Set sail with Island Book, Evan Dahm's epic graphic novel about friendship, teamwork, and the wisdom we gain when we face the unknown with bravery and an open heart.
Sola is cursed. (At least, that’s what everyone tells her.) It all started the day the Monster came to the island. While others fled, Sola stood before the creature, alone and unafraid. Since then she’s been treated like an outcast.
Shamed and feared for an event she doesn’t understand, Sola sets out to sea looking for answers. In uncharted waters far from home, she discovers that her island isn’t alone in the endless ocean—and the Monster isn’t the only life to be found there.
