9780142426814: The Forbidden Library

Late one night Alice Creighton hears her father having an argument with a fairy – a snarling, bald beast with warts and needle-like teeth.

The next day her father disappears, never to return. And Alice is sent to live with Master Geryon, an uncle she never even knew existed.

Geryon has a dark, mysterious library which is strictly off-limits to Alice. But after meeting a talking cat who is willing to sneak her in, Alice opens a book and suddenly finds herself inside it – and the only way out is by conquering the dangerous creatures within . . .

Review:

"Compulsive fantasy with a brave, brilliant heroine." ( Metro)

"Reminiscent of Corneila Funke's Inkheart and Neil Gaiman's Coraline . . . Wexler ingeniously creates an inventive world with interesting creatures and frightening situations." ( School Library Journal)

" The Forbidden Library by Django Wexler is a dream come true for book lovers, child and adult alike . . . certainly deserving of becoming a classic in the future." ( BookZone4Boys)

"Working in the grand tradition of children’s fantasy, Wexler’s off to a promising start" ( Kirkus Reviews)

"A charming, adventuresome fantasy from a promising new author" ( Booklist)

"Will gratify book lovers and fantasy experts alike" ( The Horn Book)

"A refreshing and unique tale – one that rises above the clichés it could so easily have fallen into – that entertains on every level. It’s pitched perfectly to its audience (as well as those who are a few years older...) and, while only time will tell if it becomes a classic, it treats the familiar tropes with care and respect, leaving the reader wanting more after the final page has been turned." ( Starburst)

"This is a brilliant story, and Django Wexler is a name to remember - as if you could forget it!" ( Books Monthly, Children's Book of the Month)

Book Description:

Alice always thought fairy tales had happy endings – until the day she met her first fairy . . .
