A kaleidoscopic tale of cruel beasts, daring thieves, lost sweethearts, and a family on the run, told through twenty-six fold-up paper fortune tellers.
Each cootie catcher features eight possible endings—but the endings are also beginnings, complications, transformations, jumping-off points for other parts of the tale. Read them alone or with a partner, using any method you like: counting off bolded words and numbers, choosing panels that strike your fancy, or simply laying them flat. From jailbreaks to kissing practice, murders to museum heists, each trip through Lianna Fled the Cranberry Bog reveals new sides of this multifaceted, interactive tale of wonder and terror.
“Another marvelous and whimsical narrative project from one of the most interesting small presses you’re likely to encounter.”
—Kelly Link, author of Get In Trouble
“I absolutely adore this haunting, dark, strange, glorious work of art…. I have been playing this book/game for hours and I’ll never get enough of it.”
—Edward Carey, author of Little and The Iremonger Trilogy
