Lovely artwork--dark story. Gr. 4 and up?

Adventure, peril, creepy old house, close-knit siblings, solid mother -- lots of good compelling stuff here. Although Dad dies in the first few panels and mom gets taken by a tentacled monster, I think this is fine even for younger readers. Fifth grade on up. ( )

The pictures and action are amazing! This story line is engaging. I like that it does not shy away from tragedy.

After the death of their father on a tragic car accident, Emily and Navin decide along their mother to move a somewhere else, in order to manage a fresh start and a more economic lifestyle. Arriving at the house, the children start exploring its many compartments and Emily finds a necklace. Little did she knew back then what the necklace actually was. That night, their mother is lured into the basement and kidnaped by a mysterious creature. Following her, the kids end out at an unknown place with no way to go back home.
And so we are told the adventure of Emily and Navin in order to save their mother. But this story is full of weird creatures and creepy places.

This was a good graphic novel, just way too predictable. The story is a bit cliché. It is indeed a likeable story but it lacked something.
A fun quick read but afterall not much. Looking forward for the next book in the series. ( )

For all its flaws, this is a well-written book. It’s quick-paced and keeps your interest from the first page until the last. You don’t have to worry about young readers getting bored in the middle and not finishing the book.
