The bestselling and highly acclaimed 100 Cupboards series continues with its action-packed second book, Dandelion Fire. Perfect for readers who love Percy Jackson, the Unwanteds, and Beyonders!
Henry York never dreamed his time in Kansas would open a door to adventure—much less a hundred doors. But a visit to his aunt and uncle’s farm took an amazing turn when cupboard doors, hidden behind Henry’s bedroom wall, revealed themselves to be portals to other worlds. Now, with his time at the farm drawing to a close, Henry makes a bold decision—he must go through the cupboards to find the truth about where he’s from and who his parents are. Following that trail will take him from one world to another, and ultimately into direct conflict with the evil of Endor.

Thank you canon+ and N.D. Wilson for reviving imagination in my wife and I and for nurturing it in my children!
I especially enjoyed this second installment of the 100 cupboards series as it fills in so many details and answers questions from the first book. It was a very enjoyable read and kept me on the edge of my seat till the end. I love the Biblical worldview that is woven into the story under the surface: it is not a Christian book by mere lip service or religious verbiage, but by real substance, deep themes and ennobling truth. Now, of course, I have to read the third book!
I'm really enjoying the 100 Cupboards so far! Loved the Christian themes and picture of Christ in this book.
Great fun! A young man stepping into his powers and learning who he is. Good story for the family.
Excellent book! Wilson cleverly paints a world that both invites the reader into wonder and danger. This story fed my soul.
