Cupboards, Cupboards Everywhere!

While reading Book One: 100 Cupboards by N.D. Wilson- I found myself intrigued and scared! Henry is a twelve year old boy visiting his aunt, uncle, and cousins (all girls). His visit seems a bit mysterious and when he wakes up with plaster in his hair and knobs turning on his wall- the action really starts! Henry works hard to scrape off the rest of the plaster and reveals 100 cupboards of various shapes and sizes. He soon realizes he can hear and see through some of them. What is behind each of the cupboards? Are they safe to explore? Can anything come out? These questions and more will keep you turning the pages until you get to the end!

I like how the author built the plot and the story grew as I read. The characters were all interesting and unique. I think Henry is very brave and a bit daring because those cupboards gave me the shivers! This is a series- so it looks like there will be more exploring of the cupboards in the future- which excites me and makes my knees knock, too! I recommend this book to any kids between the ages of 9-13 who like a thrilling adventure with magic and a dose of fear!

Has anyone else read any of the 100 Cupboard series? Or another book by N.D. Wilson?

Happy Reading!

  14. This sounds like an intriguing read, and I like the idea of the mystery surrounding the cupboards as well. I a good adventurous main character is definitely what we need for a story like this - the sound of it makes me think of Narnia!

    1. Olivia- I can see why it makes you think of Narnia! All the cupboards are fascinating and truly a little scary. It would be like having 100 Narnia's all at once- each one different. Definitely a mysterious and intriguing read. :) ~L
