Mull, B. (2006). Fablehaven. NY: Shadow Mountain.
Fablehaven is an enchanting story that entertains you through the whole ride. The story starts when Kendra, 13 years old, and Seth, 11 years old, visit their grandparents at their isolated home. What seems to be, at first, a boring vacation stuck in a house all summer, turns into a wild adventure after Seth and Kendra discover the dark secret that their grandparents are hiding. After solving a series of clues left by their grandfather and a few near misses exploring the woods, Kendra and Seth discover the world that has been hiding right in front of their eyes this whole time. They find a pan of milk outside, hidden behind a bush, and taking a leap of faith, drink from it. When they open their eyes they see what was hidden before: Fairies that had once been dragonflies and other magical creatures. Confronting their grandfather about this, he admits that their home is really a menagerie for many magical creatures that had once roamed freely. A wonderful home full of beautiful magical creatures, but Kendra and Seth soon find out that evil is lurking just below the surface.
