The Boatman

The Boatman


by Kat Hawthorne

The Boatman is an exciting and eerie ghost story perfect for young readers ages 8-12.

Isabel Wixon is weird. Not only does she see dead things, but her list of friends consists of a talkative ventriloquist’s dummy and the gentlemanly spider that lives in her hair. Real friends? Too hard. Inventing friends is much easier.
Inventing the Boatman—a terrible monster that lures kids into a strange sleeping sickness and never lets them go—probably wasn’t one of her better ideas though.

Full of suspense and intrigue, this book will captivate young readers with its supernatural elements and compelling storyline. Perfect for those who love a spooky read, The Boatman is a must-have addition to any young reader's bookshelf.
