Suitcase of Stars (Enchanted Emporium #1) - P.D. Baccalario


Have you heard of Cinderella’s glass slipper? What about Sinbad the Sailor’s Flying Carpet? In this world, there are many magical items—but only one place where they’re safe: the Enchanted Emporium. For centuries, seven families have competed for ownership of the Emporium—and some of them are willing to do whatever it takes to get their hands on the powerful items housed within. Only Aiby Lily and her friend Finley have what it takes to stop the Emporium from falling into the wrong hands.

Saya suka sama bagian awal buku ini. Rasanya ringan, dan saya excited banget menunggu keseruan yang biasa kita dapatkan kalau sedang membaca buku anak-anak. Tau kan; seru yang konyol, sedikit lugu, dan kesannya cerah.
Saya suka karena Enchanted Emporium menampilkan beberapa barang-barang magic yang unik, dengan disertai gambar dan keterangannya di akhir bab. Sayangnya, ini cuma ada di beberapa bab awal buku ini. Setelah melalui setengah buku, ilustrasinya cenderung hilang. Well, saya sedikit kecewa.
Ceritanya juga berubah serius dan sedikit dark di pertengahan cerita, *sigh*. But overall, masih bisa ditunjukkan untuk anak-anak usia 6-12 tahun.
P.D. Baccalario adalah seorang penulis anak-anak yang bukunya cukup sering dikenal, dan beberapa kali diterjemahkan oleh penerbit Gramedia. Enchanted Emporium adalah sekuel pertama dari serial anak-anak terbarunya yang akan diterbitkan pada tahun 2014.
