As a 12-year-old boy, Henry York, who is staying with his uncle and aunt, discovers the cupboards in his uncle’s attic with his cousin Henrietta and friends (like Zeke, Penelope, and Anastasia). It all starts when Henry hears alarming noises in his wall and begins cutting away the plaster to seek what is beyond. Finding the cupboards, he endeavors to enter the portal into a new world. They meet dangerous witches and mystical wizards, but most importantly they learn the meaning of friendship and redemption. The children also learn some surprising facts about their family that they never knew!
As these cupboards and their secrets are unlocked, N.D. Wilson keeps his readers glued to the book – I couldn’t put it down! The 100 Cupboards novel is bursting with wonder and excitement as young Henry unlocks the secrets of ages past. As a 12-year-old myself, this story helps me to learn the importance of courage, perseverance, and friendship. As I learn of these deeds, I also enjoy the fantastic tale of the 100 cupboards!
I advise anyone that does not have a good summer book to read 100 Cupboards! I love to read these books over and over again, and I hope you will too! Now stop reading this, and go unlock the cupboards!
Henrietta (a girl character) has a personality a lot like Jill from "A Horse and His Boy", Penelope (H's older sister) is a lot like Susan from "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe". The cupboards to other worlds is like a combination of the Wardrobe and the Wood Between The Worlds, combined. The witch is like the White Witch and the Lady of the Green Girdle, combined. Etc etc etc.
Mr. Wilson's style is amazing! I remember sitting in class or talking with him in office hours when I was his student and listening to him expound on word choice and sentence structure and etc. But I didn't quite get it all then. That was two years ago. Yesterday, I read his first book, Leepike Ridge, and was disappointed ... oh, sure, the story was amazing, but the style wasn't all that it seemed he wanted us to aim for. But this book more than made up for that. I wish I could just read the descriptions over and over, the little turns of phrase, delightful word choices. Wordsmiths will definitely love this book!!!
