The Stonekeeper

Amulet #1, by Kazu Kibuishi

Graphic novel star Kazu Kibuishi creates a world of terrible, man-eating demons, a mechanical rabbit, a talking fox, a giant robot—and two ordinary children on a mission.

After the tragic death of their father, Emily and Navin move with their mother to the home of her deceased great-grandfather, but the strange house proves to be dangerous. Before long, a sinister creature lures the kids’ mom through a door in the basement. Em and Navin, desperate not to lose her, follow her into an underground world inhabited by demons, robots, and talking animals.
Eventually, they enlist the help of a small mechanical rabbit named Miskit. Together with Miskit, they face the most terrifying monster of all, and Em finally has the chance to save someone she loves.

BookDragon says: This is a great book series for boys and girls to get them interested in reading. Gorgeous illustrations and deep in plot. Don’t let the cute bunny fool you. This is not your typical feel-good anime world, there’s definitely a lot of creepy-crawly weirdness in here — and let us tell you, we shared it with our kids and they LOVED it! Perfectly executed, highly recommend.
