Something About Jon Klassen

Mist-y eyed.

The Big Issue recently (Aug. 6) recently promoted Canadian author and illustrator Jon Klassen's new book The Skull: A Tyrolean Folktale, and asked the author to recommend some more gothic tales for young readers. One of those was The Mansion in the Mist:
The old edition of this is one of the handsomest books I’ve ever seen. It’s about a boy who goes to visit an island in Canada and stays in an old house and finds a wooden chest which leads to another shadowy dimension full of druid types.
