Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Lost Boy:"Drily funny . . . [and] jaw-droppingly gorgeous." -Publishers Weekly"A visually exciting, cinematic atmosphere." -School Library Journal"Dark Horse author/illustrator Ruth creates a sinister, yet familiar urban fantasy of parallel worlds . . . A refreshing fantasy in which not all is spelled out, with tantalizing hints at a sequel." -Kirkus"Kids are always clamoring for scary books, but far too few deliver the goods in a satisfyingly creepy way. Fortunately, that's not the case with this eerie, atmospheric graphic novel," -Horn Book
