The Chestnut King
The thrilling conclusion to the bestselling 100 Cupboards series!
9+ lovers of a good fantasy in the tradition of CS Lewis and Diana Wynne Jones
The third and final book in the acclaimed trilogy that began with 100 Cupboards
A writer who knows what kids want to read and gives it to them
A true fantasy that takes a modern boy through the Chestertonian discovery that the world really is a mad, mad place (and beyond).
When Henry York found ninety-nine cupboards hidden behind his bedroom wall, he never dreamed they were doors to entirely new worlds! Unfortunately, Henry's discovery freed an ancient, undying witch, whose hunger for power could destroy every world connected to the cupboards - and every person whom Henry loves. Henry must seek out the legendary Chestnut King for help. Everything has a price, however, and the Chestnut King's desire may be as dangerous as the witch herself.
N. D. Wilson concludes a remarkable, worlds-spanning journey that began with one boy and one hundred avenues to adventure.
