Publisher Comments:

This guidebook to the Fablehaven magical preserve is filled with everything a new Caretaker might need to know in order to survive. There are entries detailing important information about artifacts large and small, a complete bestiary of creatures (from fairies to trolls to satyrs), a guide to identifying demons, dragons, and wizards as well as valuable insights into the other magical preserves.

Immerse yourself into the secret knowledge that has been handed down through the generations by reading the updates and notes written in the margins by the former Caretakers of Fablehaven, including Grandpa Sorenson, Kendra, and Seth. Fully-illustrated, this unique encyclopedia has gathered the world of Fablehaven into one volume.

Scattered throughout the book are colorful fairies that also mark some of the characters, artifacts, and creatures that will be featured in the upcoming sequel series, Dragonwatch.

Synopsis:

Take caution ahead!

If you dare, join Jack and Jill as they embark on a harrowing quest through a new set of tales from the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, and others. Follow along as they enter startling new landscapes that may (or may not) be scary, bloody, terrifying, and altogether true in this hair-raising companion to Adam Gidwitzs widely acclaimed, award-winning debut, A Tale Dark and Grimm.

Spoiler Alert:

I have to agree with others who find this narrator's high pitched, "babytalk" way of reading to be extraordinarily distracting, disturbing, and obnoxious. Nearly every sentence comes across as though it's supposed to be the most exciting phrase ever uttered, as the narrator artificially elevates it. This poorly directed narration nearly caused me to halt completing the book, several times throughout the story.

While some of the creative characters, settings, and interactions are very engaging and fun, this book begins reveal just how the series will become increasingly violent, anti-social, and supportive of duplicity, lies, and disregard for the welfare of anyone other than oneself. The first Fablehaven book teaches OVERTLY that kids have no need to respect any type of boundaries, limits, or rules, as one will always be, eventually, forgiven and redeemed for all of the recklessness, selfishness, lies, impulsivity, and harm one creates with one's indifferent/thoughtless actions. **So, do whatever you want, whenever you want because YOU will not ultimately suffer any serious or lasting negative consequences (and who cares if anyone else is harmed!).**

Recklessness, self-centeredness, and impulsivity are redefined as "courage", in the Fablehaven books (and glorified repeatedly throughout them). Additionally, the message that adults will repeatedly and deeply trust kids who perpetually lie to them and are sneaky and manipulative, because adults are too gullible, trusting, and stupid to do otherwise, is insulting to the very notion of healthy, responsible interpersonal relationships. The reader must suspend her/his sense of disbelief to the point of completely turning off his/her intelligence, in order to find either the familial or nonfamilial relationships at all credible.

All of the fun, imaginative, exciting adventures in the world don't make up for a YA book with the basic premise that irresponsible, feckless whims are a socially, emotionally, and physically successful way to move through life - that others will both tolerate and best love those who demonstrate that approach to life. Worse yet, is the notion that cautious, wise, reflective people are not courageous - merely useless wimps that need others to constantly rescue and protect them. This author's love of violence and anti-social relationships earns a score of 2 stars from me. I'd make it a 1, except for the degree of originality and creativity inherent within this fantasy world.

I LOVED this series and proceeded to pass it along to adults and children alike. Akin to Harry Potter, Fablehaven involves a smart young girl named Kendra and her act first, think second little brother Seth. While visiting their Grandparents they discover a magical world that always existed but they could never see before. Suddenly Kendra and Seth must keep their wits about them as their lives become full of centaurs, fairies, unicorns, trolls, you name it! Book one involves Kendra and Seth being forced to bargain with a sneaky witch, who takes advantage of their ignorance to this new world. Can Kendra and Seth undo the damage they have caused? Read to find out! Such a fun story!!
