RAVE: Fablehaven book series!

Have you gotten your hands on a copy of these books yet?!

FANTASTIC books! Extreemly creative! Easy and fun to read too!
I know, I know...they're children's books but yes, I've read all 3 AND The Candy Shop Wars, which isnt part of the series, but is also written by Brandon Mull...
(come on, I read the entire Series of Unfortunate Events and loved them too!)

Ok to be perfectly honest I checked the first book, Fablehaven, at the library because I *know* the author. Kinda. He went to high school with my older brother- they were in choir and sunday school together. I was friends with his younger brother and sister in high school. His brother Bryson was a terrible driver and guess who was always driving me to school or home from choir rehersals and performances...yikes THAT was scary! Sometimes I felt like it was amazing that I was alive! lol

Seriously though- get your hands on a copy of all 3 of the Fablehaven books and Candy Shop Wars....before they're all turned into movies!

According to our local paper
There will be five books in the Fablehaven series. The first book iscalled "Fablehaven". Second is called "Fablehaven: Rise of the EveningStar", and the newest one which went on sale this week is "Fablehaven: Grip of the Shadow Plague". Hollywood wants to turn the Fablehavenseries into a film franchise, with the first book in the process of being turned into a screenplay. Another production company has bought the rights to another of Brandon's books, "The Candy Shop War."
"It's not trying to be Harry Potter, but it is trying to be a book that a Harry Potter reader might like. I try to write books I think are cool and are acceptable for kids so a parent and a child can read it together and have a good time. It's hard to prove to kids that reading is fun, and fantasy can be a great gateway into teaching kids that reading is fun." He spoke at 3 local elementary schools to 3rd, 4th, and 5thgraders about how reading could help them improve their imaginations.

So what are you waiting for?! Get your hands on these books and devour them like I did!
