I recently agreed to review “The Official Fablehaven Cookbook,” and I am so happy I did. This cookbook is an absolute delight.
I was unfamiliar with this wildly popular series of books. But after doing some investigating, I became enchanted.
The book centers around a secret sanctuary known as Fablehaven, owned by the main character’s grandparents. Fablehaven shelters mystical creatures on the brink of extinction. Within its hidden confines lies a stronghold of pure magic, an enchanting haven teeming with wonder and excitement.
The cooking magic happens at night when magical elf-like characters named Brownies, come to the kitchen and create recipes from disparate ingredients left out by the characters in the book.
This book starts with a delightful story, introducing the reader to the very engaging Fablehaven characters. Then, it gives the reader easy-to-make and fun recipes accompanied by snippets of stories and beautiful photographs. The section alone on Halloween Treats makes purchasing the book worth the investment.
Fablehaven is a captivating fantasy story and a perfect Halloween present for young readers. Its enchanting and suspenseful plot will keep them hooked and eager for more. With its mystical creatures, adventures, and thrilling challenges, Fablehaven will ignite their imagination and leave them wanting to explore the rest of the series. Additionally, it can be a great opportunity for a kitchen cooking project inspired by the fantastical world of Fablehaven, adding an interactive and creative element to their reading experience.
I highly recommend buying this book. I know that I will be buying it for my granddaughter and having lots of fun cooking up the magical recipes. Now, if I can just entice a Brownie to come to my kitchen……
