This is a groundbreaking mix of fiction and full-colour comic strip that follows a headstrong girl`s journey into the bizarre fictional world of Abadazad to rescue her younger brother. In "Queen Ija`s Promise", Kate`s little brother, Matt, goes missing at a fun fair and five years later she is still coming to terms with it; failing her classes and fighting with her mum. Then an odd, elderly neighbout tells Kate that the world of Abadazad, a fictional fantasy realm that featured in Matt`s favourite stories, is real, and that Matt`s been abducted into this wonderland. Kate is sceptical, but when the old lady dies and Kate receives a glowing blue orb in a package, she is carried to Abadazad, a place "where sorrow has no home - where time has no meaning - where joy lives forever!" But why didn`t the author of "Abadazad" mention the Shellopers` bad breath? Or Queen Ija`s blue skin ?And how is she going to defeat someone as crazed and evil as Lanky Man?
