A Review of The Secret Journal of Ichabod Crane by Alex Irvine

My Review:

If you love the television show, Sleepy Hollow, this book is a must have.

The Secret Journal of Ichabod Crane contains drawings, sketches, background info, newspaper clippings, files from Sheriff Corbin...alot of the stuff the mention in the show but we never actually can see it in this book.

Plus you'll get fun journal entries, lists, notes and throughts from Ichabod...example:

~Water in the shower will get really hot or really cold and will run out

~coffee shops are everywhere

~skinny jeans are terrible

I absolutely love this book! What a fabulous companion to the show. I'll be reading it over and looking at the files and images in it while the show is on hiatus over the holidays.

The Secret Journal of Ichabod Crane 
by Alex Irvine

Pages: 208 
ISBN: 978-0-553-41898-9


“I am Ichabod Crane, born in the year 1747. It seems this is the year 2013 Anno Domini, and I have been given new life—how, I know not; why, I know not. I will discern the truth—if, that is, I can keep my head.”

In "Sleepy Hollow," a supernatural twist on Washington Irving's classic short story, Ichabod Crane has been pulled two-and-a-half centuries through time to find that he and detective Abbie Mills are humanity's last hope in the war against evil. Passionate, intelligent, and wryly funny, Crane has always used journals to collect thoughts and documents that may prove useful later, and The Secret Journal of Ichabod Crane offers an unprecedented look at the battle also raging inside his fascinating mind.

On the pages within, Crane shares new memories of the American Revolution; more amusing reflections on modern-day phenomena, from the Internet to Election Day; and private thoughts about Abbie, Katrina, and others. He also includes hidden case files; secret Freemason puzzles; selections from George Washington's mysterious Bible; and photos, letters, and drawings he has collected along the way. Filled with detail about past battles and vanquished monsters, as well as clues about those he and Abbie have yet to face, this journal is not just the ultimate repository for fans, but the key to Sleepy Hollow’s future—and the world’s.
