{Synopsis} – 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.

{My thoughts} – Emily and Navin lose their father in a terrible accident. Their mother moves them to a home that belonged to her family. The house is extremely run down and needs a lot of TLC but the family decides to clean it up and make it a more livable environment.

They start to hear a weird noise downstairs and the basement and their mom goes to investigate. They hear her scream and then they go down after her. They end up going through a door that takes them some place different. It takes awhile but soon they learn that there are a lot of creatures where they are that are not good creatures.

One of the creatures has their mom. They go in search of her and trying to save her. It leads them to a world and situation that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to them. They start to try and figure out what needs to be down in order to save their mom. They make some new friends on the way and try to figure out what they should do.

This is a book that is based around tragedy. The kids are forced to deal with the loss of their father. Then they are forced to deal with knowing their mom was taken by some strange creature. This book helps to show children that even though things seem bad, there is still a chance that things can potentially get better.

I think this book is a nice book and will make a great addition to any child’s library. Especially any child that enjoys reading graphic novels.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
