The Abarat Quintet is a sequence of books by Clive Barker, each dealing with the adventures of a teenaged girl named Candy Quackenbush from Chickentown, Minnesota. The series is set both on Earth, called the Hereafter, and in the strange and marvelous world of the Abarat, an archipelago of Twenty-Five islands in which each island is a different hour in the day

Concept and CreationEdit

Clive Barker concieved the idea in the early to mid-ninties as a book of 25 stories for children called Clive Barker's Book of Hours. He had over 200 oil paintings in which to illustrate the book, but it soon grew into something bigger and closer to his heart. After more and more paintings told him a story, he expanded it into a four book, later five, series for children.
