Explorer: The Hidden Doors: 01/03/15
Explorer: The Hidden Doors by Kazu Kibuishi is the third graphic novel anthology in the series. The other two are The Mystery Boxes and The Lost Islands. This one contains seven short comic adventures based on the theme of a hidden door.
The Hidden Doors contains works by Kazu Kibuishi (of the Amulet series), Jen Wang (Koko Be Good), Faith Erin Hicks (Zombies Calling), Doug Holgate (Zack Proton) and others.
My favorite of the set is the one done by Kibuishi. It involves a chase through a series of doors, a la the climax in Monsters Inc. The nature of these doors though is something very different and very personal.
My next favorite is a treehouse in a park that gives children the opportunity to change themselves as many times as they want. The fun here is just how many of kids have discovered this secret place without letting on that they know.
