Fablehaven by Brandon Mull

Published in 2006. 351 pages.

After the first six or seven pages, during which I considered abandoning it, I found this to be a delightful children's fantasy novel. It was the pick for one of my book clubs, which is why I persevered beyond those first pages, and we had a great discussion about the personality types of the two main characters and about choices and consequences. A sequel is due out this year.



  1. Alice...,

    I would like to invite you to leave a review of this book at our site . This is a literary community website my wife and I started about a month ago. We have had several mothers create book reviews for different age groups. We also have several on-line book discussions and you can start your own on-line book club. We are just starting out and would love to get your feedback. Everyone is welcome so please let your book club know as well.

    As for the book Fablehaven, how does it compare to Harry Potter or Inkspell?

    I look forward to hearing more about it.

  2. A fellow blogger bought the 2nd Fablehaven yesterday so it's out. He was excited. Do you think you will read the 2nd? I've been hearing good things about this series and will probably give the first one a try.
