The Purloined Boy is a work of fantasy literature for young adults. In parts dark and grotesque, in others luminous and inspiring; it could be described as R.L. Stine meets Plato. It begins with the question, “Where do all those children on the milk cartons go?” It provides the answer through the eyes of a boy named Trevor Upjohn—the purloined boy. Trevor endures the misery of life in Superbia but dreams of going home. He finds unlikely allies in an old man, a girl named Maggie, and a strange but powerful mouse named Zephyr.The Purloined Boy brings together the worlds of young adult fantasy and classical philosophy. It reads like a popular young adult fantasy, but for those with eyes to see, the book is suffused with allusions to philosophical themes and insights. These are never presented in a didactic manner; rather they are woven into the story to provide depth and richness without drawing attention to them. The Purloined Boy is intended to be both entertaining and enriching – the sort of book that can be read again and again for enjoyment and profit.
