if it could keep the kids at the ymca content for half an hour a day, five days a week, all summer long, it must be something special. 11/14/15 Illustrated Edition Re-read I haven't re-read this book since I was 16, reading it to the kids at the Y on rainy days. I loved the illustrations and sharing this edition with my kids at school. In the end, I made the choice not to include it in our school library collection. $35 for a hardcover that I know is going to take a serious beating is just too high of a price during a tough budget year. This is much more of a family library addition, meant to be shared during bedtimes or sprawled over on the floor. Lugging it to and from school and urgent care was a pain, but I did love taking the opportunity to revisit all of the little details I'd forgotten. Neville stands out most of all, knowing now all of the things we readers didn't know then.
This account of the M.I.T. card counting team that won millions from Vegas casinos is as exciting as it is informative.
Book five was a nice ending to the Fablehaven series. There were so many new characters introduced in this book. I wish that we could have had more chapters with Grandma and Grandpa Sorenson and more familiar characters involved in the story. One of my favorite characters is Tanu and we read very little about him in the book.It was nice to see Seth so grown-up and taking his place among the heroes of Fablehaven. Overall, I enjoyed book 5 and I am sad that this series has ended.
