Blog Tour: Fablehaven Book of Imagination by Brandon Mull

I'm soooooooo excited to be a part of this blog tour.  I love the Fablehaven series, and I know so many kids that feel the same way.  So when I was asked to participate I jumped at the chance!

About the Book

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?

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 creatues of Fablehaven characters like Raxtus!

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.

What a wonderful little book!!!! For fans of the Fablehaven series this is a must have!  Not only will it bring back so many wonderful memories of the stories, it will allow them to move into the world of Fablehaven just a tiny bit.  The book is filled with lots of creative activities connected to the entire series.  Anything as simple as creating as many words as possible out of the word FABLEHAVEN to creating your own wizard slime.  I like that not all of them require ingredients.  That would have been too much.  It's a nice mixture of simple and complex.  Oh - and if you've wanted to create a unicorn horn it's in the book! 

One other thing I really like are the quotes scattered throughout the book. They are from authors such as J.K. Rowling, J.R.R Tolkien, Roald Dahl and characters from the book.  My favorite is a quote from Seth: "If dragons weren't freaky, they'd be disappointing."  LOVE that!

And lastly - if you're excited about the new sequel to Fablehaven this has some clues to it! 

Media Thoughts:  As much as I love this book I couldn't put it in the library because it's intended to be consumed.  But for sure I would book-talk it AND I might have them do a few of the activities as a way to hook them into the series.  

Love Fablehaven
Are looking for a new series to enjoy
