Reviewed for Readers Favorite by Samantha Coville The Mushroom Patch is the home of the long awaited Spider Web Scramble. This exciting race takes place once every three years on a specific full moon and challenges fairies to complete the course. This year, the stars are joining in on the fun and finding the star etched with your name and proving you have a pure heart means you get one wish granted! Teamwork, friendship, and magic abound during this celebratory event, but not all is well in the Mushroom Patch. There's something wrong ahead, but the fairies won't be deterred. Or will they? First off, Spider Web Scramble is actually the third book in The Mischief Series by Amanda M. Thrasher, but you can follow along just fine starting here, and you don't feel like you've missed anything too major. Although, after reading this creative and endearing tale, you may want to go back to the first two anyway! The childhood magic we all love so much seems to spill off the pages as the friendly, lovable little fairies work together to complete a race that puts our boring marathons to shame. And the descriptive passages here are masterfully written, bringing the Mushroom Patch to life and instantly pulling you into a colorful, magical world you'll want to visit. You can either have your child read this chapter book all on their own, as they will surely enjoy every page, or you could make this a bedtime ritual, reading a section every night and leaving your child anxiously awaiting the following part the next night. This is a wonderful tale that the whole family could enjoy together so gather round and read on!

Amanda M. Thrasher’s Spider Web Scramble is an interesting third entry in the Mischief Series, a blend of fantasy and sci-fi for young readers. The Spider Web Scramble is held at the Mushroom Patch, located deep in the forest, an event that takes place on the fifth full moon of every third year. But on this particular occasion, the excitement of the fairies becomes even more powerful as they are informed that the stars will be coming down and that whoever could beat the clock and locate the star with their name on it will have their wishes granted. Only, there is a magic trap that no one knows about; the scene is set for a game that is as exciting as it can be dangerous. Although Spider Web Scramble is written for young readers, it has lessons for adult readers as well. Readers will be introduced to the art of teamwork as the force that beats the odds. The story is beautiful and although it features fairies and an unusual magical setting, the dialogue, and the emotions it evokes are so real that readers will easily relate. Lilly, Boris, and Jack are very likeable characters and readers immediately are curious as to whether their wishes will be granted by the stars — or if their hearts are pure enough for them to locate their stars in the first place. Amanda M. Thrasher’s writing is beautiful and imaginative. I loved how she creates a task and then puts an obstacle in the way of the characters. Mademoiselle Francesca and the other cast of characters are compelling. Yes, this installment in the series offers a whole new world of magic for young readers to revel in.

SPIDER WEB SCRAMBLE AMANDA M THRASHER Every 3 years the fairies have a spider web scramble. In order to include Pearl there is a no fly rule in place. With looming danger ahead should they put off the scramble? No they persevere as a team of friends and get through the course. Back are Lily, Boris, Jack and Pearl for more fairy fun. Written in the same style as the other Mischief books which center around friendship, co-operation, diversity and doing your best, Ms. Thrasher has not disappointed. All children will enjoy this fun tale. I give it 5 spider webs for a fun read. We look forward to reading more from this exceptional author.
