Fantastic Feechiefen Fable…


These are the words that lined Floyd Wendellson’s wagon as he pulled into each small town and country village that spanned the island of Corenwald.  Floyd made his living off of convincing the people of Corenwald that he had captured a real, live “he-feechie,” one of the small creatures that populated the Feechiefen Swamp.  What Floyd really had was a young boy named Grady, whose part in Floyd’s act left him wondering who he really was, where he had come from, and if there was any place in the world where he could truly find love.

Pull up a chair, grab a cup of something warm and comforting, and join Grady on his journey as he tries to discover where he belongs in the world.  If you were ever charmed by the adventures of Tom Sawyer or Huckleberry Finn, you will love Grady…just Grady.  Jonathan Rogers does a beautiful job of creating the world of Corenwald and the famous feechie legend.  In the simple, lovable character of Grady, he embodies the ideals of days gone by and draws his reader into a world long forgotten by the hustle and bustle of our current age.  Rogers’ story will captivate and surprise you; leaving you wanting just a little bit more.  A tale that will draw in the heart of any age, “The Charlatan’s Boy” is truly a must-read!
