Run Far, Run Fast - Timothy Decker

Decker presents some of the best illustrated stories I've ever seen, about a girl caught up in the horrors of the black death of mid-14th century Europe. The problem is that most young readers will not be able to follow and/or understand what is being presented and drawn. Decker is an amazing artist, and I've rarely seen such lovingly cross hatching details, but as an author he isn't anything special and this could have been incredible with the help of a professional writer.
