Never before has Islesboro Island had its' own collection of tales and legends. Now you can read them here, for the very first time, in this unique collection, just as they were discovered in 1999, when a large and rickety wooden trunk bound with iron latches washed up on the shores of the rocky Islesboro town beach. Upon prying it open, it was found to contain a number of ancient leather bound tomes, all seriously waterlogged but nonetheless identifiable as old Islesboro ledgers, account books, and pocket diaries. One small journal, a diary firmly bound with thin leather straps, had a cover whose faded gold lettering said ' Islesboro Taradiddles' . This is the true story of that journal’s contents, and only the facts have been made up. A miscellany of mischief, magic, marvels, and merriment, with more than thirty two tall tales, whoppers, apologues, songs, and stories unique to Islesboro.

REVIEWERS' QUOTE: 
"You'll  laugh, you'll cry, you'll gasp,   at this eclectic oeuvre from our island muse, as you find yourself and your friends inside this fantastical and fantastic reality of myths, legends, ditties, and songs, at their most surreal. A truly remarkable creative imagination, heart, mind, and soul has bestowed this treat.” 
 -  Suzanna Love,  The 5th generation to visit Islesboro for the summer and never leave. 

 

REVIEWERS' COMMENTARY: 
The stolid multi-generational 'year rounders' , living and working on Islesboro Island for generations, present a striking contrast to the migratory summer population's distinctly international, world-weary milieu. Both groups are fiercely independent, and can trace their respective roots, and immutable behaviors, for generations.  
Taking her inspiration from this proverbial intermingling of disparate populations, the author has applied this rich human diversity and "rediscovered" legendary tall tales, songs, and whoppers, replete with remarkable characters, and embedded them in an imaginary past. Pared with antique illustrations, this unmistakably links present behavior with ancient universal roots. The result is brilliant, incisive, witty, and utterly unique. These tales truly seem as if they always belonged solely to Islesboro, and now, they always will.
 - Orbus Review
