The Books of Elsewhere

by Jacqueline West

This is a great series about a girl named Olive who moves into a strange old house with her parents on Linden Street. She thinks she finally has a home to herself instead of moving around all the time, but she's wrong. The house is keeping secrets. Paintings come to life and you can step inside them with special spectacles. AND three cats came with the house, the most peculiar cats. Why is the house so strange and secretive? Why are there magical paintings you can step inside to? And what are the three cats not telling Olive? Read to find out more. So far there are four books, going on five. I highly recommend this to lovers of fantasy and cats.
