Brandon Mull, the author of Fablehaven


Monday night Izak had a baseball game smack dab in the middle of our FHE time. So we all went. It was fun the little kids didn't watch much but did play on the playground without too much trouble from bullies. Yep, they are everywhere! I had to pick up Timo from lacrosse and meet the rest of the family there. Emily ran up to me, "Mom, look who's behind me!!! Brandon Mull!" I looked, "oh, yes it is! Cool." You may wonder who he is is, he is actually a New York Times bestseller, he writes the fantasy books Fablehaven and he lives in Utah. His nephew is on Izak's baseball team so he was there supporting him. I took a picture of him with the team after, it's not the greatest but still something! (He is in the green shirt & cap). Emily finally got her nerve up and went over and talked to him. Apparently she is friends with him on Facebook! His nephew is also in Emily's musical theater class and is playing her love interest, Robert! So who knows, Brandon may be at her performance! He has been interviewed a lot lately since he just released his 4th book in the Fablehaven Series. He is really nice, life must get crazy for him. People were having him sign books for him after the game. He was very nice about it too. He is going to do some book signing for the team at the end of the season. I better get copies--we've only recently discovered him, Emily has read all the books borrowed from our neighbor. But I promised I would buy all of them so Izak could read them this summer--anything to keep him reading! So I haven't read them yet but I think I just might this summer!

I've read all the Fablehaven (up to the newest one) plus Candy Shop War. I enjoyed them all.

My computer is being weird and for some reason I don't get to see the photos today. Hopefully I'll get to see the photo soon. I haven't read those books either, and neither have any of my kids. We'll have to read them this summer.

I haven't read those books, or even heard of them. What age group are the written for? Are they more "boy" books, "girl" books, or for both?

I've only read the first two, but I thought they were great! I was waiting for the third one to come out in paperback before I bought it.. but I think it is out now so I should buy it. They're way better than Artemis Fowl in my opinion... ;-)

We have read all his books aloud as a family. My older kids wouldn't wait to read the last one together and each zipped through it in a day. They are great fun, full of magic but clearly show good as good and evil as evil. Clean, exciting family fun, imo.
