Lost in an unfamiliar world, a traveler searches for understandingAt night, Little Jon's people go out to watch the stars. Mesmerized by a meteor shower, he forgets to watch his step and falls through a moss-covered door to another land: America. He awakes hurt, his memory gone, sure only that he does not belong here. Captured by a hunter, Jon escapes by leaping six feet over a barbed-wire fence. Hungry and alone, he staggers through the darkness and is about to be caught when he is rescued by a kind family known as the Beans. They shelter him, feed him, and teach him about his new home. In return, he will change their lives forever. Although the Beans are kind to Little Jon, the townspeople mistrust the mysterious visitor. But Jon has untold powers, and as he learns to harness them, he will show his newfound friends that they have no reason to be afraid.… (mer)

This book, and A Wrinkle in Time, got me started on my lifelong love for science fiction. ( )

By the author of 'Escape to Witch Mountain', 'The Forgotten Door' is something I stumbled across when looking for something I'd actually read when I was younger.

Jon has lost his memory. After a fall of some kind, he's woken up in unfamiliar woods and needs to find help to recover and make his way back home. But the people he's coming across are unusual, can't do the things that he can do, and find everything about him, from his appearance, and clothes, to the way that he talks, unusual, perhaps dangerous. The strange place he finds himself is called EARTH! Is he from another planet? The future?

Key raises many of the important issues of social science fiction - namely the need for compassion in confrontation of the unknown - in a way that young readers will comprehend. It's a simple story, some larger-than-life touches of government paranoia, with the villains being mostly unpleasant, greedy neighbors and the heroes a family. Everything is on an understandable scale.

If the book had any failings, it was the rushed ending and the inability of the author to come up with any other satisfactory conclusion than having the family trip off to wonderland with Jon as opposed to, I don't know, trying to make the world a better place? ( )

An enjoyable story - but oddly not what I remembered reading long ago. I'm not sure if I'm mixing stories, or I was young enough that Little Jon felt older (that's what I remembered - a teenager at least). It's got a lot of similarities to Escape from Witch Mountain by the same author, though the ending is happier. Mysterious child appears in the mountains - a mystery even to himself, without his memory. His peculiar abilities first help him, then get him into trouble with the authorities. But rescue comes at the last minute, and things end well - I'd forgotten the family's choice, too. ( )

One of the first science fiction stories I read. Re-read a couple of years ago and was impressed even though I've read hundreds of sf since. ( )

It happened so quickly, so unexpectedly, that little Jon's cry was almost instantly cut short as the blackness closed over him.
