Starts out in MN and then takes a sharp left into a very darkly strange place. First in a series.

Candy Quakenbush travels to another world called the Abarat. She meets all kinds of new people in the Abarat and has to run for her life from the evil Lord of Midnight. As she travels through Abarat, she has this feeling that she has been there before! It is a really good book and I would recommend it to anyone who likes fantasy/adventure books. The book has tons of beautiful color drawings by the author!

This book I avoided for a while because the plot sounded really goofy, but once I started it, I couldn't stop. A great fantasy and yet haunting in some parts. A great book.

I orignally read this book, the first in the Abarat series, years ago when it first came out. I read it a second time recently, as the third in the series came out in 2011, and enjoyed it just as much the first time. The plot may not be the best or the characters the most developed, but it is a fun fantasy/horror novel that would be interesting to any age.

this book was adorable. I started it over a year ago, and put it down. I'm kind of an OCD reader and it wasn't holding my attention at the time. I've since cycled back to a wanting to read about children in alternate scary&wonderful realities, and could not put it down.
