Publisher's Summary

The Lake That Stole Children blends the magic of Disney's Pinocchio with the magnificent quest of Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea. It begins with a boy's deep yearning and leads to a grown man's startling discovery. The story opens in a town that is troubled by a big secret. Children have been disappearing and no one knows why. A fisherman, who lives with his family on the outskirts of town, cared nothing about the town's troubles -- until he too lost a son.

After a dangerous search on a nearby lake, the fisherman believes he knows where the children may be and vows to save them. When the town refuses to help in his quest, the fisherman realizes that to save his son he must face one seemingly insurmountable obstacle -- himself.

Critic Reviews

"The characters live in a world of enchantment and the reader is drawn into that world by the words and story ...The descriptive power of his words ... was exceptional." ( Midwest Book Review)
"As a former teacher, I would highly recommend this descriptive short tale especially to educators who are trying to stimulate imaginative writing in their students." (Regis Schilken, author, critic)
"I read this book with my niece when she visited last weekend. She was mesmerized by the prose. When she went home, she talked about the book to her father. She said that the conversation brought them closer to each other." (Irene Roth, author, critic)
