Edited by the New York Times bestselling comics creator Kazu Kibuishi, The Lost Islands offers a collection of seven all-new stories written and illustrated by an award-winning roster of comics artists, with each story centered around the theme of hidden places.

This graphic anthology includes well-written, beautifully illustrated stories by: Kibuishi Kazu (the Amulet series)Jason Caffoe (the Flight series)Raina Telgemeier (Drama and Smile)Dave Roman (the Astronaut Academy series)Jake Parker (the Missile Mouse series)Michel Gagné (The Saga of Rex)Katie and Steven Shanahan (the Flight series)And up-and-coming artist Chrystin Garland All seven author/artists tie their scary or exhilarating nautical adventures to metaphorical underpinnings. Captain Ahab–like obsession with catching the big one leads a sailor into a cave that is really a giant mouth. One young castaway meets a crab ghost. Another meets someone she never expected to see: an older version of herself. A young island girl is lured to join tiki-masked celebrants who turn out to be dead.

Beautifully drawn, each artist works in a different style, but all share humor, suspense, and a buoyant tone. Young readers will be entertained, and maybe a little scared, by this one-of-a-kind, alone-on-an-island tales of mystery and magic.
