Publisher Description

The Forbidden Library kicks off an action-packed  fantasy series with classic appeal, a resourceful heroine, a host of magical creatures, and no shortage of narrow escapes--perfect for fans of Story ThievesCoraline, Inkheart, and Harry Potter

Alice always thought fairy tales had happy endings. That--along with everything else--changed the day she met her first fairy

When Alice's father goes down in a shipwreck, she is sent to live with her uncle Geryon--an uncle she's never heard of and knows nothing about. He lives in an enormous manor with a massive library that is off-limits to Alice. But then she meets a talking cat. And even for a rule-follower, when a talking cat sneaks you into a forbidden library and introduces you to an arrogant boy who dares you to open a book, it's hard to resist. Especially if you're a reader to begin with. Soon Alice finds herself INSIDE the book, and the only way out is to defeat the creature imprisoned within.

It seems her uncle is more than he says he is. But then so is Alice.

LITERAL ADDICTION’s Review of The Forbidden Library

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Scholastic Siren - Sara:

If I were ten, this would have been a 5 skull book for sure! Buy this for all your middle-grade readers. It has a few scary scenes, but I would even read this to littles. It is the first book in a series.

It is a fun story about a girl named Alice who finds out magic is real. "Alice always thought fairy tales had happy endings. That--along with everything else--changed the day she met her first fairy." The fairy in question is threatening her father, who disappears shortly after. Alice must go live with her Uncle, who she's never met. She has the run of the house but is told to stay out of the library. Sure, that's going to happen....
