I have read all the books. My Canadian cousin showed me the first one and I liked it so much I read the rest. I am from the UK. My Een name is Luna Larksong. I went dressed as Kendra for World Book Day. Are you going to write another Kendra book? If so, please can the cover be dark blue?

Eengards,

Luna Larksong, age 9

 

Can you make more Kendra Kandlestar books please? My favourite characters are Kendra, Oki, Jinx and Professor Bumblebean. Actually, I like them all, I think Jinx is really funny when she calls him professor Bumblebutt!

Marisol, age 7

 

My favourite character is Ratchet because he is so silly and once he put Oki on a rocket.

David, age 7

 

Dear Mr. Födi,

I love your Kendra Kandlestar series! My grandmother was the one who first introduced it to me. Every night when I read your books it is very hard to stop reading and go to sleep. I like your books because they are so fantastical and I love reading fantasy. My favorite Kendra book is The Crack in Kazah.

How did you get the idea for your books? Once again, they are the best! I hope you write book number 6. Your books are super interesting for me to read.

Iris

 

Hi Lee Edward Fodi,

Your books are the best books I have ever read. My favourite character is Uncle Griffinskitch—humph! I really want you to write lots and lots more books. My favourite book is The Shard From Greeve because I love when Kendra and Prince go in the rumble pit. Love your illustrations!

Chloe, age 10

 

I really like your books! Please write more Kendra Kandlestar books! I have an idea for one you should write: A Kendra Kandlestar Guidebook. It could have facts about the series. I hope you write more books! Thanks for answering my letter! I'm not sure which book is my favorite! I like them all!

L., age 12

 

I absolutely love your books. I hope you keep writing them. My favorite book is The Search For Arazeen. My favorite character is Oki. I really like him because he is funny. It is funny how he tries to not think of something.

Last year for Halloween, I was Jinx. My best friend was Oki. I wanted my dad to be Uncle Griffinskitch, but he said no.

I have all of the books on my kindle including Legends and Lore from the land of Een. I have read them all at least three times. This series is my favorite series that I have read for a long time.

Are you going to write more books? I really hope you do. You are one of my favorite authors. Thank you so much for writing this series.

Lucia, age 11

 

I'm a huge fan of this series! I have read all five of Kendra Kandlestar and loved them all. My favorite is Kendra Kandlestar and the search for Arazeen, which is #5. Without a doubt, my absolute favorite character is Leerlin Lurk. I have made a Een name and that is Jubilee Janglemoon. Please, please, please, PLEASE make a 6th book so you can explain about the new possible adventure with Lurk?

Your #1 fan,

Morgan, age 12
 

I have already read all of your books and I think they’re awesome! My favourite part is when Kendra and Oki meet Pugglemud, my favourite book is Book 1, and my favourite character is the infamous Kayla Kandlestar and Uncle Griffinskitch. I'll keep reading if you keep writing! I really loved The Search of Arazeen. When I started reading it I couldn't put it down! My favourite character is Honest Oki I really liked the Elder stone!

Erica, age 9

 

My favorite character is Oki and my favorite scene is when Oki turned into an onion in book one. Book one is the only book I read so far and I'm really excited to read the other Kendra Kandlestar books.

Jadyn, age 10

I have read all your books and now I'm drawing all your characters with no ruler just an eraser a pencil and sharpener I love your books I can't wait for your new books.

Sara, age 11

 

I have read the whole series of Kendra Kandlestar and I don’t like it, I LOVE it because it is full of Mystery, Fiction, Drama, Adventure, and a little bit of Reality. My favourite character is Kendra Kandlestar and my favourite book in the series is Kendra Kandlestar And The Search For Arazeen.

Erin, age 9

 

I love your books! My favorite is number five. In number five, my favorite part was the war and Kendra's birthday party! My second favorite is number two, when they got to the Door to Unger. Are you going to write another book?

Ana, age 9

 

My favourite character was Oki because I thought it was funny when he thought of onions when he was scared. My favourite part was when Kendra and Oki opened the Box of Whispers. I give this book a 10/10.

Julie, age 10

 

My brother introduced me to the Kendra Kandlestar book series in 2012, and I thought that the book series is absolutely AWESOME . . . My favorite character is Uncle Griffinskitch or Oki, and my brother’s favorite character (I'm saying this because we read the series together) is Agent Lurk, Jinx, or Pugglemud and our dad's favorite character is Uncle Grifinskitch. Our favorite book is The Search for Arazeen or The Shard of Greeve. Don't stop writing!

Emmett, age 13

 

I'm on the fifth book. It is so amazing. I did love the ending; I just wished it could go on more but I enjoyed it so much that I think I’m going to read all the books over and over again. Thanks for making amazing books.

Sara, age 10

 

Dear Mr.Fodi,

I have all of your books. My favourite one is The Search for Arazeen. I like your books because you make it seem like Kendra is telling the story, but you still narrate it. How do you do that? Can you make more books please?!?! As long as you keep making them I'll keep reading them.

Katie, age 10

 

Kendra Kandlestar and the Search for Arazeen was great. It was imaginative and creative. It was a really good way of finishing a series, especially for Kendra. I like how there is so much suspense. Kendra would set off to find Arazeen but once she gets there, she suddenly wants to go away.

Jamie, age 10

 

I loooooooove this book [Kendra Kandlestar and the Search for Arazeen] and the rest of the series. I don’t have a favorite character—I like all of them.

Emma, age 10

 

My favorite character was Kendra, and how she saved a lot of her friends when they went into the Door to Unger. My favorite scene was when they found Kiro. The plot was fantastic. The book made me feel always to be happy to have a family that is not lost and I should not fight with my siblings. The vocabulary was awesome. I loved the cover and illustrations.

Chelsea, age 11

 

I love all the Kendra series. It is so adventurous. My favorite character was Trooogul because he was awesome; he did all sorts of fighting and escaping from the humans, and also helps Kendra when she is in trouble. Trooogul is the man. My favorite scene was when Burdock Brown was brutally kicked in the back by Jinx, and I always think that kind of stuff is hilarious, and then Ratchet used some snore galore and Bam! Sorry, Burdock, but you let your enemy away. The plot was AMAZING, with the soft and delicate adventure flowing through my body.

Chris, age 10

 

Kendra Kandlestar and the Door to Unger was truly an amazing book. It was just the type of book I like: adventure and excitement, but a tiny bit of mystery. I love this. I am really encouraged to read the next book. My favorite characters are Kendra, Oki, and Uncle Griffinskitch. Kendra, because she is kind, adventurous, and just like me, except for I’m really chatty sometimes, Oki, because he is funny and he’s a scaredy-cat (no offense, Oki) and Uncle Griffinskitch because his signature “humphs” are really funny and how different types mean different things. My favorite part is when she experiences the Kiro thing and I love how Kiro calls Kendra “Little Star.” Awww. I will read the next book, too!

Chloe, age 10

 

I just finished reading Kendra Kandlestar and the Door to Unger. I think every book is better than the last, but one thing that I'm certain of is that it is always going to be my favourite series. I kind of get what it's like to feel like you have an incomplete family, because my parents are divorced. I hope she is reunited with her family especially Kiro (Trooogul).

Ashley, age 10

 

My favorite book is the first one (the Box of Whispers) and out course my favorite character is Kendra!

Neveah, age 8

 

I read Kendra Kandlestar and the Door to Unger, and I have three words to say. BEST. BOOK. EVER. My favorite character was Oki, because he in the first book he tries not to think of onions, then in the second, he tries not to think of turnips. My favorite scene was when Kendra and the gang encountered the skerpent, in which the illustration was amazing!

Joey, age 10

 

Dear Mr. Fodi,

My Een name is Genel Jinglebloom. I have only read your first book, The Box of Whispers and your fourth book, The Crack in Kazah. I love them. I do not have a favourite book, but my favourite character is Kendra as she is very adventurous and brave. Your books are much better than Geronimo Stilton, which I do not like to read. Or Nancy Drew.

Genie (a bookEEN named Genel Jinglebloom), age 10

 

Hi Mr. Wiz!
I just adore your books! They are the best! Please make 20 more books. No, make that 100. No make that 99999999999. Thanks!

Erika, age 11

 

I really enjoyed the first four Kendra Kandlestar books. So far, my favorite Kendra Kandlestar book is The Crack in Kazah because I think it would be pretty cool to have the Kazah stone. My favorite character is Kendra. I hope you write a new series once you finish this one. I had fun creating my own Een name when my mom and I checked the website.

Lily, age 11

 

This book is amazing! In Kendra Kandlestar and the Crack in Kazah, you get whisked away on an adventure not to where, but to when. This was a real page-turner.

Alison, age 11

 

This is one of the most fun books I ever read. This book is fun and adventurous. Kendra is a fun character. If you like magical creatures, fun, and adventures, than this is the book for you.

Fiona, age 10

 

I loved all your books and I could not stop reading them. They were truly inspiring and had a lot of suspense. I read them so often that one day my mother hid the one that I was reading from me because I had to finish my homework. I can’t wait until the last book in the series comes out!

Samantha, age 8

 

I loved all four of your books! They were so full of suspense and mystery. My favorite book was Kendra Kandlestar and the Crack of Kazah. Great job!

John, age 9

 

Amazing book! I can't wait for the next one! I hope you continue making another series after the last one.

Kaniel, age 11

 

I finished The Crack in Kazah yesterday.  It was one of the best books I have ever read in my life.

Jonathan, age 10

 

I LOVE your Kendra Kandlestar series although I've only read the first book! Well actually my teacher read it to the class! My favorite character is Kendra.

Priya, age 10

 

My kids and I are in love with the Kendra Kandlestar series. I read it to my daughters 5 and 7 and they chose to listen to me read over watching TV. That is a huge compliment because they adore TV.

Alfreda

 

I LOVE YOUR BOOKS! My favourite book is Door to Unger. My favourite chapters are Into a Maze of Monster, Who Kendra Finds in the Labyrinth, The First Elder of Een, A Brave Sacrifice and a Whisper Given.

Navin, age 9

 

My favorite book is the first one. My favorite character is Uncle Griffinskitch. Can you make a book that makes Kendra get kidnapped by humans but Gregor, Jinx, Bumblebean, and Oki save her but you can add more details. My Een name is Jelinda Emberstar!

Jelani, age 10

 

I’m a huge fan of these books. My favourite book in the book series is Kendra Kandlestar and the Door to Unger. My favorite character is Kendra Kandlestar. I created my Een name. It’s Boboon Upbeak.

Cayla, age 10

 

I love your books! I like the first one the best because that's when it all started. My favorite character is Kendra because I like her hair.

Ester, age 10

 

Dear Mr. Fodi,

My name is Simone and I'm seven years old. I really like the Kendra Kandlestar books so much that I even dressed up like Kendra for Halloween, but I also like Oki and Jinx. I'm looking forward to the next book of Kendra Kandlestar. My mom did my hair so I guess it might have been hard, it took her a long time. My favorite book is Kendra Kandlestar and the Crack in Kazah.

Simone, age 7

 

I love Kendra Kandlestar! I think my favourite characters are Oki, Trooogul, and Kendra. This is how popular the books are around my age. As long as you keep writing, I'll keep reading.

Megumi, age 8

 

Thanks for being such a great inspiring author! I love your books and could never put them down. Now I am waiting for your next book to come out! My favourite book is Kendra Kandlestar and the Crack in Kazah and my favourite character is Oki because he is always scared and funny. My sister and I suggested your first book for the school district's Battle of the Books competition and it was selected for Grade 5.  

Luke, age 10

 

I am a huge fan I love your books! I went to a book store and bought your books. My favorite character is Kendra because she is brave and goes to adventures.

Melynda, age 10

 

My favorite book is Kendra Kandlestar and the Door to Unger. I liked how her older brother was in there.  My favorite character is Oki. 

Ethan, age 11

 

Dear Mr. Wiz,

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the third book, The Shard From Greeve. Oki is my favorite character, because even though Kendra acts really mean, he still sticks to her. The book has very descriptive words, and the characters are fantastic! I love the fact that Pugglemud keeps turning up in the stories, each time with an even weirder name then the last. Also, green is one of my favorite colors.

Joanne, age 11

 

Hello, Mr. Fodi.

I love your books. My favourite book is The Shard from Greeve and, also, your drawing is amazing, just to tell you!

Hans, age 8

 

I think the Kendra Kandlestar books are really awesome! My favorite book is The Crack in Kazah because Kendra and Oki travel back in time. My favorite characters are
Pugglemud and Oki because Pugglemud always does bad things to Kendra and her family, but everything turns out alright in the end because Pugglemud always gets defeated afterwards. I like Oki because he is really cute and the complete opposite of Pugglemud, and because he always tries not to think about things (like eggs), but it never works.

Callula, age 11

 

I just want to let you know that I love all of your books, especially The Crack in Kazah. Could you please write some more? I was wondering if you could make movies based on the books also.

Andrew, age 9

 

My favorite books are The Box of Whispers and The Crack in Kazah, because I liked when Kendra went back iin time. I hope the fifth book is good!

Harveer, age 11

 

My favorite book is Kendra Kandlestar and the Crack in Kazah, because the book has a great adventure. Also, my favorite books are Kendra Kandlestar and the Door to Unger and The Box of Whispers. I’m looking forward to reading the fifth book.

Sharleen, age 11

 

My favorite books are Kendra Kandlestar and the Door to Unger and The Box of Whispers because The Door to Unger has lot of characters and a map to show where Kendra started from. My favorite characters are Oki and Uncle Griffinskitch.

Phat, age 11

 

My favorite book is Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers. The first time I read it, I was surprised. I really liked this series because it has a weird character.

Ansh, age 11

 

I really like these books because they have a lot of action and imagination. They are creative and her hair is really artistic. My favorite book was The Door to Unger.

Jade, age 11

 

My favorite book is The Crack in Kazah. I really, really like the books a lot. The pictures, they’re awesome.

Emma, age 11

 

I really love your Kendra Kandlestar books. They are full of fantasy, exciting adventures, and suspense on every page. I have read The Door to Unger and I was amazed. It was so adventurous, full of curiosity, and the characters were really courageous!

Khushdeep, age 11

 

My favorite character is Kendra Kandlestar. She is so adventurous and curious. I look forward to the fifth Kendra book.

Nimrit, age 11

 

My favorite book is Door to Unger because I think a monster maze would be real cool. I can’t wait for the fifth book because I would love to read it.

Kael, age 11

 

I am Kendra Kandlestar’s biggest fan. I have read all the books.

Sarah, age 11

 

I love your books. I have read all your books at least five times. My favorite book is the first book. It's the best because everyone goes on a huge adventure and meets Pugglemud. My favorite scene is when Oki screams. My favorite character is Professor Bumblebean because he loves books and I do too.

Sydney, age 10

 

When I was 9 or so my brother lent me a book Corranda's Crown. I read all of Kendra Kandlestar books so far. Then one day I realized that both those books were by the same person! I was amazed!! I truly love all your books.

Megan, age 12

 

I love these books! I cannot wait for the next one! My favorite characters are Kendra, because she tests things just like me, and I love Jinx, because she's unstoppable like me. My mom and I read them every night. My mom loves the Peryton and the part when Kendra realizes she is responsible for ruining the beautiful prince. She even cried when reading that part to me. 

Isabella, age 9

 

I love your books! They are great. I like the part of The Box of Whispers, where they fought the dragon. It was not an easy task for me!

Megan, age 8

 

I'm hoping Trooogul comes back in his Een form.  He is my favorite character because he was so selfless in his sacrifice for Kendra.  My favorite book is book 2, The Door to Unger. I love the series.

Virginia, age 11

 

I just finished reading the third Kendra Kandlestar book and it is awesome! Trooogul is definitely my favorite character!

Natalie, age 10

 

I love your books so much. I would not read any other books! I even tried to make my mother start The Door to Unger! I LOVE YOUR books. My favorite characters are Oki, Gayla, Prince, and Kendra.

Evie, age 9

 

I love Kendra Kandlestar and the Shard from Greeve. My favorite part is when Jinx said, “Well, well, well, if it isn’t Agent Jerk, Captain Stinkle, and their band of idiots.” That part is really funny.

Zoi, age 8

 

Days of Een! I cannot believe how wonderful your books are! My favorite book is Kendra Kandlestar and the Shard from Greeve. My favorite scene is when all the dwarves and gnomes get in a fight at the Rusty Bucket. My favorite characters are Kendra, for how she is brave and determined to find her brother, Oki, for his “Don’t think of pickles” motto, and Uncle Griffinskitch, for his famous Humphs! My grandma has been giving me the collection. I can’t wait to have book five memorized in my braids! Oh, and one more thing, tell Kendra that I said hi.

Shannon, age 9

 

This is the most greatest book ever written in the world. My favorite book is Kendra Kandlestar and the Shard from Greeve.

Abigail, age 9

 

Your books are so splendidly amazing! My favorite book is The Shard from Greeve. I absolutely enjoyed the part when they entered the Rumble Pit. My favourite character is Prince because he is such a majestic creature!

Jordan, age 10

 

I love Kendra Kandlestar. My favorite character is Honest Oki. He is so cute. I read The Box of Whispers in about four days, I read The Door to Unger in about two days, and I read The Shard from Greeve in about three days. That’s how much I love your books. YOUR BOOKS ARE AWESOME!

Daniel, age 9

 

I LOVE LOVE LOVED Kendra Kandlestar and the Shard from Greeve. Hope you write seven books more. I really hope you do. The Kendra Kandlestar series are the best books I know of. They are too good.

Piper, age 8

 

I am in love with the Kendra books! I just moved and where ever I go I will always have Kendra with me! I love Kendra so much that I dressed up for her on “dress as your favorite book character” day! Bye!

Emily, age 8

 

I LOVE your books! I don’t have a favorite character because they are all equally awesome. I love all the books, but I like the Shard from Greeve more. I couldn’t put your books down and that is how I read all three in four days. It’s true. Trust me. You have to write more books of Kendra Kandlestar! If you don’t, I’ll have Trooogul throw you into the Rumble Pit. No I’m just kidding. You’re too awesome to be thrown into the Rumble Pit, so you’ll be grounded from TV for a month. Seriously though; you should write more Kendra Kandlestar books.

Mary, age 12

 

I love your books and your ideas so I hope you can keep writing and I can keep reading. Once again, I love your books!

Simran, age 11

 

Last semester, I made Kendra Kandlestar and the Shard from Greeve the topic of my project. I liked the fact that Kendra had seven braids; it is highly unusual. My favorite character is Oki, while my classmate’s favorite character is Queen Krake! I am excited about your fourth book.

Jessie, age 10

 

I finished reading the third Kendra Kandlestar book. It was such a good book. My favorite characters were Oki and Kendra. Kendra is such a smart girl, even though she’s young. Oki is really funny. Every time I read about Oki, he made me laugh non-stop. The Shard felt so real; I thought I was holding it! This is the best book ever.

Tiffany, age 11

 

Kendra Kandlestar and the Shard from Greeve was the best book I have ever read, thanks so much for writing all the wonderful books. Keep writing!

Cassie, age 11

 

I’ve read Kendra Kandlestar and the Shard from Greeve and I loved it! I hope for lots more! Kendra is really brave to do all those things. I hope in the next books she turns Trooogul back to her brother. It is one of my favorite books ever! I highly recommend it to other eager fantasy readers!

Rhiannon, age 9

 

I want to thank you for keeping me busy reading for three segments of the Kendra Chronicles. I think that you have done such a phenomenal job with every book, and you have kept me hooked from the first to last page of each book. Most books are sort of boring at the beginning, but yours are exciting from start to finish! I will inform you that reading a book about the length of yours can take me quite a long time, but when I read the Kendra books, they only take me two days because they are full of excitement, suspense, and everything that you could ever ask for in a story.

Sarah, age 10

 

Dear Mr. Fodi, I’ve read the first three books in the Kendra Kandlestar series and they were AMAZING! My favorite characters from The Box of Whispers are Kendra, Oki, Jinx, Rumour, and Uncle Griffinskitch. From The Door to Unger: Kendra (of course), Oki, Effryn Hagglehorn, and Trooogul. From The Shard from Greeve: Prince, Oki, Jinx, and Uncle Griffinskitch. I love your books and drawings!

Victoria, age 12

 

I love your books about Kendra Kandlestar. My favorite was The Shard of Greeve. My sister is like Jinx. I am like Ratchet. I invented a heater, but it exploded!

Samuel, age 9

 

This book was amazing. There are lots of characters. My favorite character is Kendra Kandlestar and I really liked the part when all the different creatures fight. It’s intense!

Vianney, age 10

 

. . . I . . . I . . . I just can’t describe how I feel about the Kendra Kandlestar books. I’m obsessed with them. I think they should be movies. I’m not sure what book I like best but I don’t like The Shard from Greeve because of the dark magic. I hate Burdock Brown, and my favorite character is all of them except Burdock Brown and Pugglemud.

Naomi, age 10

 

I just finished The Shard from Greeve. It was awesome. What was Prince’s real name? Can’t wait to read the next book! Prince was my favourite character.

Abby, age 9

 

I just finished reading the book, The Shard from Greeve. It rocked and now I want to read the fourth so bad. You make me wonder so much. I was surprised at Lurk being an Een. I suspected Dirtybeard to be Pugglemud. And the illustrations are really good; they’re fantastic! I want to draw like you! Love your book!

Danny, age 11

 

I am addicted to your books! Please tell me the release date of Book 4 (Kendra Kandlestar and the Crack in Kazah)! My favorite character is Honest Oki! I just can’t wait to read Book 4! I am also a huge fan and read all three books.

Gabrielle, age 9

 

I love your Kendra Kandlestar books. My favorite one was The Box of Whispers that I read when I was seven. I recommend the Kendra Kandlestar books to all my friends. When I start it I can’t put it down! I can’t wait for Kendra Kandlestar to return.

Jessica, age 8

 

I love your book Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers! It is the best book I have ever read! My favorite characters are Jinx, Kendra, and Oki! Kendra because she is kind, thinks for herself and of others too! Jinx because she has courage, muscle and, best of all, power. I wish I was her. Oki is a very funny character, since he always thinks about onions. I will read this book a lot in my lifetime.

Carmen, age 10

 

Hi, Mr. Födi, I read your book Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers and it was amazing. I liked your book so much I made a rap about it.

Miguel, age 12

 

I really enjoyed your book Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers. My favorite characters are: Kendra, Jinx, and Professor Bumblebean. I like Kendra because she overcomes her fears of the outside world. I like Jinx because she tells you that small can mean also fierce. I like Professor Bumblebean because of his knowledge of the outside world. I also like the book tree in his library. This is a really good book. I can’t stop reading it and I can’t put it down. Thanks for writing an awesome book.

Joelle, age 10

 

I love Kendra Kandlestar! The books are so great! I can’t wait till the next one comes out!

Marion, age 9

 

I completely LOVE the Kendra Kandlestar series! I didn’t know about it at first, but Mr. Lee Edward Födi came to our school, said his wonderful and funny life story, and inspired me to read his books!

Sarah, age 10

 

I really enjoyed Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers. My favorite part of the story was the end where they were in danger in the dragon’s castle . . . I really enjoy your books!

Alannah, age 9

 

Kendra Kandlestar books are amazing to me because they are adventurous and mysterious and very exciting because you will never know what’s going to happen next.

Josha, age 9

 

I’m in grade four, I’ve read all of the books that you wrote. Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers is one of the best books I’ve read in my whole entire life, in fact our whole school thinks it’s a great book. My whole entire class read it and chose it for our favorite book. I’m a big fan of yours, I’m waiting for the second book. I hope that you will write a third and fourth book about Kendra and the gang.

Kay, age 9

 

Kendra Kandlestar is a magnificent book. Nothing is expected except for monsters around every twist and turn. I love Kendra, Oki, Griffinskitch, and Jinx. This is the best book ever made in the fantasy section. We all learn lessons from this book.

Matthew, age 11

 

Dear Wizard of Words,
Why do you like making books? I read Kendra Kandlestar and the Door to Unger and it’s one of my favorite book EVER! It’s so creative and has a lot of detail in it.

Riley, age 10

 

I really like your book Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers. It is the best! First, I thought when my teacher was going to read it, it was just a book because she said she had good news and I said what are the good news, I really want to know, but when she showed us the cover page I was just so surprised. I said to myself it’s not just a book it’s a magical book . . . I really like your book now I can’t stop reading your book.

Ysabel, age 10

 

I got sucked into the book. I just couldn’t put the book down!

Tom, age 12

 

I have read the book Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers and Kendra Kandlestar the Door to Unger. It was really good. My favorite character is Oki. I like Oki because he is really funny. On the first book he was thinking about onions but on the second book he started thinking about turnips.

Shaira, age 11

 

This is the most awesome book ever! This book is amazing! I recommended this book to my class. My teacher said it sounds good! I love it!

May, age 9

 

I stayed up all night reading Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers. I couldn’t stop reading. It was a great book. I love the detail. It definitely brought it to life. I found the idea interesting because everyone kind of has a Box of Whispers of their own. Some people choose to open it and some choose to keep it locked.

Willow, age 11

 

This book is special, because it has unusual things like the Riddle Door and the Garden of Books. I like Jinx, because she calls Professor Bumblebean funny names. I like the pumpkins, because they make stupid remarks. The book was good, because it was really funny. My favorite character was Captain Jinx, because she was funny but stern.

Bethany, age 8

 

I like Kendra Kandlestar because she is adventurous, and she teaches us to be not afraid and she also has the courage to stand up for herself. I like Uncle Griffinskitch because in the book he tells us the right thing to do and even though he is grumpy in the book I believe he is only like that to protect Kendra. I like Honest Oki because he is honest, and at the end of the book even though he is scared he tried his best just to help Kendra. He is also a great friend to Kendra; he helps Kendra with a lot of things. I like Professor Bumblebean because he is smart and I wish I was smart as him too. I like Jinx because she is strong and she is not afraid to try.

Mariel, age 11

 

My teacher finished your book, AND IT WAS AWESOME! My favorite part was when the orb chose Kendra and Oki to go on the adventure. I loved your book.

Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers was a really great mystery for the gang to get the Box of Whispers back from the Red Thief. I really liked it when Kendra and Oki worked to get the Box . . . This is the BEST book I have ever read. EVER. And I read a lot of books. My momma says I have a mini library in my room. Hope there are more Kendra stories to come.

I read Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers, it’s better then good . . . it’s AWESOME!

Andrea, age 11

 

I loved your book! This is what I had to say about Uncle Griffinskitch: Uncle Griffinskitch is sometimes grumpy and says ‘Humph’ a lot and he is sometimes kind, because he forgave Kendra that she saved an Unger. He said if Kendra leaves Een so does he. I think Uncle Griffinskitch is great because he teaches us to forgive people for their mistakes.

Without you, there would be no Kendra, Oki, Jinx, Uncle Griffinskitch, Ratchet, Trooogul, and Professor Bumblebean or Bumblebrat (what Jinx would say). I love Kendra. Your number 1 fan.

I loved your book Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers. Our class is doing a novel study on your fantastic book! My favorite characters are Rumor, Jinx and Kendra. I like Rumor because is a dragon that breathes fire and has cool red scales. I like Kendra because she thinks for herself but not of herself. I like Jinx because she is brave and never gives up fighting. I liked how you came up with the Land of Een. It is one of a kind I will read your book at least ten times in my lifetime!

This book I could not put down! I think you should make a sequel, Mr. Fodi! And the drawings give them character too! I liked it when all the whispers came out of the Box! It was enchanting! Please write another book! PLEASE write a sequel! THANKS FOR WRITING IT!

Dona, age 10

 

I love this book, The Box of Whispers, because it’s so magical. My favourite characters are Kendra because she is magical, Oki because he is cute, and Jinx because she is so powerful. This book is magical and adventurous.

Bella, age 10

 

Kendra Kandlestar books are amazing to me because they are adventurous and mysterious and very exciting because you will never know what’s going to happen next.

Joshua, age 9

 

I love these books. I cannot wait for the next one! My mom and I read them every night and we are on book four already! My favorite part is in the Box of Whispers when Kendra opens the box and sets the whispers free.
