This is a groundbreaking mix of fiction and full-colour comic strip that follows a headstrong girl's journey into the bizarre fictional world of Abadazad to rescue her younger brother. In "Queen Ija's Promise", Kate's little brother, Matt, goes missing at a fun fair and five years later she is still coming to terms with it; failing her classes and fighting with her mum. Then an odd, elderly neighbout tells Kate that the world of Abadazad, a fictional fantasy realm that featured in Matt's favourite stories, is real, and that Matt's been abducted into this wonderland. Kate is sceptical, but when the old lady dies and Kate receives a glowing blue orb in a package, she is carried to Abadazad, a place "where sorrow has no home - where time has no meaning - where joy lives forever!" But why didn't the author of "Abadazad" mention the Shellopers' bad breath? Or Queen Ija's blue skin ?And how is she going to defeat someone as crazed and evil as Lanky Man?
