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. . .

The Shadow Door is the first in The Elsewhere Chronicles series and is a fun adventure that involves some seriously creepy fantastical creatures. I loved the illustrations in this graphic novel. I have a thing for full color graphics and I really liked the style of it. It was a lot shorter than I was expecting when I ordered it from the library, but I know there’s a second out that I will now need to procure. I think my students would really enjoy The Elsewhere Chronicles.

Recommended for 2nd Grade and up.
