Did you ever wonder what it would be like to find a door that opened onto a different world? What if you found not just one, but one hundred?

This is the Hundred Cupboards series, woven from the stuff of childhood daydreams. Henry York finds a hundred portals to other worlds hidden behind the peeling plaster of his attic bedroom. The doors open on places magical and mysterious; but a terrible witch lies trapped behind a cupboard labelled Endor, and Henry accidentally releases her into the world—and begins an adventure that will send him in and out of worlds he never knew existed.

Like the cupboards themselves, the series is fascinating and a little bit frightening. It's full of magic and wizards and fairies, Kansas and barbecues and baseball, but it's grounded in powerful themes of love and sacrifice. The worlds are rich and intriguing, familiar but also unfamiliar.

But it's not just the fantasy worlds that prove to be exciting, or worth visiting. Normal, real-world activities like family dinner time, or baseball, are shown to be the real things worth having. This is a series for readers with a thirst for adventure and spine-tingling mystery, but N.D. Wilson doesn't intend to leave readers disatisfied with their own less exciting life. Instead he opens up a sense of curiosity and wonder at the already magical world we live in right now.
