Bought as a gift for my nine-year-old niece. I skimmed through it before wrapping it, and it seems both fun and meaningful, dealing with fantasy and grief. First in a series, i'll be getting the rest for my niece.

By E. A. Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 25 Aug. 2011
Format: Paperback
In fantasy stories, weird old houses always have something secret hidden in them.

And while "The Stonekeeper" starts with the heroine's family arriving at their new home, it doesn't take long for Kazu Kibiushi to bring us into the alternate world of Alledia -- I find the pink bunnies to be a bit distracting, but the grotesque monsters, menacing elves and eerie houses make up for it.

After her father's death, Emily accompanies her mother and brother Navin to a run-down family house -- but as they clean up and try to make it habitable, Emily finds a glowing stone amulet. And that night, Emily's mother is attacked and eaten alive by a tentacled monster, and when Navin and Emily chase it to get her back, they end up in a strange new world.

Even worse, a glowy-eyed elf is following the two children, until they are rescued by a representative of their great-grandfather, who lives in the forest with a gang of little robots. It turns out that Emily's stone amulet has the power to save the entire world of Alledia... and possibly to save her mother as well.

"The Stonekeeper (Amulet, Book 1)" reminds me a lot of Jeff Smith's Bone -- a dramatic, imaginative fantasy graphic novel that is slightly softened by some goofy-looking characters (one of the robots looks like a pink bunny). And it doesn't take long for Kazu Kibuishi to leap headfirst into fast-paced action and little touches of horror.

Actually, his entire approach is very original -- his elves aren't pretty Tolkienesque creatures, but sharp-toothed, glowy-eyed and pallid, and the forests and tunnels are full of tentacled horrors. Kibuishi paints the story in misty blue and gray tones, and adds in some whimsical touches (the floating mushrooms) to remind us that we're in another world.

After the tragic death of their father, Emily and her brother, Navin, move with their mother to a new town to start a brand new life. Their new house is very old and has been in their family for years. Emily is very interested by this old house, particularly one room upstairs in which she finds a beautiful necklace with a very pretty stone in it.

Emily's cool find is soon overshadowed by a very strange first night in the house. After hearing noises in the basement, their mother is kidnapped by a strange creature.

Emily and Navin, with the help of Emily's stone necklace, now have to find their mother and figure out what is going on in this strange new town.

THE STONEKEEPER, the first in the AMULET series, is a quick yet enjoyable read, set up in graphic novel form. The main characters are easy to relate to, and the supporting characters are serious but amusing at the same time. The storyline is interesting and leaves you wanting to know more.

Kids will love seeing people their own age as strong and independent main characters. Emily and Navin are definitely role model material.

By TeensReadToo TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 15 April 2010
Format: Paperback
Navin and Emily are back with all their old friends, and some new ones, for another adventure in the AMULET series.

Picking up where we last left our heroes, we find them inside their great-grandfather's traveling house searching for an antidote for their poisoned mother. When they reach the city of Kanal is when things start to look hopeful. That is until the elf prince and his army show up.

The elf prince is determined to steal Emily's amulet and use its power. Now, Emily must learn to accept her role as a stonekeeper and save the day.

This graphic novel is a very exciting sequel. Emily really comes out of her shell in this book and becomes a strong character.

Boys and girls alike will love seeing Emily and Navin stand up for themselves and watching Emily take charge of the amulet's powers. I can't wait to see what's next for Emily and her family. Hopefully, we'll see the next volume in the series soon!

Format: Paperback
Abandoning the moribund superhero trappings (wrongly) associated with the medium, Kazu Kibuishi delivers a classic fantasy tale in comics form. While it has all the superficial trappings of a children's story, there's much for all ages to enjoy here; the youngsters will love the imaginative world and its colourful inhabitants, while grown-ups of all ages will respond to the complex emotions at the heart of the story, and the interesting moral questions raised by the Amulet itself.

Kibuishi's storytelling is strong, although there are a couple of minor slip-ups here and there (page fifteen's clumsy panel layout, for example), and the visuals are wonderful; the seemingly simplistic figures show a wealth of personality and emotion, and the fantasy world is vivid and beautifully realised.

This first chapter of the story is self-enclosed enough that it can be read in isolation, but Kibuishi weaves in plenty of interesting ongoing threads, and I for one will be there to pick up volume two and see how the story continues. A good, strong start.
