About the Author

Stephanie Robinson lives with her husband in a quiet town, though it is not as quaint as Ashpot. After teaching fifth grade for almost fifteen years, she is now enjoying her role as a school media specialist. One of the many benefits of her job is that she learns something new every day. When Stephanie isn't working, she spends her time creating stories, getting lost in books, and traveling to new places.

I bought this book as a gift for my neighbor's daughter and she really enjoyed it. I decided to read it for myself and found it intriguing and suspenseful. I then purchased several more for my nieces and nephews. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to purchase a book for a 4th-6th grade child.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Fairday Morrow and the Talking Library by Jessica Haight and Stephanie Robinson is a wonderful adventure and magical mystery story, the second in the series, where readers are taken to Begonia House in the opening scene. Thurston Begonia is no more and the local librarians are shocked to discover that a rare collection of artifacts will be donated to the Ashpot Library. Fairday Morrow has recently moved to Ashpot, Connecticut with her family, and her parents have bought Begonia House, which is supposed to be full of surprises. The kids in the school keep asking about it and Fairday’s parents decide to throw a Halloween party. Fairday and her friend, Lizzy Mackerville, plan a book themed party. Along with Marcus and the DMS (Detective Mystery Squad), they discover notes written in riddles and come across the Talking Library. Now they have to find the bookworm that is eating all the words and destroying the books. Will they succeed? This book is filled with adventure, magic, and fantasy, and will leave young readers intrigued by the strange happenings. The story is fast paced and will keep readers on their toes, wanting to know what is going to happen next. The plot is unique, imaginative, creative, and fresh and I like how the authors bring the written word, grammar, books, and libraries alive. The illustrations add to the appeal of the book and it is a good read for all those kids who love mysteries. The characters are interestingly portrayed and the concepts will not only encourage children to read, but will make them more imaginative and adventurous in their thinking and creativity.

Have you ever met a bookworm that eats words in a book? If not, now is your chance. Pick up a copy of FAIRDAY MORROW AND THE TALKING LIBRARY by Authors Jessica Haight and Stephanie Robinson and help Fairday and friends solve the mystery of Begonia House. From the very beginning we are on an adventure with Fairday, Lizzie, and Marcus, the DMS (Detective Mystery Squad) to discover the meaning of notes written in riddles about words being lost and a bookworm and something about shoes that Fairday keeps receiving. Will the DMS solve the mystery in time to save the books, or will the bookworm win and destroy all the books. How horrible to not have books to read. FAIRDAY MORROW AND THE TALKING LIBRARY is such a fun read. And I was right there with the DMS, trying to solve the mystery. I bet you will be too. The authors have just the right amount of spookiness in the story. The idea of books being eaten by a bookworm has given me a new definition for the word “bookworm.” I always thought it meant a person who read a lot, but in this story we meet a new sort of bookworm. And, how about a Halloween party with guests dressed as … I’m not telling. This novel is perfect for school classrooms and libraries, as well as your own library. Recommended.

What a fun and creative adventure! The characters kept me very involved in the story. I was intrigued with their detective skills and how they analyzed what was going on around them. I loved the way the characters all worked together to solve the mystery and this showed how important friendships are. It held my interest all the way through and I look forward to the next journey that these detectives will be on. Beautiful illustrations as well.

The mystery continues. I thought the followup to The Secret Files of Fairday Morrow was excellent. The DMS was on the case to save the written word. I loved that the Begonia House was still full of surprises and they jumped right into the next mystery. I liked the fact that they had to decide whether or not to put their trust in a spider who led them to a secret passage. The riddles they had to solve where brain teasers and challenging to figure out. The world they created was filled with interesting characters and elements that kept me guessing. Learning about the Talking Library and how it works intrigued me and the DMS had a great weight on their shoulders trying to save stories. This was a well-paced story- it never felt rushed- I just wanted to keep knowing more. Fairday Morrow and the Talking library is spooky without being scary and it kept me on the edge of my seat.

This is a great book to immerse yourself in and let your imagination go free to roam. The kids in the story formed their own squad to solve a unique mystery. The adventure takes them to magical places and puts them in the middle of all types of situations where unraveling the clues moves them forward. There is fun in trying to solve the riddles along with the characters. The story is told from the kids perspective and the dialog is perfect. This book is great for every young reader, parents and everyone who loves a good yarn.

There are so many magical concepts in this story to inspire kids to fall in love with reading - and words. Figuring out riddles is a big part of solving the mystery and it's fun to follow Fairday and friends in a race to solve them before books are lost. But not all is fun. They must beware of things that lurk in shadows and get their punctuation just right (love this!). This is Fairday's most complicated case to solve yet in a world where she does not know who to trust, so she must trust herself - and her friends - to survive. Kids will eat up the words in Fairday's new adventure in this inventive, magical mystery that keeps you on your toes. Can you guess your way through to solve the puzzles? And can Fairday and her friends add up the clues in time to save books? You'll have to read it to find out!
