NOT SINCE THE WIZARD OF OZ STORMED OUT OF KANSAS HAS THERE BEEN A STORY FILLED WITH AS MUCH MAGIC FOR AMERICA . . .
… FROM AN AMERICAN!
Author, N.D. Wilson grew up in the wheat fields of rural Idaho, scrambling through barns, playing baseball, and chasing crop-dusters with his BB gun. But he was also an avid reader of fantasy classics, and if his childhood reading taught him anything, it was this:
“It seemed as If you want to have a magical adventure, you have to be from England.”
Well . . . not anymore.
100 Cupboards and Dandelion Fire are bringing magic back to America, and on January 26th, they will be joined by The Chestnut King!
Henry York has always been timid and overprotected–his world is mechanical and dull. But now that he’s been bussed off to stay with his cousins in Kansas, the world is changing. In this new world, there’s baseball and barbecue and big red barns. There’s a Kansas sky at night, crowded with stars, and warm wind roiling the wheat. There’s an attic bedroom in a mysterious farmhouse. And, strangest of all, something is knocking inside his wall. When the plaster is stripped away, 99 cupboards are revealed–portholes and drawers and post office boxes–different sizes, different shapes . . . all leading to different places.
Now, throughout North America and around the world, kids are traveling through those cupboard doors, living the adventures of Henry York and his cousins.
