100 Cupboards, by N.D. Wilson is a charming story about a boy who finds a magical cupboard in his room, hidden behind a wall, where each small door leads to somewhere . . . else. This is also a story about twelve year old Henry breaking away from his very overprotective parents to discover new, and dangerous, adventures. The first book in a series, 100 Cupboards leaves many questions unanswered – but that’s where Dandelion Fire (Book #2) picks up. Wormburner (son#2) said 100 Cupboards was “slow in the beginning, but then it gets really good.” Wilson uses lots of very descriptive words and turns of phrase that make this a more challenging read than its 4.2 reading level would imply. There is some violence, but nothing graphic. Overall, a good read for advanced readers 8+.
