Twelve-year-old Henry is sent to stay with his relatives in Kansas due to his parents being held captive while on a traveling adventure. Henry goes on his own traveling adventures when he discovers 99 cupboards in his attic room.

I found this to be a great book until the last quarter, which happened to be the climax of the book. That's when the major fantasy components kicked into gear and I didn't care for that part. I really enjoyed Henry getting acquainted with his relatives and his environment, then of course, the discovery of the cupboards, but blah to where the plot evolved - not the whole plot, just some of it. At this point, I'm not too excited about the story line to continue with the rest in the series, but one never knows for sure. We'll see.


  1. I loved Uncle Frank!

  2. Debi ~ Me, too! I thought he was great. I'm such a party-pooper! It gets to the most important part of the book and I bottom out. :( I'm sure kids love that kind of stuff (and some adults, too)! :)

  3. Debi ~ I just read your review and was surprised to read that you didn't care for the last 2 pages. WHEW! I feel a little better now. *grin*

  4. lol-I love the title-how cute. I think I may check this out and see if the library has it or is it new. Might be a good selection for the read-a-thon because as you know I like the whole supernatural element.

  5. Duh, I just saw, published 2007 so definitely not new.

  6. Dar ~ Oh yes, Dar - I think this would be a perfect choice for the read-a-thon.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
