It has been fifty years since the world was first introduced to Milo and his adventures in the Lands Beyond with Tock, the Humbug, and the captive princesses Rhyme and Reason. Now we have a remarkable 50th anniversary edition to honor this universally adored and deeply influential novel.
Mina loves the night. While everyone else is in a deep slumber, she gazes out the window. A blank notebook lies on the table. One night she begins to use it as a journal. As she writes, Mina makes discoveries both trivial and profound about herself, her thoughts and her dreams. This is the prequel to Skellig, a Michael L. Printz Award Winner that has been a classroom favorite for over a decade.
