Saving Fable

Crown. (Talespinners: Bk. 1). Sept. 2019. 384p. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9780525646686.
Gr 3-7–Welcome to Fable, where all story characters attend Protagonist Preparatory to learn skills in such classes as “How To Get Captured and Narrowly Escape,” “Love by Page 12,” “I Thought You Were Dead,” and “Weaponry,” all to impress you, the Dear Reader. In this amazingly detailed world where every character is hoping to catch the eye of an author and be in a story of their own, Indira Story’s lifelong dream is to be a protagonist. However, she ends up on the side character track instead. This does not deter Indira, and she soon discovers that it is up to her and her friends to save the school. Fast-paced, action-packed chapters will draw in reluctant and fervent readers alike. Reintgen directly addresses the Dear Reader to vividly describe plots, scenes, and feelings. While some readers may not be familiar with the iconic names of professors such as Fitzwilliam Darcy, Alice, Odysseus, and Romeo Montague, others will delight in how well they teach their respective classes. Thankfully, this is the first in a series in which every character is brimming with potential, just waiting to be picked up and read.
VERDICT  Dear Reader, Fable is waiting for you to bring it to life. A solid purchase for all collections.
