Learn how to make Wizard Slime, create fairy fashions, and solve the Dreamstone maze in this first-ever interactive book of Fablehaven awesomeness. And that s just the beginning: *Make your own origami model of Raxtus the dragon *Draw a map of your own magical preserve *Practice withstanding a distracter spell *Solve riddles from the sphinx *Learn how to play a game of Shadow Tag *Learn how to draw a dragon *Color detailed coloring pages of Fablehaven creatures *Make an enchanted rain stick *Learn to cook Ogre Stew *And much, much more . .
And within the pages of this book are secret codes that will help readers discover a secret message from Brandon Mull about Dragonwatch, the sequel series to Fablehaven.
Our children have all fought over ownership rights to this book! It is full of fun activities, origami, slime recipes and text to trigger the imagination. It’s a great workbook to take to a place where you need to sit for a while as a quiet book. Our middle grade ages children particularly enjoyed the Book of Imagination even though they’ve never read the Fablehaven series. Highly recommend!

Defenders of the Family, assemble! God’s magnificent plan for us rests upon the strength of the family. In this engaging children’s book, discover the roles and teachings needed to unite your family, from devoted parents to extended members, all centered on the power of the gospel. Help your children see their families as they can be: incredible, empowered, eternal followers of Jesus.
A picture book with comic book style illustrations, Defenders of the Family takes Family: A Proclamation to the World and breaks it into understandable verse for even the youngest reader. We used the hardback as a read aloud to reinforce principles such as enjoying activities together, work as a family, strong marriage and the eternal nature of gender. The target audience are children of the LDS faith, but all readers would enjoy the vibrant colors and timely message.
