The Explorers: The Door in the Alley

This book begins with a regular boy named Sebastian walking home from school. Then the friend he is walking with convinces him to go down a dark alley where they find a mysterious door. Actually, it’s not like it’s hidden or anything, it’s just a regular door in the alley. But it opens to a building called The Explorers’ Society. Inside, there are hidden elevators, a glass platform in a tree with a tea party set up on top, and a very plain, very ordinary wooden box.

I like this book because it’s very action-packed and funny. One of my favorite funny parts is where a pig in a teeny hat plays keep-away, keeping a scrub brush from Sebastian. I also like how there’s a mystery, but it doesn’t start until you are a third of the way into the book. I didn’t know it was going to be a mystery, and I was surprised. If it bothers you that there are two gory descriptions (a man’s jaw wired shut and a melted face) then maybe skip those parts. I also like how the cover shows the globe with different things that happen throughout the story. This is the first book in a new series, and I can’t wait to read the next one. It ends in a cliff-hanger, right when things are getting really exciting.
