Publisher’s Synopsis (Random House Books for Young Readers )

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.

 

Publisher’s Synopsis (Dastan Books)

Henry York, dua belas tahun, hanya ingin hidup normal. Tapi hidupnya malah penuh kejutan setelah ia tinggal di kediaman paman dan bibinya di Kansas. Karena tidak ada kamar kosong yang tersedia, Henry terpaksa tidur di loteng. Di sana ia menemukan 99 pintu lemari dalam berbagai bentuk, warna, dan ukuran yang disembunyikan di balik dinding kamarnya.

Sejak menemukan pintu lemari tersebut, kejadian-kejadian aneh mulai menghampiri. Henry dilukai oleh makhluk dari balik pintu lemari yang terhubung dengan dunia bernama Endor. Darahnya telah membangunkan Nimiane, sang ratu penyihir yang terkurung di kegelapan. Keadaan bertambah buruk saat Henrietta, sepupu Henry, menghilang ke Fitzfaeren melalui pintu keseratus yang ada di kamar kakek mereka. Fitzfaeren adalah salah satu negeri yang telah dihancurkan oleh Anjing-Penyihir pengikut Nimiane.

Bagaimana Henry dapat menyelamatkan Henrietta? Apa yang harus dilakukannya untuk menghadapi Anjing-Penyihir? Dan bagaimana caranya untuk kembali? Henry harus berpacu dengan waktu sebelum semakin banyak korban yang berjatuhan…

 

My Review

I bought this book because its publisher give a discon on it.

It is a good book actually, but it have something wrong i think.

I don’t know, maybe just my head had a “lola” syndrom when i was reading it.
