6th Grade Entry - Fablehaven

6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Hannah’s entry. Thanks, Hannah!

Brandon Mull
Aladdin Paperbacks, 351 p.

Kendra and Seth don’t expect much when they go to visit their grandparents while their parents are on a cruise. But they are in for a surprise. Kendra and Seth’s Grandpa is the caretaker of Fablehaven. The two children have no idea what lurks inside the woods of Fablehaven. They will have to find out for themselves. Their adventure will involve them in saving their family from witches, demons, imps, and other monster who want destroy the treaty of Fablehaven.

Kendra lacks bravery unlike her brother, Seth. However, she exercises good judgment with almost everything she does. She exhibits love and concern for Seth when she tries to keep him out of trouble. She shows diligence, conscientiousness, and cautiousness in her behavior.

What I liked most about this book was how the author wrote this fantasy. With his expressive and vivid use of words, he brings his characters and setting to life. His writing makes it very easy to visualize events in the story. The author also leads you to unexpected conclusions.

I think this is a book all would enjoy. This is especially a good book for fantasy lovers. If you like a story with many twists, this is the book for you.
