With drawings by the author. Now the dog tried to run away from us, but by this time she had entangled herself, legs and tail, in a grapevine that wound through the thornbush.

With drawings by the author. She lurched, eyes moving wildly, ducking the stones, trying to jerk her body out of the vine, then retching and whining at us piteously, crying for help. What I did was stand there, in a storm of flying stones and jeering laughter, trying to sound reasonable, almost cheerful, with a trill of panic in my voice.

Before my grandmother died, she gave me two books. One was about about President Lincoln and the other was Through the Hidden Door. I glanced at the titles and cover and cast it aside. I rarely judge a book by it's cover, but my grandmother just wanted to get rid of the books, knew I liked to read and gave them to me without taking my personal choices into consideration.

Through the Hidden Door book. Wells starts off the book with a very sad and uncomfortable to read scene that I somehow blocked out of my mind. At first I was confused about why this book had stuck in my head for 25 years. However, as I read I liked Barney more and more. He was just a kid that wanted to be accepted and did really dumb things to make that happen. Barney grows up a lot during the story. Even when I read Through the Hidden Door as a child I wondered why there wasn't a sequel to this book.

I read this book when I was in approximately the 5th or 6th grade (roughly 1990). It had a profound impact on my development as a child. It left an indelible mark on me and my future interests. For years after reading this I wanted to be an archaeologist. To this day I love exploring caves (although usually accompanied by a guide... and lots of light). To this day, I think often of this book and have been dying to read it. The only problem was that I had long since forgotten the title, but not the story and not the lessons. It took me years to find it again. You would think that searching for a book about two boys finding a miniature civilization in a cave would be pretty straightforward but my searches usually resulted in books like City of Ember or other stories of underground cities. I finally found the right one a few months ago and am currently re-reading it and will give my grown up opinion once I have finished it. But the 12 year old me gives it 5 stars. It's one of the rare books that strongly influenced my personality at that stage of development and I can honestly say it helped shape me into the person I am today. It's a story of wonder and discovery, loss and redemption, and I can't recommend it enough.

I read this book when I was a pre-teen, and I loved it. It took me a while to figure out the title, but I wanted to read it again. Good story, great descriptions, and you can picture yourself there.

I read this book when I was a teen! I have thought of it many times over the years, wanting to read it again, but I couldn't remember its name! I have goolged and searced for years, but all I could remember was that they found a hidden city and the main character had a lisp. Tonight I put the search terms in google book and finally, success! Can't wait to read it again!

Before my grandmother died, she gave me two books. One was about about President Lincoln and the other was Through the Hidden Door. I glanced at the titles and cover and cast it aside. I rarely judge a book by it's cover, but my grandmother just wanted to get rid of the books, knew I liked to read and gave them to me without taking my personal choices into consideration.

After a couple years I was cleaning out my closet and found this book. I had perfected my book-choosing method (my bank account needs a break): I read the title, the summary on the back (or inside flap) and the 'About the Author'. Then I read the first page, a random page somewhere in the middle, and finally, the last page. What I read intrigued me enough to read this book.

The beginning is slow-going and I was furious over the abuse Barney suffered from his classmates and even the teacher (who uses hot stones to correct Barney's lisp). And don't even get me started on the Headmaster's dog! However, I muddled through it and stuck around for the real adventure, when Barney forms an alliance (you can't call a kid who leads you around blindfolded a friend, I don't think) with Snowy Cobb. The boys uncover a miniature civilization in a cave and spend time together uncovering it (from who knows how many years of dust, rock and soil) and also try to solve the mystery. Is it a model of a ancient civilization, or is a REAL civilization with tiny people?

I give this book a five out of five.

Was it interesting? Yes.

Was it believable? As believable as a miniature civilization can be! (Use your imigination, people. If Stonehenge can exist, why can't this itty-bitty civilization?) And it's very believable that two social outcasts would form a friendship (or a bond), but not fully trust one another, after the bullying they've suffered.

Would you recommend it to others? Uh, duh. That's why I'm writing this.

I wish I would have read it as a child, but knowing how stubborn I am, I probably wouldn't have appreciated it. I do now, though, and others should give it a chance. Who knows? It may just lead you through your own hidden door, to a time, place and world you never knew!

Barney has made friends with the trouble makers at his boarding school. In order to be their friend, he has done many things he knows to be wrong. Animal cruelty, however, is one he cannot go along with. Once ostracized from his former friends - now enemies, he befriends Snowy, a legally blind boy who is searching for something in a cave. Snowy needs Barney's help and together they unearth a fascinating discovery. In the midst of it all, Barney learns about honesty, loyalty and friendship. I did not like the ending of the book, but it is a good read.

This is one of the most finely crafted YA novels I've read,
a tale of courage and grace in the face of peer and adult
bullying, a story of growth under the most difficult yet
common experiences, one of those classic YA novels
that would provide intriguing sources of class discussion and
writing prompts for classroom use.

Through the Hidden Door deserves to be recognized by the various award committees as a significant contribution to young adult literature.
