Leave a comment

Fans of adventure and mystery of The Magic Tree House series are sure to love The Sixty-Eight Rooms by Marianne Malone. This first installment, based on the author’s love of the Thorne Miniature Rooms in the Art Institute of Chicago, is enthralling in its mystery. The story focuses on Ruthie and Jack, best friends who visit the Art Institute on a school field trip and discover that the rooms are more magical than they could ever have imagined. After finding a key that allows wonders beyond belief, they are able to enter these tiny rooms themselves. In each that they visit, they come closer to unlocking the secret of the magic behind these worlds. How does the magic allow them to shrink down to enter these dollhouse rooms? How are there worlds beyond each? Will life ever be the same for Ruthie and Jack? The wonder will pull you in as well while you accompany them on their journey of discovery.
