The first book in this new series will captivate young teen readers from the first chapter. Twelve-year-old Henry York, informed that his parents have been kidnapped by terrorists while biking in South America, arrives in Henry, Kansas to stay with his Uncle Frank, Aunt Dotty, and their three daughters, Anastasia, Penelope, and Henrietta. Henry soon discovers that his attic room is the location of 99 small cupboards, each with a door, some locked, some not--each connecting to another place or world. This is the beginning of the magic for Henry and Henrietta as they experiment with poking things into the open doors and learn that there is evil behind some of them. There is also the mystery of the locked bedroom door of their grandfather, who has been dead for two years. Henry finds that his childhood to this point has been too restricted, that he needs to cultivate his imagination. Rather than letting his fears get the best of him, can Henry be courageous in the face of the evil, especially the evil witch, that threatens the whole family? Horton, whose career includes work on and off-Broadway, as well as film, radio, and television, does an admirable job reading. He captures with professional ease the whine of Anastasia, the breaking adolescent voice of Zeke, the evil cackling voice of the witch, and the Midwestern twang of Frank and Dotty Willis, as well as others in the amazing array of characters. Highly entertaining and suspenseful. Category: Fiction Audiobooks.
