Three hundred years ago from now,
when land was tilled with horse and plough
An innocent man was hunted down,
and thrown into a lake to drown
Over time, the lake stagnated,
and memory of the man abated
But one dark night there came a storm,
and Crackly Bones, the fiend, was born!
A grisly illustrated book for adults and older children. Art by Simon Schild.
