Another fun addition... The Fablehaven Book of Imagination by Brandon Mull (Blog Tour Review)

I love all these activity and illustrated additions to series that have been coming out (like with Harry Potter and Throne of Glass)! This is the newest addition to this series and well worth checking out my thoughts on below...

Fablehaven has sold more than 3.5 million copies and readers made The Caretaker's Guide to Fablehaven, the first visual discovery and definitive guide to all the mythical creatures of Brandon Mull's wildly brilliant imagination, a bestseller in Fall 15. Now it's the READER'S turn to tap into your imagination in the very first interactive guide to Fablehaven!

Tuck this journal into your backpack, tote it along and use it as a fun activity book for all things Fablehaven and to reflect on the mythical creature metaphors found in the series.

  • If you owned your own invisibility glove like Seth, how would you use it today?
  • Learn how to draw a dragon’s head with step-by-step instructions.
  • You have found the legendary Totem Wall. Choose a face to speak with. What question would you ask?
  • Within the pages of this book are secret codes what will help the reader discover a secret message from Brandon Mull about Dragonwatch, the sequel to Fablehaven.
  • Dragons can create paralyzing fear. Imagine your hands and arms were literally paralyzed from encountering a dragon, but you still needed to write a message. Use your feet or mouth to write a note on the page.
  • Create your own art: draw your own magical preserve. Include your home, landmarks, trees, trails, areas to avoid. Where is it located? What is it called?
  • Draw your family pet as if it were a guardian to a hidden, ancient artifact. What special power does your pet have to protect the treasure it is guarding?
Fans will also find coloring book pages, mazes, scavenger hunts, and instructions for origami creatures of Fablehaven characters like Raxtus!

My Review

THE FABLEHAVEN BOOK OF IMAGINATION is just plain fun and pure enjoyment! With over a hundred pages of activities, it's sure to grab the attention of kids and adults alike. There are coloring pages, drawing pages, fill-in-the-blank pages, recipes, mazes, and much more. Perfect for FABLEHAVEN fans!

My kids and I poured over this book as soon as it arrived in the mail (one child even sneaking off with it for some time before I found him out). Everything is engaging and pulls on the reader's imagination to work through the different activities, especially the fun drawing parts. There is plenty here to keep the reader entertained for some time.

In the end, was it what I wished for? Yes! Just lots of fun for everyone, but simple enough for young readers and open enough for imaginations to take flight.
