Tony Bain (working title) is an upcoming illustrated chapter book about a Grade 5 boy, Tony, who suffers in school both socially and academically due to his overactive imagination. He is a victim of bullies; he finds school largely uninteresting; and his closest friends are the monsters he creates in his mind. The story is told in two parallel arcs that work together — a real one, with Tony and the people around him, and an imaginary one, with his monsters — and Tony’s creativity, at first his weakness, becomes the source of his strength. This fantasy-crossover is a whimsical tale of overcoming personal flaws.
