Hello, this is my entry for the San Jose Public Library book review contest.
Recently I went to my local San Jose Public Library to pick up the prize I won for reading 5 books for You Are Here.
I basically had two choices for novels: Pride, Prejudice and Zombies or Fablehaven. I'd already read a bit of Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies, and decided I didn't like it.
So, instead, I chose FABLEHAVEN by Brandon Mull.

I think I chose the right book. Fablehaven is an interesting book. It's about two children who are left at their Grandfather's home while their parents go on vacation without them.
The kids' names are Kendra and Seth. Kendra is the older, more mature, more intelligent one, while Seth is the troublemaker. If something goes wrong in this book, it's probably Seth's fault.

The children soon discover that their grandfather, Grandfather Sorenson, has been hiding a secret from them. Grandfather Sorenson owns a large amount of land—many, many, many acres of land, but he prohibits the children from venturing out too far to keep them "safe." However, he never explains what he is trying to protect the children from. Kendra and Seth discover that Grandfather Sorenson is the caretaker of a refuge for mythological beasts, such as naiads—or water nymphs--, fairies, and satyrs. He calls this refuge Fablehaven.

The book is all about Kendra and Seth's adventures—and mishaps—in Fablehaven.
This is a very imaginative story. I think I made the right choice at the library; this is definitely better than Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies.

I'll be finishing my review soon, so...
If I've got you interested in this book, you should know that Fablehaven is part of a New York Times bestselling series that goes by the same name—Fablehaven. Again, the author is Brandon Mull. This book only provides a glimpse of the creatures that live in Fablehaven, so if you've read this book, decided that you want to learn more about the beings that make their home in Fablehaven, GREAT, you can read the rest of the series, too.

Happy reading, everybody!
