Review: Alice hears her father talking to someone in the kitchen. Peeking in through the door she sees that he is speaking with a fairy and he's not happy. When she next sees her father he tells her he must go on a journey. He is lost at sea and she is sent to live with an uncle she has never met. Her uncle sends her to his library, a huge building behind his house, where she encounters a strange man - and the book shelves seem to shift and change configurations. That night she tries to sneak back into the library but things get even more strange.
