Book Launch: The Mysterious Messenger by Gilbert Ford

Gilbert Book

Isn’t this cover delicious? There’s something so enticing about an illustrated middle grade novel, and this fast-paced story complete with psychics, ghosts, and hidden treasure is no exception. Author-illustrator Gilbert Ford’s debut novel The Mysterious Messenger is super-fun and super-cute, perfect for any reader of any age who wants to curl up on a couch and escape. (You don’t have to be ten to enjoy an illustrated novel. I won’t judge!)

Travel from present day Brooklyn to Greenwich Village’s mysterious past, full of abstract art, beatnik poets, and dizzying jazz. When you return, you won’t be disappointed!

Let me know what you think when you’re done giving it a look. Happy reading!
