28. Amulet: The Stonekeeper (Book One) by Kazu Kibuishi

            This J-level graphic novel is the first of three volumes.  Emily, Navin, and their mother move into an old family house after the death of their father.  The house is filthy and also a bit creepy.  Emily finds a workshop of sorts with an amulet hidden in a lectern.  Once she discovers the amulet things begin to get strange.  She thinks the amulet is talking to her and then her mother is stolen and taken into a strange world through the basement stairway.  Emily and Navin must find a way to save their mother while navigating in this strange new land.  Thankfully, help is at hand in the form of great-grandfather.  Follow Emily and Navin through their strange adventures in this volume and look forward to future installments where their mother’s fate will be decided.
