Samantha (samanthan) | 30 comments This is a thick children's/YA fantasy novel. Around 500+ pages. Big hardcover. The cover is black with a door slightly ajar on it with an orange glow coming from behind it. There is an ouroboros (snake or dragon eating its tail) on the cover. It's a fantasy story about a child (I think a girl) traveling to another world, probably through the door on the cover. It's translated into English from a European language, I think either Dutch or Danish. I believe it came out between the mid-90s to mid-2000s. I read it around 2006.

Some of the there are a lot of different bookcovers for that book. Some have an ouroboros on them and some don't. Translated to english from german.

It's not The Neverending Story. I have seen the movie version but never read the book. Thank you for the suggestion!

Samantha, do any titles on the Doors, Portals, Gates list look familiar? (Many of the books probably have multiple cover images.)
