This is the first book of a 5-part series from the library, and I thought it was cute. It's about 2 kids whose mom is swallowed by a monster, and they have to save her. At the same time, there's an elf who wants the kids to get rid of his father, the Elf King, who's making everything horrible. They are teamed up with great-grandpa's inventions of life-breathing toys.

I have re-read it so many times and I just can't seem to get enough of the wonderful tale of Emily Hayes and her friends!

PSA: Book 6 is scheduled to be released either later in January or next September due to Kibuishi's sickness and because he spent a long time working on the new Harry Potter covers.

Amulet: Book 1, The Stonekeeper is the first book in a graphic novel series that so far includes 5 books, with a at least one more that will be released. Two years after Emily and Navin’s father was killed in a car crash, they move to a mansion that used to belong to their great-grandfather, Silas Charon. A door in their basement leads to an alternate version of earth, called Alledia. Emily, now a “stonekeeper” can control a magical amulet that used to belong to Silas. In Alledia, they meet several robots created by Silas, including Miskit, who looks like a pink rabbit, and Cogsley, who looks more like a normal robot. Book 1 serves mainly as an origin story and introduction, and most elements of the main plot do not come in until books 2 and 3. One of the influences for Amulet were the Star Wars movies, and it seems to have had some steampunk influences. Amulet is mainly meant for kids around the ages of 9-12, but it has an interesting storyline. I would reccomend the Amulet series to fans of Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Bone
