    Twelve-year-old Henry York wakes up one night to find bits of plaster in his hair. Two knobs have broken through the wall above his bed and one of them is slowly turning. Henry scrapes the plaster off the wall and discovers cupboards of all different sizes and shapes. Through one he can hear the sound of falling rain. Through another he sees a glowing room with a man pacing back and forth! Henry soon understands that these are not just cupboards, but portals to other worlds.

    Adrianne says: "This one's a keeper!"
    "Great story and narrator!"

    Would you listen to 100 Cupboards again? Why?

    Yes! It has appealed to my boys sense of adventure.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is very reminiscent of C.S. Lewis' The Magicians Nephew which is a pleasant surprise. It opened up the problem of what happens when evil is unleashed into a world even for the best of reasons.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the scene where when someone is in the cupboard they can see a ballroom full of people and the explanation is that the wood remembers.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Adventure awaits


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely one to be relistened to over and over to glean the nuances missed during the first run through.
