KIRKUS REVIEW

Heyer, who ""has worked extensively in commercial and fantasy illustration,"" has invented a world inhabited by a variety of surreal creatures plus Reena (a young Brooke Shields look-alike) and her parents. These three are trapped in a fabulous underground world till Reena finds the Door, is trapped by the evil Okira, and outwits her with the help of the other creatures. This trite story is told at length in an unexceptional style, and illustrated with great competence and in exquisite detail that demonstrates Heyer's ability to visualize a fantastic world--but leaves nothing to the reader's imagination.
