Janice Clark's The Hall of Doors is a magical way for young readers to learn valuable life lessons. While younger
readers may be able to read the book, the nuances of the messages are best absorbed by readers aged nine and
Moonbeams are magical pathways to a strange fairy land that only special cats and special children may visit.
Each door in the hall of doors opens to an opportunity to learn something new or conquer a different fear. Each
door offers an adventure...some more pleasant than others, but they each give young Samantha an opportunity
Ms. Clark masterfully reaches out to young children in her book and addresses issues such as patience, anger,
forgiveness and fear. There are few illustrations, as befitting a book for the target age group, but they do enhance
My one problem with the book is one instance where the author employed one of my pet peeves about writing.
I abhor the use of periods between words to convey strong emotion, and I think use of that "colloquialism" in
writing for this age group is a mistake given the target audience is still learning how to write correctly.
