Read full description of the books:
What a disappointment!! I mean, huge letdown. This book started out so promisingly, even though it is strongly resonant of a much-older story about a nurse who looks after children on the "incurable ward" in a hospital (Ruth Sawyer's The Primrose Ring)...but it all came to nothing. I began to wonder if part of the book was missing!! It's all build-up for a crisis point that never comes--the story is cut off when the "real action" might be going to happen; the encounter with people in this mysterious "ideal world" is never shown. Nothing is resolved and the reader is left hanging.
I wonder if I'll bother with any more of Key's works. If he's fond of hiding bricks under hats like this, I'll give him a miss.

Read information about the authorAn American science fiction writer, most of whose books were aimed at a juvenile audience. He became a nationally known illustrator before he became an author. After he began writing novels for young people, he moved his family to the North Carolina mountains, and most of his books include that wild and rugged landscape.
His novel Escape to Witch Mountain was made into a popular film in 1975 and again in 1995. His novel The Incredible Tide became a popular anime series, Future Boy Conan.
He is known for his portrayals of alien but human-like people who have psychic powers and a close communion with nature, and who can speak with animals. In The Strange White Doves, he professed his belief that animals are conscious and aware, and have subtle ways of communicating, perhaps via telepathy.
The protagonists of Key's books are often ostracized, feared, or persecuted due to their abilities or alien origin, and Key uses this as a clear metaphor for racism and other prejudice. In several of the books (most notably "The Case of the Vanishing Boy,") Key portrays some sort of communal withdrawing from society with a group of like-minded individuals. - Wikipedia -
