By Will O’Mahony

“Talent hits a target no-one else can hit; genius hits a target no-one else can see.” Schopenhauer

The child one expects is never the child one receives.

Boon is smart. Really smart. He’s skipped four years of school, possesses a photographic memory and was playing Mozart and Beethoven aged two. So why is it so hard for him to wake up?

Coma Land tells the story of a fifteen year old boy genius who finds himself trapped in a world between life and death. There, he meets Penguin, a young girl determined to fly, and they quickly become friends. But when her protective father stands between them and their escape, Boon soon learns that the one thing you can never outsmart is the truth.

From the daring and imaginative mind of Will O’Mahony (Tonsils + Tweezers, The Mars Project, Great White), comes a magical story celebrating children, difference, and the depths of parental love. An epic tale about pianos, prodigies, penguins and pandas, Coma Land asks, if it takes ten thousand hours to master something difficult, then why can it take a lifetime to accept something simple.
