And the winner is… Jessica Erbe. She put blue socks on her dog, Zeke, and read Ink Heart by Cornelia Funke to him. Zeke likes the parts with Gwin, Dustfinger’s pet. Zeke says, “Keep reading Silvertongue, I want Gwin to come out of the book to play with me.”
Jessica was able to pick out a book from the prize bookshelf, she chose Fablehaven by Brandon Mull.
She was introduced to Fablehaven after her mother had read The Candy War by Brandon Mull which was the Rochester Reads 2008 Junior Title and noticed additional books by the author. Jessica fell in love with the stories and there are now five books in the series. She highly recommends them to other young readers and likes Fablehaven even better than Harry Potter.
