Gawgon and the Boy

By Lloyd Alexander

Published Jan 2010

‘Give me the boy.’ These words have the ring of a death sentence to 11 year old David as elderly, tough-minded Aunt Annie says them. He’s recovering from an illness so serious that he almost died. And now this? But arrangements are quickly made – the aged woman, who seems as frightening as a monstrous, snake-haired Gorgon, will become his tutor.

But in no time David changes his mind about The Gawgon, his secret nickname for her. Soon she begins to co-star in his fantasies – The Gawgon and The Boy can do anything, go anywhere. Together they rescue King Tut’s treasure, scale mountains, outwit master criminals and fool the gods…
