The Land of Neverendings

This book had me from page 1! The book is set in modern day in a normal town, but also in the make believe world 'Smockeroon.'The main protagonist is Emily and there are also her friends Martha and Maze.
As the story opens Emily's sister, Holly has died of a violent seizure. When Holly was alive Emily loved to tell her stories about her favourite teddy, Bluey, who lives in Smockeroon.
Emily aches over the loss of Holly and Bluey and Smockeroon. She dreams that animals form Smockeroon come to visit her. There is a doorway from Smockeroon to earth, which is termed 'Hard World. 'This door has been broken. Then a black toad of despair forces its way into the imaginary world spreading gloom. Emily and her friends have to fix the broken door before it is too late.
I loved this book so much, I could not put it down, because it was so beguiling. It covers everything an amazing book needs so I give it 5 stars.
