The Charlatan's Boy

The Charlatan's Boy
by Jonathan Rogers

What a charming and witty book!  A young adult novel, The Charlatan's Boy is a book full of hilarity, imagination, inner exploration and discovery.  Floyd and young Grady travel town to town selling hoaxes, false ideas and solutions trying to survive, their most favored being the idea of Feechiefolk..  When people stop believing in this hoax, Floyd and Grady are scrambling to survive.  They stumble upon a plan to make it big while maintaining their desired line of work, peddling the tale of Feechies.  Through encounters with other peddlers, villagers, and other countrymen, their tale spins and web that all become entangled in. 

A joy to read for all...  Adult and young adult alike,  Rogers offers entertainment in a way reminiscent of C.S. Lewis and Mark Twain.  This book should become an instant classic!

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated for writing this review.
