Amulet, by Kazu Kibuishi (1978-)
Amulet Book 1 is about a girl Emily from the modern world going into another world with magic and weird creatures. In book one we learn about what has recently happened in her past and she enters into the world with her mum and brother. When they first arrive at her maternal grandfather’s home, the next day they do a big clean. When Emily was going through one particular room she found a some odd things and called for her mum. Her mum said to her that her maternal grandfather named Silas was an inventor. Emily discovers an Amulet and puts it on. This is the beginning of one of her great adventures.
My favourite bit about the book is the start, with Emily beginning her adventure.
I recommend this book to people that like adventure, comics and fantasy.
