(From the publisher):
Kate and her brother Matt are growing up in the big city, and life isn't always easy. They find refuge in the world of Abadazad — a series of books written over 100 years ago by classic author Franklin O. Barrie.
Kate and Matt spend hours reading the Abadazad books, and know every character. One day, Kate takes Matt to the fun fair. He steps onto a carousel, goes around once, twice — and then disappears.
Though Kate and her mother search for Matt for years, they never find him. Finally, Kate tells her mother they must give up looking — but on that very day, Kate meets an old lady, Martha, who also loves the Abadazad books, and seems to know more about them than anyone. Martha tells her that Abadazad is a real place, but Kate doesn't believe her — until a mysterious blue globe arrives at Kate's door, and Kate sees her brother trapped inside it.
Now Kate knows what she has to do: she must go into the real Abadazad and find her lost brother, no matter what dangers it might hold.
