Listener Opinions

    " I read this to my son. He enjoyed it thoroughly. I think this is a good read for children 3-5th grade as it as a lot of vocabulary children can learn. It is the right length for this age group also. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sunny | 2/6/2014

    " I wasn't very impressed with this book. Maybe I need to read the others before I judge. But the writing seemed to get away from the author, as if she was inserting little details at the last minute rather than revising them into the story line where they belonged. But I loved the illustrations, and I'll read a few more to give them another chance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alysnyder Snyder | 2/1/2014

    " Cute stories, but won't recommend to others. The kids are too snotty for my taste. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sophie Stephens | 1/27/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Taro | 1/5/2014

    " I really love the illustrations in this series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamara | 3/19/2013

    " Get the magic and intrigue of it, but juvenile fiction always seems really choppy to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annemarie | 8/14/2012

    " I don't know why we haven't read this till now, my kids haven't shown any interest in fantasy I suppose, however my 9 year old read this in one sitting and loved it. He even took it to school today, looks like we have a new series to follow :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caleb D | 2/29/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mas5thgrade2011 | 11/4/2011

    " a mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaylah Hassard | 9/9/2011

    " Right up there with Chronicles of Narnia "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kellie | 5/13/2011

    " I wish Holly Black would go back and do some more stuff like this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Genevieve | 5/10/2011

    " Maybe better reading to get the illustrations? I listened to books 1 & 2 (and 3? can't even remember now) to get the feel. Fine enough and kind of fun because they're short. Mark Hamill is a fine narrator, actually. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scottandsasha | 5/6/2011

    " A quick family-fun book on tape for our road trip. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 4/29/2011

    " Goodbooks. Not to long fun easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 4/8/2011

    " Better to read all the books at once (like in one volume) than one at a time; that way they don't seem so short and rushed. Made me enjoy them much more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 4/8/2011

    " these were very quick. i think a child 2nd grade and up could read these. the movie follows the books fairly closely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 3/20/2011

    " Actually, picked up the "Completely Fantastical" edition (all five books in one hardcover, with bonus chapters and artwork). I thought I'd read it before I give it to my 9-year-old niece. The entire series was great fun (I would have loved it at her age) and well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Selina | 3/20/2011

    " A light, but enoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ali | 3/17/2011

    " Really fun romp through faerie. Warning that the first book is a bit terrifying (the illustrations of a doll's head in the wall and Mallory's hair tied to her headboard, particularly)...but it didn't stop me. The books are short, quick reads with lots of gorgeous illustrations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashlyn | 3/9/2011

    " i just loved this whole series. these books i read in like 20 min. to an hour when i was in 4th gradde. i recommend it
