An exciting adventure story and children's allegory about the realities of death, power and allegiance. Somewhere beyond the rain, the wind and the stars, and as far from the Earth as it's possible to be, there was a town so old that no one can remember how or when it began. It was a town where everyone stayed exactly the same, a town where no one grew older, a town surrounded by a million miles of yellow corn, which was so strange that if you went in, you disappeared immediately. And perhaps Thistown would have always stayed the same if they hadn't found The Sleeping Man. He changed everything...Forever.
