It is entirely possible that you have heard stories like this one before. You know the type: tales of high adventure, where you read about little folk with brave hearts seeking some magic treasure in lands treacherous and unknown. Where danger lurks around every crook and bend in the trail. Where creatures more fierce than your darkest nightmare prowl amidst even darker shadows. And where, they say, sometimes heroes are born.
Well, in that regard, this tale is no
different. But what does set this story apart is one tiny frightening thing. I suppose it’s a thing that might not seem frightening at all to you at first. At least not as terrifying as some of the things in those other stories, like an ancient hag, hunchbacked and cackling with three crooked fangs, or a goblin with scaly gray skin and one yellow eye that glints like a bright gold coin in a dungeon’s dim corner. No, this tiny thing doesn’t seem dangerous at all compared to the fiendish villains in those other stories.
And now you wonder what this thing can be. Can you guess? No? Then let me tell you.
It is, believe it or not, a secret.
Kendra Kandelstar and the Box of Whispers
Lee Edward Födi has created a magical world for children. And I suspect they will be enthralled, entranced and want more. Based on the ending of this book, I believe we'll see more of Kendra Kandlestar and her friends in another installment. Armchair Interviews says: Bring on another Kendra Kandlestar book, Mr. Fodi. We're waiting.

An Enchanting Tale
Lee Edward Födi has found the magic elixir of children's stories. Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers, Fodi's second book, is a wonderfully funny, engaging tale of magical people and creatures, adventure and courage. And who can resist a good adventure that has an enormous red dragon?

Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers
This book would appeal to a variety of readers who like fantasy, adventure, or a strong story line. It is recommended as an oral reading choice for classes or individuals. Kendra Kandlestar and the Box of Whispers would be an excellent vehicle to promote discussion on a number of issues and would be a good purchase for school, public or personal libraries.
