The Kraken

A Picture Book by


Where there is light, there must also be shadow... and monsters that lurk in the dark. By internationally acclaimed children's author, Gary Crew, and outstanding illustrator, Marc McBride, The Kraken tells the story of two children's encounter with a shadowy beast that lives in the depths of the sea. Christopher is blind - though for no physiological reason. Antonia, his sister, is a cynic and blind to the possibilities of her brother's imagination. It is through Christopher's determination and faith that he will see - that the frightful Kraken, the beast of doubt, is defeated, sinking forever into the murky depths of the ocean.
