Shortly after Jack is born, strange things are afoot in the Bokimble house-glasses fall from shelves, and nothing seems to be where Mr. and Mrs. Bokimble left it. Jack's parents begin to sense that there's something strange about their son, and it's not long before they realize that he has a secret friend: his magical shadow.

Is Jack's shadow a superpower that he needs to control and master? Or is it a curse that will separate him from others? Travel with Jack on his boyhood journey as he learns not only how to control his magical shadow but what it means to be different-a story that mines the potential for magic and mystery in all of us.

Editorial Reviews

"The Curious Chronicles of Jack Bokimble is a little like it's hero's shadow: so unique it has its own scent-a potent mix of cloud vapor, titanium, Mallomars and a spark of something I've never heard before. All I'm sure of is... I loved it." -Ethan Hawke"Jack Bokimble and his shadow are charming. The only thing this book is missing is an accompanying flashlight for each of us to practice our shadow casting." -Jason Blum"If Roald Dahl and Wes Anderson had a baby, the result would be this book. Touching and sentimental but also weird and wacky and very original, DeMonaco's book will have adults laughing as much as kids. Anyone who ever felt different, unpopular, weird, will relate to Jack's journey as he grows to accept what makes him so special."-John Leguizamo "A magical and wondrous romp of a story, with humor, action, and a satisfying ending." -Linda Oatman High, author of One Amazing Elephant "I'll never look at my shadow the same way again. Jack Bokimble is a hero for every shy kid who just needs their moment in the spotlight." -Ron Bates, author The Unflushables
