Barker pre-sold Abarat's film and merchandising rights to Disney, and a marketing tsunami seems likely to result if the series is popular. Fortunately, his new world seems detailed enough to support a full-scale multimedia exploration, and interesting enough to warrant it.

Synopsis

A journey beyond imagination
is about to unfold. . . .

It begins in the most boring place in the world: Chickentown, U.S.A. There lives Candy Quackenbush, her heart bursting for some clue as to what her future might hold.

When the answer comes, it's not one she expects.

Welcome to the Abarat.
