Arthur Penhaligon is supposed to die at a young age, but is saved by a key that is shaped like the minute hand of a clock. The key causes bizarre creatures to come from another realm, bringing with them a plague. A man named Mister Monday will stop at nothing to get the key back. Arthur goes to a mysterious house that only he can see, so that he can learn the truth about himself and the key.
Reviews & Summaries
When he meets Mister Monday, however, Arthur is essentially turned into a boy version of Lewis Carroll's Alice, and he travels into the topsy-turvy world of the House and its Kingdoms.
Throughout the series, each book of which is named after a character that Arthur must defeat for their parts of a magical Will, Arthur becomes more powerful, gains more friends, and finds himself longing for the normal world from which he came.
This series is great for anyone who loves Percy Jackson or Harry Potter.
