N D Wilson - 100 Cupboards - Unb
Read by: Russell Horton
Twelve-year-old Henry York is going to sleep one night when he hears a
bump on the attic wall above his head. It's an unfamiliar house–Henry
is staying with his aunt, uncle, and three cousins–so he tries to ignore
it. But the next night he wakes up with bits of plaster in his hair.
Two knobs have broken through the wall, and one of them is slowly
turning... .Henry scrapes the plaster off the wall and discovers
doors–ninety-nine 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 strolling back and forth! Henry and his cousin
Henrietta soon understand that these are not just cupboards. They are,
in fact, 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 own inimitable style.
