Synopsis

I lost myself inside a book last night. Then found myself in a galactic fight ...

A thrilling world awaits you inside The Paper Doorway! From "The Woggle Wrangler" to "The Wart," from "Boogeyman" to "The Bear with One Green Ear," from "The Monstrous Broccoli Excuse" to "An Angry Poem by a Dragon's Mother," Dean Koontz's poetry is wickedly entertaining fun.

With 225 million copies of his books sold, New York Times -- megaselling author Dean Koontz has been called "America's most popular suspense novelist" -- but that only begins to describe his endless talent and imagination. Following the success of his previous children's book, Santa's Twin, Koontz has created a richly inventive book of poems, illustrated in black-and-white by Phil Parks, that delivers a powerhouse combination of humor and spookiness.
