The Marvels

The Marvels is a book, mostly with pictures, about an American boy, Billy Marvel, and his dog, Tar, who are on a ship which sinks and gets shipwrecked on a desert island. They are rescued by an English ship and brought to England. Tar dashes off to a theatre that is being built. Billy chases after Tar. The theatre crew find him and let him help with the plays. Billy grows up in the theatre and starts a family of actors.
Two hundred and twenty four years later a boy escapes from school and goes to his uncle's house, hears about the story of the Marvel family and has questions. He goes off in search of answers...
It is a book of mysteries, questions and answers.
