The legend hails from northern seas, a tale that few know well,
Where faith and fear blow freely on the gray and changing swell.
Mark well the drift of this account, and come to understand
That humble and heroic things go often hand in hand.
The Kraken, by Robert L. Jones, III, and illustrated by James P. Wood, is a fantasy tale told in poetic verse. It follows the journey of a bereaved and lovelorn youngster into manhood. Conscripted by brigands, he is later aided by a seaside prophet and various creatures as he seeks to destroy a monster that preys upon vessels in northern shipping lanes and to recover what has been taken away from him.
