100 Cupboards (100 Cupboards, #1)

100 Cupboards  (100 Cupboards, #1)100 Cupboards by N.D. Wilson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book in what I think will be an interesting series for middle graders.  Henry comes to live with his aunt and uncle and 3 cousins who seem very strange.  In his room in the attic he uncovers a whole wall full of small doors.  The entire wall is covered in plaster, but he and the middle girl manage to uncover it.  Once some of the drawers are opened, the pair of kids learn that they can go through the drawer and into another world.

There is more to the mystery in the house.  At the end of the corridor on the second floor there is a large room which is locked and no one has the key.  One night Henry wakes up and sees an unusual looking old man whom no one wants to talk about.  They try to say that it is Grandfather's room, but he is supposed to be gone away.  How can he be getting in and out of the room when there is no key?
