i just finished reading the first Fablehaven book. i'm in the middle of reading the lost symbol for bookclub. and i feel a little bad because i am sure that book is a good one. one of my students gave me the fablehaven book at the end of the school year. i'd heard really good things about it, but hadn't gotten around to reading it. until about a month ago, when i decided to read it to my students. my kids have loved it. and so have i. they beg me to read it whenever we have a moment to spare. they even went so far as to buy me book two and three during our book fair. i just hope we have time enough to read them all this year.
the author lives in utah. and yes, he is a much better writer than someone else who went to byu. he's actually been to my school, i think.
i highly recommend this book. or series. it won't disappoint.
i hope they make a movie. i smell another harry potter blockbuster.
now only if i could decide: finish reading the lost symbol and then read the rest of the fablehaven books... or read fablehaven and then try to have the lost symbol done by the first of december. better do the lost symbol first. thanks for helping me think that one out.
UPDATE: check this out!
