This is book number 1 in the Zoone series.
Laura's April 2019 pick, 2 of 2
The first book in a trilogy (I can hardly wait to read the second), The Secret of Zoone will have you laughing, crying, and yelling at the main character for being oblivious, all within the first few chapters. It's a delightfully written tale of determined heroism mixed with awkward coming of age, and personally I think everyone everywhere should read it. This book contains some of the most stalwart friends I've met in fiction, as well as mentors that will have you taking a good hard look at your own life. Oh, there's also a talking blue tiger, excuse me, skyger, with wings and a penchant for eating entirely too many waffles in one sitting.
Welcome to Zoone: crossroads of the multiverse. In this inventive fantasy, fans of Diana Wynne Jones and Lisa McMann will step through an enchanted doorway and into a world filled with infinite portals to new—and sometimes perilous—lands.
When a bright blue winged tiger appears on his aunt’s sofa, Ozzie can tell he’s in for an adventure. He’s thrilled to follow Tug—a skyger—through a secret door in the basement and into Zoone, the bustling Grand Central Station of the universe, where a thousand doors act as portals to strange and wonderful worlds.
But some doors also hide dangers—and when the portal back to Earth explodes behind him, Ozzie gets more adventure than he bargained for. In a station full of wizards, creepy-crawlies, and the occasional cursed princess, Ozzie has to find a way to repair his door… and possibly save the multiverse in the process.
Brimming with colorful characters, magical mayhem, and endless adventure, this new tween series has a doorway for every reader—just be sure to close the door behind you!
