The Secrets of Droon: Volume 1 - by Tony Abbott
What if you found a door under your basement stairs that opened to another world, where flying pillow people battled magic bad guys? Sure, it would be weird, but that's what happened to the main characters in this first book in The Secrets of Droon series, by Tony Abbot. The three main characters (children named Eric, Julie, and Neal), experience the first of many adventures into the mysterious land of Droon, where they become an important part of that world's quest for freedom from evil dudes. This is a great series for readers who have outgrown the Magic Tree House books, and who like books similar to the Time Warp Trio. The books are pretty short, and there are a ton of them in the series.
