by Marie on June 13, 2008

In preparation for a local Fantasy Fair and for storytime this week, I read (or mostly read) the book Fablehaven to my son. The vocabulary is more for an older child, so I did my best telling him the story. As some of you may know, I am a Fantasy/Science Fiction geek and have written […]
