A sweeping epic series following Emily and Navin as they try to rescue their mother from a dangerous realm underneath their grandmother's house. Good for fans of Neil Gaiman's Coraline and C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia.

Wasn't expecting to like this, but I did! I got sucked in right from the beginning and have requested the rest in the series. Great all-ages graphic novel.

Just gotten this book for my birthday from a friend and its amazing Kazu Kibuishi is a mastermind when it comes to storytelling. I have read this series when I was 9 or 10 but I still remember the second book GG Kazu!

First I have to say for an "all ages" graphic novel this one is very good. The beginning was rather cliché for me, but after they get past the opening things jump right into adventure mode. The characters are fun and interesting, especially all of her grandfather's assistants, who I can't wait to see more of. The story is fun and well done. I can't wait to dig into volume 2 to figure out what crazy adventures await in this crazy new world they have discovered.

I am an 8.5 years old boy and I want to recommend Amulet 1. This is an awesome book. I couldn't stop reading it. I really think you should read it!!!

Everything changes when Emily and Navin's father dies in a tragic car accident. The siblings and their mother move to their grandfather's house, one missing and thought to be dead for many years. The house, it turns out, has its own secrets and stories to tell. Emily and her brother journey into a new world in an effort to save their mother and keep their family together. A great start to a fantasy series that kept me hooked! The drawings are beautiful and imaginative -- the author/illustrator really draws you into this strange world.
