A Novel


From the NewYork Times bestselling author of TheStolen Child comes a hypnotic literary horror novel about a young boytrapped inside his own world, whose drawings blur the lines between fantasy andreality.

Ever since he nearly drowned in the ocean threeyears earlier, ten-year-old Jack Peter Keenan has been deathly afraid toventure outdoors. Refusing to leave his home in a small coastal town in Maine,Jack Peter spends his time drawing monsters. When those drawings take on a lifeof their own, no one is safe from the terror they inspire. His mother, Holly,begins to hear strange sounds in the night coming from the ocean, and she seeksanswers from the local Catholic priest and his Japanese housekeeper, who fillher head with stories of shipwrecks and ghosts. His father, Tim, wanders thebeach, frantically searching for a strange apparition running wild in thedunes. And the boy’s only friend, Nick, becomes helplessly entangled in theeerie power of the drawings. While those around Jack Peter are haunted by whatthey think they see, only he knows the truth behind the frightful occurrences asthe outside world encroaches upon them all.

In the tradition of The Turn of the Screw, Keith Donohue’s The Boy Who Drew Monsters is a mesmerizing tale of psychologicalterror and imagination run wild, a perfectly creepy read for a dark night.
