I received this book through LibraryThing Member Givewaway for an honest review and I'm glad I did because it was a wonderful magical adventure! Jasper and Lily didn't realize that their Uncle Ebb's bedtime stories were about a magical realm until years later when they find themselves transported to the Moon Realm, a fantastical place filled with strange and magical creatures. The author's world-building is rich and imaginative and I think most readers will be swept away into the adventure and the illustrations were lovely. Looking forward to reading the next book! ( )

I received an electronic copy of this book in exchange for a review.

This book is very detailed. Perhaps even exquisitely detailed. However, it suffers from a weakness as a result, which is that it's very difficult to get through. I don't need to know the name and species and description of every bird to follow a story, but here, the author seems convinced that all of it is necessary. Well, it's certainly gorgeous, but I couldn't finish it. Too dense with detail.

The story's about a girl who accidentally gets into her uncle's fairy tale world, and finds that they're fighting a war while she needs to get home. ( )

This book was a great book that I think all ages would enjoy. It is a story about two children who thought that the bedtime stories that they were told as children were just fairy tales. As they progress through the story, we learn that there is much more that their grandfather told them then they realize, and it wasn't all just in his imagination. While this may be a bit long for some readers, it is packed with adventures, and every time you turn around, the story has progressed to another realm with a new cast of characters, I found myself addicted to see where they would end up next!

This is just an adorable adventure. I may not be a child... but I did feel as though I was a child snuggled under my blankets with a flash light reading this magical adventure. I love how it is family oriented as well. I love how you are never expecting what happens next. Just adorable. ( )

Book description
"The Chronicles of Narnia meets Game of Thrones"

These aren't your parents' bedtime tales.

Telling a wicked good tale is a talent, but making it sound believable is a gift. Even as young teens, Lily and Jasper Winter still love their uncle's bedtime tales. But they don't believe, as they once did, that the tales he spins are true, or that his fantastic paintings are from places he's actually been . . . that would be childish.

Now Uncle Ebb is missing.

Lily and Jasper are supposed to stay out of trouble while their parents search Ebb’s study, but his mansion is full of distractions. A Tesla generator thrums in the basement. Prismatic electrimals drift lazily around walls resembling underwater reefs. Then Oscar, a fuchsia-plumed flying seahorse, leads the siblings to a secret room, where the mystery of their uncle’s disappearance deepens. They’ve never seen Ebb without his golden necklace, yet there it is, with a curious coin dangling from it.

That night, Lily's careful examination of the coin yields unexpected results. To her surprise, it transports her to the Moon Realm, the setting of Uncle Ebb's bedtime tales. Lily is thrilled to meet the horse-sized, leonine Rinn and the lunamancers of Dain. But something is wrong. The inhabitants of the moons are no longer allies, and the heroic characters from the tales either don’t exist or are known only as myths. Worse, one of the moons appears to be dead, haunted by an evil villain named Wrengfoul. And no one seems to know what’s become of Ebb.

Illustrated by Carolyn Arcabascio. Volume One of the The Moon Realm Series.
