About the Author:

Clive Barker is the best-selling author of eighteen books, including his first book for children, The Thief of Always. He is also an acclaimed artist, film producer, and director. For four years Mr, Barker has been working on a vast array of paintings to illuminate the text of The Books Of Abarat, over one hundred of which can be found within this first volume.

Mr. Barker lives in California with his partner, the photographer David Armstrong, and their daughter, Nicole. They share their house with four dogs, five goldfish, a parrot, fifteen rats, innumerable wild geckoes, a cockatiel, and a parrot called Malingo.

From AudioFile:

Harvey, a little boy, is bored on a rainy day. A stranger with an unusually large grin appears and leads him to a house where he can have and do whatever he wants. From here the story takes a leap from this predictable storyline to a compelling eeriness. Initially, Glover's reading is as dimensionless as the story's beginning. As the story becomes creepier, Glover's voice becomes appropriately unsettling. He gives uncanny reality to the hosts of the house by delivering their sense of humor as well. Though it is even disturbing to adults, the tale never becomes graphically violent and is suitable for children. E.S.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
