FABLEHAVEN
Book 1


Fablehaven - Book 1Fablehaven is a great book! It's about 2 kids, Kendra and her brother Seth, who go to their rarely seen grandparents' house. They solve a little mystery about their grandpa and the large preserve he lives on. It turns out he is caretaker of Fablehaven, a magical preserve, where there are trolls, satyrs, witches, imps and fairies. Since Kendra and Seth don't know this at first, their grandpa wants them to figure it out so he can have someone to take over Fablehaven when he's done. But he can't just tell them, he needs to have them figure it out to see if they are the right type of people to take care of Fablehaven.

But, Seth keeps breaking the rules and he gets into bigger trouble than he thought he would. He needs to fix his huge mistake. Kendra is watching the housekeepers and thinks they are acting really strange around herself and Seth. They keep feeding the butterflies and hummingbirds and dragonflies. Kendra wonders why there are so many different kinds and why they all stay in her grandpa's yard.

Finally Kendra cracks the code her grandfather gave her. It opens a blank book except for 3 words tucked deep in a corner near the binding. “Drink the milk”. Kendra wonders if the milk she had seen Dale (one of the housekeepers) put out and act suspicious around. So she had Seth drink it first as a test because Dale said it could make you sick with bacteria it had in it.

Seth went crazy claiming the butterflies were fairies, so Kendra tried the milk and she saw fairies too. So they asked their grandpa what it meant. He told them all about Fablehaven and how dangerous it could be. So now they drink the milk every day in hot cocoa, while at their grandfather's house.

Now that they know about Fablehaven, they start to help take care of it. But, something bad is about to happen to Fablehaven and Kendra and Seth need to help save it.

I LOVED this book. It was full of adventure. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did if you read it.

Don't you think it was kind of mean that Kendra made her brother drink the milk first? I think that sisters should be nicer to their brothers.

Otherwise, great book report. I will try to check it out for my daughter.

Fablehaven sounds like a pretty neat place; Seth sounds like he was a bit of a trouble maker.

Meesha -

The secret of the book:  Drink your milk.  Believe.   I can handle those.  I know you can, too.

Glad to read your nice write.
