In a Journey to Appleville six neighborhood children set off on a quest to get to Appleville in hopes of accomplishing their dreams and goals. The kids were told it was a perfect place, filled with all kinds of apples, and most importantly the Appleville fairy. The Appleville fairy was rumored to help children reach their dreams and goals and when they did, she would give them a golden apple.
The six children traveled across the land on their bikes towards Appleville. They travel past a bar

I was really excited to read this book when I heard about it. The title grabbed my attention, and the concept sounded like it could be encouraging to children. After reading the book, however, I can honestly say that it was a highly unusual way. It seemed rather incomplete, in truth. I felt that if the book had offered more depth, it could have won me over. The potential for something wonderful is there.

My son (12) and I sat down together to evaluate this book. Although he is older than the intended audience he enjoys reviewing books aimed at all ages. His first comment was that although he could relate to living in a "quiet neighborhood" he didn't like that the book starts out by saying the kids had to go to another town in order to "accomplish our goals". He also said the eyes looked creepy on four of the six children. The fears the children state are not all fears, some just want to improve ...more

I tried to read this book to my grandson and he was just not interested. It has a good concept but it doesn't go far enough to explain about the golden apples. The children all told the fairy about a fear they had and she gave them a golden apple, then they left Appleville. It has the until next time ending. That would not make me want to pick up the next book. There were things happening in the story that really had not purpose, they just happened. If I did not know better, I would have thought ...more

I just flat out didn't like this story. It was overly long and is missing a conclusion. I think it would be much better as a told story rather than a written one. It's clunky in the reading, almost like it's being told by an overactive 5 year old. I am also not a fan on the illustrations. They are old fashioned and boring.

I had a good time reading this story. It is a nice story of conquering your fears and doing things together as friends. This is well illustrated. These six children go on a quest to a town an hour away to find out what happens in this town. They get to eat apples and meet a fairy and learn how to work together. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion.

This had a good concept, but its not one for me, I wasn't a huge fan of the images and the story was a bit weak compared to some other books available in the market at the moment, its a shame as it does have a good idea, just not executed as well as it could, and should have been in my opinion.
