More About Lee Edward Fodi
I've always believed that magic hides in special places. As a child, people would often stare at my bright red hair, which was very, very bright indeed. Unfortunately, I developed a bad habit of making up rhymes about all of them, and they soon became funny characters. I didn't have much time to think about being different; fanciful lyricisms danced in my head, and no one was safe! Since then, I've come to believe that storytelling has the power to inspire a deep love of language and learning. Words tripping off the tongue in somersaults that stick to your thoughts like taffy-- those are the things that stay forever in the mind. I've lived in many special places: on a farm, in a city skyscraper, on a tropical beach, and in the beautiful country of France. Now I live in northern California, between the redwood forests and the sea. Even though I'm an adult, I'm still as silly as ever. Many nice words have been used to describe my books, such as fun, engaging, delightful, and whimsical. Some folks say that I deliver timeless messages of love for kids and parents to share again and again; this makes me very happy. I hope that you'll enjoy my stories, too. Captivating children with language is something that I believe in, and I strive to live my life with this always. --Stephanie Lisa Tara www.StephanieLisaTara.com firstname.lastname@example.org

Loved the Book Jul 15, 2008
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 find the idea interesting because everyone kind of has a box of whispers of there own. Some people choose to open it and some choose to keep it locked.
Love Kendra Kandlestar Jun 19, 2008
I've read Kendra Kandlestar And The Box Of Whispers, and I thought it was one of the BEST books ever! I would LUV to read Kendra Kandlestar And The Door To Unger!
I like this book because I like fantasy and adventure Dec 11, 2007
Kendra is different from the other Eens, because she was the only one who told her secret. It was scary when they were locked inside the cage. Kendra is just like Hiccup, a normal person outside, but a hero inside. I think that it would've been very scary to go into the dragon's lair. Kendra is smart and brave. I would rate this book 10/10 and recommend it to people who like adventure and fantasy.
Lots of Adventure Dec 11, 2007
This book is about a brave Een girl named Kendra Kandlestar who is eleven years old. She lives with her Uncle Griffinskitch in the town of Faun's End. Eens are magical creatures who live behind the magic curtain which keeps out their enemies.
In the beginning of the book, the Een's greatest treasure "The Box of Whispers" gets stolen. An unusual group of 5 characters are sent out to find the box and Kendra and her best friend Oki somehow get included in the group. The find the box they must go on a journey outside the magic curtain.
I liked this book because it has lots of adventure and it kept me involved. I didn't want to stop reading. I would give this book 10 giant carrots out of 10! I would recommend it to anyone 7 and over because my mom liked it too.
