Talk about out of the frying pan, into the fire! I was pretty sure that my freaky stepsister and that freaky field guide of hers would ruin my life. But now it looks like they're going to ruin all of Florida, too! Okay, maybe that's not fair. Maybe all these stupid giants would be waking up anyway, but if it wasn't for her and that book, I'd be home playing video games and this would be someone else's giant problem!

    " For some reason I'm not getting into this new series as much as the first one. Maybe I'm still having an issue with the set up of these tales. The main stars of the first series make a surprise appearance at the end pointing to what could potentially be quite the ruckus for the third and final book. I'll just have to wait and see! "

    " These books are such a delight to read. I don't feel like I'm cheated on character or growth or pacing with the book's brevity, and I found Jules and his girlfriend to be so much fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Madeleine | 3/15/2011

    " Another fun, quick read perfect for elementary school-aged kids. Each book is written better than the last.

    The only negative part of this book/series is the repeated disobedience to the parents (who are unaware of the faeries and the perils). "
