The land of lost things / John Connolly.
While reading aloud fairy stories in hopes of bringing her comatose eight-year-old daughter back to this world, Ceres is called to a land colored by the memories of childhood and the folklore beloved by her father where old enemies are watching and waiting.
""Twice upon a time -- for that is how some stories should continue..." Phoebe, an eight-year-old girl, lies comatose following a car accident, a body without a spirit. Ceres, her mother, can only sit by her bedside and read aloud the fairy stories Phoebe loves in the hope they might summon her back to this world. But an old house on the hospital grounds, a property connected to a book written by a vanished author, is calling to Ceres. Something wants her to enter, to journey to a land colored by the memories of childhood, and the folklore beloved of her father--a land of witches and dryads, giants and mandrakes; a land where old enemies are watching and waiting... the Land of Lost Things"--Dust jacket flap.
