The story is very engaging. 3 friends find a way to access secret, magical stairs in Eric Hinkle's basement, which lead them to another world. The story line is very adventurous, and I like that the villain is so classically evil, b ...more

Joe loves these, too. Unfortunately he wants to read them all out of order, which I do not suggest.
Cute adventure story for 2nd or 3rd grade level readers.
