Isabel Wixon sees ghosts. Her friends consist of a talkative ventriloquist’s dummy and a gentlemanly spider living in her hair. Real friends? Too hard. Inventing friends—much easier. Inventing the Boatman—a terrible monster that lures kids into a permanent sleeping sickness—probably wasn’t one of her better ideas.
