Amulet The Stone Keeper
Graphic novel star Kazu Kibuishi creates a world of terrible, man-eating demons, a mechanical rabbit, a giant robot---and two ordinary children on a life-or-death mission.
After the tragic death of their father, Emily and Navin move with their mother to the home of her deceased great-grandfather, but the strange house proves to be dangerous. Before long, a sinister creature lures the kids' mom through a door in the basement. Em and Navin, desperate not to lose her, follow her into an underground world inhabited by demons, robots, and talking animals.
Eventually, they enlist the help of a small mechanical rabbit named Miskit. Together with Miskit, they face the most terrifying monster of all, and Em finally has the chance to save someone she loves.
A clever graphic novel set in a parallel Earth, guaranteed to delight young readers with a sense of adventure. On the helm in this novel are Emily and her brother Navin who survived a tragic accident and who are catapulted through circumstance into this exciting adventure after Emily finds a magical amulet in the attic of their new home.
The graphics here are beautiful as well as very colorful, which adds to the mesmerizing tale that is both touching and exciting to read. Off to a great start into this series, I think it will delight young and old. It is a short read worth wile and entertaining. I'd recommend it and hope to get my hands on to the next volume.
