Plot: Nola’s world and life is perfect, so when two students start at her school that are a little out of the ordinary, she can’t help but try to find out what their secret is.

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 think my students would really enjoy The Elsewhere Chronicles. Recommended for 2nd Grade and up.
