    1. I read this to my daughter's aged 5 and 7.For the first few chapters my 7 year old complained:"It's boring, there are not enough pictures."Once we got to the part where they actually cross the veil and the action started up then she would beg for one more chapter. By the time we got to the second book, Door to Unger, she was having trouble choosing between listening to the story or playing a board game. It is now more interesting than playing with a tablet.My five year old oddly enough was the o [...]

    2. I absolutely loved this book. It teaches wonderful lessons about honesty, bravery, family, love, secrets, and friendship. The illustrations are charming and add to the magical adventure. It would make a fun read aloud story for families. I'm ordering book #2 immediately.

    4. Having heard Lee Edward Födi speak at the Packaging Your Imagination Conference by CANSCAIP I was inspired to check out his work. I purchased this book from the Mable's Fables kiosk at the conference. His talk was about writing Fantasy for Mid-Grade readers. He spoke about character and plot development. I have to say that I thought each character was distinct in this book and the pace of the novel was great. He also spoke about borrowing from all your favourite artists and there were many aspe [...]

    6. This is the first chapter book that held my kid's attention (5 and 7 year old). They begged me to read it even over playing video games or TV. Prior to this they would sigh and say BORING when I would try to read a book with no pictures. I loved the book because the language is beautifully descriptive and poetic. It even enhanced my own vocabulary. It is a pleasure to read allowed, especially as the different races are given different ways of speaking, so it gives inspiration for inventing diffe [...]

    7. I met Lee Edward Fodi in an author's group I belong to. One night, I heard him read from one of his novels, and was quite charmed by his Disney-like reading. I finally got around to reading the first of the Kendra Kandlestar books and was drawn right in. I loved the characters, the monsters, and the Unger. My favorite was Oki with all his little screeches and how he tries not to think about onions. This story is absolutely adorable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to any teacher/librarian [...]

    8. This page-turning adventure packs a whollup of a lesson: what we fear most is the truth about ourselves. Luckily, as Mark points out, it also helps us discover the magic of facing that truth.This cleverly crafted fantasy is full of magic, silliness, suspense and adventure and is an absolute hit with the little ones.

    9. Despite my rating of only 3.5 stars, I did enjoy this book. The characters and the storyline were cute enough, and the book as a whole was a light, fun read. I particularly loved the design of the library with it's crystal dome and it's book trees. I'm sure I can speak for most readers when I say THAT PLACE SHOULD EXIST. The drawings were a nice change as well. It's been a while since I've read a book with pictures.A few aspects were a little awkward, but pretty easily overlooked. All in all, it [...]

    11. I bought this book for my granddaughter for Christmas. I hope she will like it and I will get her others in the series. I found it fun and educational for the younger set. The world is well crafted and the monsters are scary and the heros are heroic. Kendra has to come to know herself in order to overcome the difficulties and find the Box of Whispers and solve the mystery. I was a little disappointed to see how closely it resembles Tolkien and The Hobbit, but imitation is sincereist form of flat [...]

    12. I looved it! It was so funny, it had dramatic moments, and the dawings were amazing! I was never bored. And I thought I was going to finish it in a week or so, but it eneded up being 2 like most books I read. I am in love with it. It would have been really amazing to do a sequel, but I really liked that book. I would read it again, but I got it from my school's library, soo, can't register it again. Anyways, I loved it, it was kind of like a comic, but with way more information.

    13. When the Box of Whispers is stolen from Een by the Red Thief, Kendra and a company of adventurers are chosen by the council of Elders to go through the magic curtain that protects Een to retrieve the Box of Whispers. Kendra knows that the Box is the most sacred artifact in Een but she has no idea why. To discover the truth she must overcome her greatest fear to try to overcome the thief.

    15. This book is for a slightly younger audience than I usually read. I think it's a sweet and imaginative story that 6-9 year olds will enjoy. I also think parents will appreciate its message, humour, and lack of graphic violance.

    16. This book is great for any young readers. I definitely don't recommend it to anyone who has read the Harry Potter series yet, because it pales to the point of invisibility when compared to Harry Potter.
