In the final Book of Elsewhere Olive must put a final end to the McMartin family line, help her friend Morton find his family, and make sure everyone, even the people from Elsewhere, who are made of paint, are safe and happy.

When paintings begin to get released from their portraits, things start to go horribly wrong, long-kept secrets are revealed, and Aldous McMartin must be destroyed quickly to prevent everyone Olive holds dear from turning to paint and stuck in Elsewhere.
I think this book was very entertaining and had enough suspense to get you through to the end. It was quite a good book, and the second I would start to read it, I was sucked into the immersing world of Jacqueline West’s imagination. While it was fairly easy to follow, I would recommend reading the other books in the series first. There was quite a lot of action to at the end that got my heart pounding, so I would recommend it for kids 11 and up. It was quite hard to follow at the end because there was a decent amount of going in and out of Elsewhere, making the real and painted worlds intermingled in a confusing way. So overall, with good action but a bit of a slow beginning and the book being fairly easy to follow through the whole story, I would give it 4.5 out of 5 stars, and recommend it for 11 and up because of violence and some confusion.
All in all, the final chapter of the Books of Elsewhere series was a sweet finish to the end of this series.
