Mike Flaherty, Oriol Vidal, illustrator
Description: What's this book about? That depends on who you ask. Our humble narrator thinks he's got a great story for you but he barely begins before he's interrupted by a scallywag pirate with a thrilling legend of mermaids and sea monsters! Soon, a cast of color characters including a hungry dinosaur, an alien bent on world domination, and a heroic knight derails the boy's saga. Everyone has a tale to tell, but if they can all get on the same page, this might turn out to be the best story ever.
