Welcome to Monster Isle

Written by Oliver Chin, Illustrated by Jeff Miracola

"Jeff's work has fascinated me since we first met while working on games like Dungeons & Dragons. His art and imagination were cutting-edge then, and what he brings to the children's book world is cutting-edge now."
-Tony DiTerlizzi, co-creator of The Spiderwick Chronicles.

San Francisco, California - September 15, 2008 - Immedium, Inc. proudly announces the publication of Welcome to Monster Isle.

A family's vacation goes bananas when a perfect storm tosses their skipper's tiny boat off course. Now seven castaways are stranded on an uncharted desert island! Finnegan, his sister, parents and dog Howl venture into the wild and encounter a menagerie of colorful monsters. Can these hardy survivors befriend seven beasts straight from their wildest imaginations?

Whimsical and lushly layered illustrations invigorate a zootopia of mythical creatures like the Yowie and Ogo Pogo. Adventurous readers will take a trip they'll never forget, since being lost was never so fantastic!
