Author Spotlight: Brandon Mull

You've probably heard of the New York Times best selling author, Brandon Mull. I'm proud to say he lives in Utah, and that I've met him a few times because he attends local writers conferences and book signings. He seems genuinely appreciative of his young fans and expresses interest in their lives. Go Brandon!

Take a look at his work:
Candy Shop War
Pingo (a picture book)

He's actually on tour right as we blog, and you can visit his site to see if he's stopping in your state. If you know any young readers who enjoy fantasy, this guy is a top notch suggestion.

See you all this Sunday for the start of the A-Z Blogging Challenge!

My book crazy nephew told me in great detail about the Fablehaven series. He's a super fan.

My kids had read the Fablehaven books on their own a while back. And because they they were so well-loved, one of them asked me to read them to him at night - just for the experience together. So each night we read a chapter or two and I am totally into it! Right now we're in the middle of Book 2. I love that he doesn't dumb down the language. Excellent vocabulary...and a good thrill before bedtime ; )

I read all of the Fablehaven books out loud to my girls, and we all loved them! I'm on my way to his site, to see if he's coming to Canada.
