Arthur Penhaligon is just an ordinary boy with asthma. He is supposed to die but is saved when he is given a key which is from a magical house. He meets a friend called Suzy Blue and she helps him to achieve his goals. Arthur doesn't really want to be a hero but he has to be, and his job is to solve a mystery - "day by day, key by key, realm by realm" - and stop the universe from being in chaos. There is a book for each day of the week, starting with Mister Monday and going through to Superior Saturday and a new book is coming out soon for Sunday.
