The Whisper

Aaron Starmer. Farrar.

Gr 5-8–In this sequel to The Riverman (2014), Alistair journeys into Aquavania, a hidden universe of connected worlds created by “daydreamers.” In search of his lost friend, Fiona, he makes his way from one psychedelic landscape to the next, hot on the trail of a creature known as The Whisper, who’s sucking the life force from the daydreamers and overtaking their worlds. Dark and strange, this is a wholly original tale that combines real-life horror, fantasy, and mythology and reverberates with complex themes about creation, responsibility, and imagination.
