Overview

With no way into the house's magical paintings, and its three guardian cats reluctant to help, Olive's friend Morton is still trapped inside Elsewhere. So when Rutherford, the new oddball kid next door, mentions a grimoire - a spellbook - Olive feels a breathless tug of excitement. If she can find the McMartins' spellbook, maybe she can help Morton escape Elsewhere for good. Unless, that is, the book finds Olive first.

The house isn't the only one keeping secrets anymore. Mystery, magic, corruption, and betrayal abound (plus just enough laughs to take the edge off). You'll never guess what happens next in this thrilling, chilling second volume in the critically acclaimed series.

This was wonderful! This second installment in the Books of Elsewhere series is yet another great mix of humor, insight, and suspense from Jacqueline West. Once I hit Chapter 10, I honestly could not put the book down again until I had finished it. It will be difficult to wait until the summer of 2012 to find out what happens in book #3!

A few weeks ago eleven year old Olive Dunwoody and her absent minded mathematician parents moved into the creepy Victorian mansion of the late McMartin. Soon afterward, Olive managed to break the magic eyeglass frames of Aldous McMartin and bury the evil painting of Annabelle McMartin. However, she has yet to rescue her friend Morton from his being a painting instead of a person. The tweener has not given up so accompanied by the three cats (Harvey, Horatio and Leopold) she diligently seeks clue to liberate Morton. Also joining Olive and her felines is the neighbor's boy Rutherford Dewey as she searches for the McMartin Book of Spells. The second Books of Elsewhere is a tense thriller in which evil waits in The Shadows to pounce on the innocent. Olive is a great tweener as she holds the haunted mansion story line together with the capable assistance of the three feisty felines. Middle school readers will enjoy accompanying Olive and her retinue as they search for the tome that will free her friend while the malevolent mysterious McMartin brood try to prevent her.

The Elsewhere series is what I recomend for ages 7 to 17. If you like action and mystery books this is the one for you.

I have only heard of the first and second book but i know there great. If you were thinking of getting this book and have not read the first book look up the books of elswhere the shadows because thats the first book. If you are the kind of person who likes suspence and adventure you will love these books,trust me.

We just started this one (my 9year old daughter and I) and we are already captivated just as we were with first book in the series, Shadows. She made an amazing book report project on Shadows, and I am sure she will do one on Spellbound as well. I LOVE THAT SHE IS EXCITED TO READ NOW!
