Wondertown (Musical edition)
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
A musical story, Wondertown is a new kind of reading experience for adventurous readers of all ages! It includes the full-length novel, twelve original songs—each one an extension of the story sung by the characters themselves—and seventeen illustrations from acclaimed illustrator, Emrah Elmasli.
The story centres around Neil Abbott, an undersized, introverted eleven-year old boy with the ability to tell about people by touching their possessions. He doesn’t fit in either at home or at school and rarely speaks to anyone, with the exception of his grandmother, who has a secret talent of her own.
One day, after a particularly difficult week, Neil asks his grandmother if she thinks he’s normal, and she responds by telling him the remarkable story of an unlikely hero, who long ago crossed the five parts of the world to free his only friend from a demon lord. Filled with hidden meaning, vivid images, and songs that bring the characters to life, Wondertown is an unforgettable journey to a place inside each of us few of us dare to go.
Wondertown is an amazing book
This book is really unique - it's a combination of music and a story, and the music is awesome. What a fantastic idea! The book should be made into a movie. Highly recommended for kids, especially junior high school kids.
