Behind the Bookcase

Mark Steensland

Sarah and her family are getting Grandma’s house ready to sell. While packing boxes Sarah discovers an unfinished letter from Grandma that says “strange things are happening behind the bookcase.” A black tunnel behind the bookcase is a portal to the land of Scotopia where Balthazat the cat rules. Sarah finds herself battling the evil cat as he tries to unleash sleeping souls locked in the house. Many inventive characters inhabit this new land- an enormous hand on legs called Lefty, a giant bat with a boy’s face. Travel with Sarah to this gothic land of mysterious creatures. Ages 9-11
