We’re excited to host the virtual launch of The Book of Fatal Errors, a tale of friendship, magic, and eternal life, an evocative and witty middle-grade fantasy--by local favorite--award-winning author Dashka Slater!
"A fun, emotionally driven fairy story...an excellent readalike for The Spiderwick Chronicles...recommended for any young fantasy fans."-- School Library Journal
Rufus doesn't just make mistakes - he makes fatal errors. Clumsy and awkward, he feels entrapped by his teasing classmates and their constant laughter. But now it is summer. Rufus is free. He roams the wildlands of his grandfather's mysterious homestead, blissfully unaware of the danger up ahead.
And there is much danger. Rufus and his snooty cousin Abigail soon become entangled in the tantalizing world of the feylings, mischievous fairly-like creatures desperate to find their way home. In helping the feylings, Rufus tumbles down a dark path rich with age-old secrets and difficult truths. Any move he makes might be his final fatal error.
Or perhaps, his most spectacular beginning.
