Something To Look Forward To

On May 5, 2009 author Reif Larsen's illustrated debut novel, The Selected Works of T. S. Spivet, will be published by Penguin Press. Having just read the galley, I highly recommend this book and look forward to its publication. T. S. is a genius cartographer with a vivid imagination and the skills of a seasoned professional. This book is best described as a modern day picaresque novel with one of the most engaging heroes ever. We watch as young T. S. attempts to understand the ways of the world and what he discovers is both heartwarming and honest. Ostensibly written for younger readers, this book has broad appeal for both the young in age and the young at heart.
