Description

A tender and fantastical adventure story perfect for fans of Coraline. After Cecelia DahlA??s little brother, Celadon, dies tragically, his soul goes where all souls go: the Land of YesterdayA??and Cecelia is left behind in a fractured world without him. Her beloved houseA??s spirit is crumbling beyond repair, her father is imprisoned by sorrow, and worst of all, her grief-stricken mother abandons the land of the living to follow Celadon into Yesterday. ItA??s up to Cecelia to put her family back together, even if that means venturing into the dark and forbidden Land of Yesterday on her own. But as Cecilia braves a hot-air balloon commanded by two gnomes, a sea of daisies, and the Planet of Nightmares, itA??s clear that even if she finds her family, she might not be able to save them. And if sheA??s not careful, she might just become a lost soul herself, trapped forever in Yesterday.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Brittany Pressley does her best to bring drama to this otherworldly steampunk story about a tenacious girl living on another planet in a house with its own angry spirit. After Cecelia's little brother, Celadon, dies tragically, his soul goes to the Land of Yesterday. Cecelia's mother is so distraught that she follows him there, so Cecelia, feeling responsible for his death, ventures into that dark and forbidden land to bring them back. Pressley gives voices to a variety of whimsical characters including the barking honks of people with wordfart syndrome, the evil moans of the house Widdendream, and the babyish voice of Cecelia herself as she struggles to succeed in her magical quest.
