Stanley Wells is a very ordinary boy. But one day he finds himself caught up in a very strange adventure. He meets the mysterious Dr Moon and his canine companion Morcambe - and encounters the terrifying effects of a Wenlock. After being thrown from a train, he realises he's just going to have to get on with things and somehow unravel the mystery of Sorrows, Wenlocks, the blank-faced children he sees all around him...and the captivating Umiko. This is a truly original work, filled with fascinating characters and strange happenings, from this unique talent. It features Joel's original artwork on every spread.
Joel Stewart was brought up in a commune in the wilds of Yorkshire. From an early age he was knocked sideways by stories, and invariably lay on the floor drawing pictures to recover. Later, in the year 2000, he graduated with a first class degree in Illustration from Falmouth College of Art. Ever since graduating (and slightly before) he has been writing and drawing for a living, and has recently moved into animation design and directing for television (while not forgetting books!). He also plays a variety of musical instruments and lives with them and some fish in London.
