Me, All Alone, at the End of the World

author: M.T. Anderson
illustrator: Kevin Hawkes

A peaceful and contemplative boy lives alone at the End of the World, hunting treasure with old maps and whistling tunes. Until, that is, a self-styled Professional Visionary arrives and puts up a sign: CONSTANTINE SHIMMER'S GALVANO-MAGICAL END OF THE WORLD TOURS. FUN ALL THE TIME! Soon men with machines come to pave a clearing for the inn and theme park, and the touring children seem nice, but still . . . From M. T. Anderson and Kevin Hawkes comes a wistful, wondrous ode to the pleasures of peace and solitude.

“Gorgeous, complex. . . . A work that requires — and is eminently worthy of — many re-readings.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
