Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

Graphic novel star Kazu Kibuishi creates a world of terrible, man-eating demons, a mechanical rabbit, a giant robot—and two ordinary children on a life-or-death mission.

After the tragic death of their father, Emily and Navin move with their mother to the home of her deceased great-grandfather, but the strange house proves to be dangerous. Before long, a sinister creature lures the kids’ mom through a door in the basement. Em and Navin, desperate not to lose her, follow her into an underground world inhabited by demons, robots, and talking animals.

Eventually, they enlist the help of a small mechanical rabbit named Miskit. Together with Miskit, they face the most terrifying monster of all, and Em finally has the chance to save someone she loves.

Mana recenzija (pārdomas)/My (thoughts) review

Divus gadus pēc traģiskas tēva nāves autoavārijā, Emīlija kopā ar mazo brāli Navinu un māti Kārenu no lielpilsētas finansiālu apsvērumu dēļ pārvācas uz mazāku pilsēteli vien ar 28 000 iedzīvotāju, un ievācas ģimenei piederošā un drusku nolaistā mājā. Māja tomēr nav nekāda parastā un tai ir arī savi noslēpumi, no kuriem viens saistās ar vecvectēvu.

Kontrole pār notikumiem zūd brīdī, kad kāds radījums nolaupa Kārenu, un Emīlija un Navins piespiedu kārtā kļūst par varoņiem ne tikai, lai izglābtu māti, bet iespējams arī kaut kam nopietnākam pēcāk, vismaz Emīlija noteikti.

Centienos izglābt māti, Emīlija un Navins atklāj brīnumainu, paralēlu pasauli, kur par varu cīnās dažādi spēki. Par laimi, abi savos piedzīvojumos viņi nav vieni, jo līdzās stājas vecvectēva radītie roboti. Ilustrācijas kopā ar sižetu ir vienkārši super! Negribas likt pilnībā maksimālu vērtējumu, jo gan jau būs vēl labāk. : )

***************************************

Two years after the tragic death of their father Emily and Navin together with their mother Karen  because of financial reasons move from a big city to a smaller one with just 28 000 citizens, and move into an old and a bit neglected house that belongs to the family. The house however isn’t just any ordinary house; it has its own secrets and mysteries from which one is connected to their great-grandfather.

The control over the events are lost after a some kind of creature kidnaps Karen, and Emily and Navin are forced to become heroes not just to save their mother but possibly also for something much more serious. At least for Emily.

In their effort to rescue their mother, Emily and Navin discover wonderful parallel world in which many sides struggle for power. Luckily in their adventures Emily and Navin aren’t alone because they have help from robots that their great-grandfather built. The art together with the story line are just amazing! I don’t want to give full max rating only because it probably will get better. : )
