Gargantis

author: Thomas Taylor
illustrator: Tom Booth

series name:
The Legends of Eerie-on-Sea

There's a storm brewing over Eerie-on-Sea, and the fisherfolk say a monster is the cause. Someone has woken the ancient Gargantis, who sleeps in the watery caves beneath this spooky seaside town where legends have a habit of coming to life. Gargantis is looking for something: a treasure stolen from her underwater lair. And it just might be in the Lost-and-Foundery at the Grand Nautilus Hotel, in the care of one Herbert Lemon, Lost-and-Founder. With the help of the daring Violet Parma, ever reliable Herbie will do his best to figure out what Gargantis wants and who stole her treasure in the first place. In a town full of suspicious, secretive characters, it could be anyone!

“Evocative settings, ingenious plotting, sly humor, and shivery suspense render this sequel an unmitigated delight.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

author’s comments:
Thomas Taylor is an award-winning author-illustrator for children whose debut novel, Malamander, kicked off this mystery series. He illustrated the cover for the original British edition of the first Harry Potter book and has since gone on to write and illustrate several picture books and young adult novels, including the graphic novel Scarlett Hart: Monster Hunter by Marcus Sedgwick. Thomas Taylor lives on the south coast of England.
illustrator’s comments:
Tom Booth makes marks. He makes marks in books like this one, and he sometimes makes marks that move. Some of his marks — like those in Don't Blink! and This Is Christmas — have been given stars. Raised just outside Philadelphia, Tom Booth made his earliest marks on his parents’ antique table. He thinks the table looks better now. His parents aren't so sure. He lives in Brooklyn.
