I like the book because it is interesting and a little freaky. It is a different kind of book because it has a lot of creatures that can hurt Emily and Navin. I like the way that they try to outwit the monsters.
My favorite part of the book was when Emily found the amulet because when she put it on it glowed. The amulet helps them make good choices in finding their mom. Emily is my favorite character. She is courageus because she needs to make many choices. She is curious because after she finds the amulet, she wants to know what to do to save her mom. She caring because she had to take care of Navin besides having to rescue Mom.
This book is a graphic novel. The reason I picked the book is because of the many drawings. Graphic novels are books with lots of pictures, kind of like comic books. I would recommend this book to 4-6 grade boys and girls. It is exciting and has a surprise ending. I think it would interest readers Something is always happening on every page. I think you would want to read it too.
