Footsteps in Bay de Verde

A Mysterious Tale

  Author:   Charis Cotter  
  Artist :   Jenny Dwyer    
  Publisher:  Running the Goat

Bridie and her brother and sister love to sit up late, listening to the adults trade stories. One stormy night the talk is not only about the price of fish, ghosts and pirates, but also about Poor Keye, a neighbour in hospital who had always loved these storied nights. A loud bang and the sound of his familiar shuffling footsteps suggests that perhaps he is home after all, and has come to join the gathering. But when Bridie’s mother goes to welcome him, Poor Keye is nowhere to be found. The next morning a telegram arrives with shocking news.

Award-winning author Charis Cotter joins forces with emerging illustrator Jenny Dwyer to craft this deliciously creepy book.
