Overview

In Olive's third adventure in the New York Times bestselling Books of Elsewhere series, what lurks below the house could be as dangerous as what's hidden inside. . .

Some terrifying things have happened to Olive in the old stone house, but none as scary as starting junior high. Or so she thinks. When she plummets through a hole in her backyard, though, Olive realizes two things that may change her mind: First, the wicked Annabelle McMartin is back. Second, there's a secret below-ground that unlocks not one but two of Elsewhere's biggest, most powerful, most dangerous forces yet. But with the house's magical cats acting suspicious, her best friend threatening to move away, and her ally Morton starting to rebel, Olive isn't sure where to turn. Will she figure the mystery out in time? Or will she be lured into Elsewhere . . . and trapped there for good?

A must-read fantasy series for fans of Pseudonymous Bosch, Coraline, and Septimus Heap.

Meet the Author

A two-time Pushcart nominee for poetry, Jacqueline West (www.jacquelinewest.com) came to writing by way of opera (she studied vocal performance) and acting (she worked as an actress at a dinner theatre while earning her degree). Looking back on it, it's hard for Jacqueline to believe she ever wanted to be an opera singer, but singing, acting, and writing have one thing in common, she says: "They're all about telling a story, about getting inside the mind of someone other than yourself." The Books of Elsewhere were inspired by a strange old house in Jacqueline's home town—three floors, cracking paint, sagging porches—that was owned by a professor who created all sorts of odd contraptions. Like lots of kids who live mostly in their imaginations, Jacqueline was obsessed with all things mysterious, creepy, and darkly funny, and with stories where magic intersects with everyday life. She was enthralled by Roald Dahl, Lewis Carroll, John Bellairs, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh, Calvin and Hobbes, Bunnicula, etc. Jacqueline lives with her husband and their dog, Brom Bones (of Sleepy Hollow fame).

    I WANT IT A TON

    TRACY LA FRALE was not like you. You probly do the things you do every day with no chance of dying. Unless you count dying of boredom when you go to school. She was like you up intil the year she turned 11. Then things started to happen.
    One of the counsulers at a overnight camp heard her murmer a word twenty feat away and everyone else if you asked them about him would begin to ask who he was. Another time when she went camping a bobcat went up to her and said hello. But then in the summer she looked at a cat and wondered what itd be like to one she was one . After relizeing she was a cat she thought of a bird and became a bird suddenly she wasnt in her bachyard anymore. She was in a place with others with diferent powers... and monsters trying to kill

    Do you like that? Im ten and I made that up on my own in a minute like a discriptoin of a book
