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.

100 Cupboards is the first book of a new fantasy adventure, written in the best world-hopping tradition and reinvented in N. D. Wilson’s inimitable style.

    " This series of books is a little like the Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe series. I enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica Thlick | 1/17/2014

Henrietts becomes so interested that she goes through one of them. Henry and her find that all the cupboards are actualy portals to other worlds.This book is very exciting and worth reading. "

    " This is an intriguing concept for a book. I thought that it took a really long time (about 80%ish into the book) to actually begin explaining some of the why things were happening in the book. The beginning of the book was alright, but it wasn't something that I was dying to finish. However the ending was pretty good and I am hoping that the other books in the series are better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 12/23/2013

    " We found the book fairly engaging and liked the characters. It all seemed to end too quickly, leaving us feeling like things were not quite as developed, explained, or resolved as they could have been. But I suppose that's why there were followup books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 12/23/2013

    " Clever premise, but doesn't develop fast enough. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen Thompson | 10/4/2013

    " loved, loved , loved this book such a fun and adventurous story. excuse me while i go to my attic, i thought i saw a small door on the wall... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 8/17/2013

    " This was fabulous. Tons of obscure allusions, enough to compete with That Hideous Strength. There are not many who could combine the rugged style of American prose with Scottish fairy tales. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 7/29/2013

    " Many of the patrons at our recent book fair saw this book on the shelf and wanted to know more, so I bought it and went home to read it and report. I really liked it and thought the pace and the creativity was nicely written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 6/15/2013

    " ok story with a gorgeous book cover "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 4/17/2013

    " Fun little book! Good enough to want to read the next one "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marty | 2/17/2013

    " It was boring. This kid discovers that there are cupboard doors behind the plaster of his bedroom wall. He discovers that the cupboards lead to other alternate worlds. This was one of the books nominated for the Iowa Children's Choice Awards. I suppose kids who like fantasy would like it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia (A Blog about Nothing) | 10/15/2012

    " I think it's more like 3.5 stars. I really enjoyed this book. I will be picking up the rest of the series to find out what happens next. It's so interesting, I felt like the main character's cousin wanting to find out what was behind all those cupboards. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 5/12/2012

    " Loved this fantasy...so much fun! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean Higgins | 4/26/2012

    " This continued my fiction reading with the kids. MRH2 and CKH were a little disturbed near the end, but were totally engaged. I'm still wondering about the propriety of Henry and Henrietta in Henry, KS, but so be it. I think I liked it enough to move ahead in N.D.'s trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffiny | 4/4/2012

    " exciting and imaginative - Ryan and I listened to this one - really enjoyed it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 2/4/2012

    " Just okay...the story concept is so awesome that I expected to enjoy this book much more than I did. Won't be finishing the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie | 11/30/2011

    " I read this in one day and did enjoy the story, but it is kind of scary at times, so I wouldn't recommend it for younger kids. It is very unique and interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josiah Nance | 11/9/2011

    " Taught me to arm myself with a baseball bat if I ever go fistycuffs with a dread queen of a dark kingdom. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Denise | 9/11/2011

    " Loved it! Wouldn't it be great to find adventure wherever you are? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 5/15/2011

    " Well written. Henry is a more developed character in this second book. Looking forward to reading Chestnut King. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Esther | 5/13/2011

    " Found the second book - good, continued the story from the first. But the many characters started to get confusing. Still a good read... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Camille | 4/7/2011

    " Ok,this book is incredebly confusing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maureen | 4/6/2011

    " While I was captivated by the concept of 100 Cupboards, this book took a left turn into wordiness and stretched my imagination too far. I would recommend stopping after 100 Cupboards, it was an intriguing concept that could have been explored in a manner better than this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 3/12/2011

    " Thoroughly riveting and exciting sequel in a very unique fantasy series! Wow! It is pretty intense and there is a bit of swearing, so not for younger kids. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nico | 3/9/2011

    " I was initially afraid N.D. would be too conservative with the scope of the series. He really came through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 2/18/2011

    " Well done fantasy, although my children are looking more forward to the third book than I am. It does not compare (in my opinion) to the Amulet series or Funke's Reckless. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maddie | 2/16/2011

    " not as good as the first
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LJh* | 2/5/2011

    " The Wizard of Oz of its time. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nessa | 2/4/2011

    " This book was so disappointing. The book was all over the place, following multiple stories, each making less sense then the last. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Spence | 2/1/2011

    " I didn't finish it because there was cursing in it. "
