This is about some kids who meet a girl and they go exploring in her deceased grandfather's house. The get scared and run away, and come back the next day to discover a portal to another world. Two of the kids end up stuck in the other world, and the story continues in the next book.
This story kind of reminds me about The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
This story could be used to talk about right from wrong. For example, if asked to skip class, students can discuss how this is wrong.
This story can also be used to discuss how to make new friends.

The first volume of what seems to be a fun exciting fantasy series. According to the publication information, this was originally published in Belgium and since it also has a translator, I'm assuming this was originally written in either Flemish or French.

As exciting as the it is, I would not recommend this for children 8, as some of the creatures drawn seem to be of the stuff of nightmares. Somewhat of a Secret of NIMH vibe. But if they can handle it, then they're in for what seems to be the beginning of an exciting adventure. ( )

I was drawn in by the trade paperback feel to the book and the detailed, full-colour graphics. However, I struggled with the general character development, plot jumps and transitions of graphic novels as a whole and this book does not stand out as different. The simplistic style and bright illustrations will appeal to the target audience. ( )

The first in a trilogy, this gorgeously illustrated fantasy introduces how three boys meet Rebecca and end up finding a door to another world through an old movie projector in an empty old house. Being the first book, we meet all the characters, are given enough backstory, some foreshadowing and a cliffhanger ending. Following the format of the traditional graphic novel/comic serial, this is a great book for younger ages to get started on a graphic fantasy series. Four very enjoyable main characters and an intriguing plot has me dying to know what happens next. Fortunately the other two books have also been released in English all at the same time. ( )

It’s quickly paced to keep young readers from getting bored. Adults will find the story just as engaging as well.

It's bad enough when Max, Rebecca, Noah, and Theo just think Grandpa Gabe's house is haunted. But then the old movie projector in the library opens a passageway to a world of monsters and creatures made of shadows - a place of secrets and dangers set loose when the sun sets. The only weapons to fight them lie in the land on the other side of the Shadow Door. . .
