An epic tale about the value of the stories we tell from a debut author/illustrator.

Uncle Ernie is a daring adventurer and an enchanting storyteller. He travels to far-off places, where he encounters wonderous and sometimes very rare creatures. Are these places real? Are the creatures he meets? It’s up to you and his nephew Eli to decide.

All Uncle Ernie can say for sure is that when you travel, sometimes you reason and sometimes you run. But you always end up with a story to tell.
