If you want a really easy good read then don't
worry about buying it for a child
buy it for yourself.
I am proud to admit I really enjoyed
reading this book!
I enjoyed it so much that I picked up the 2nd book
in the series straight away.
I can't wait to read more.
The story is meant to be for ages 7-10 and is
more written towards a girl reading it.
The fantastic thing about these set of books
is they use hobbies and crafts as a positive
that can help us in situations.
All of the girls have moved into a set of houses
that are set around a small park.
In the park they find a clubhouse which they start using.
Each of them has a favorite hobby/craft
and they start spending time in the clubhouse
doing their crafts.
During this time they each receive tokens with each of their
creative talents on.
They put them together and it opens a gateway to a magical land.
The magical land is under threat and they use their talents to
try and save it.
This book empowers girls to be proud of their talents.
It takes something simple and makes it into
a beautiful story.
I think most girls will really enjoy the story.
It is fun and exciting with a good mix of characters
It brings in giant bears and vampire spiders
but above all working with their talents they can help
to defeat the evil powers.
I myself enjoyed this short story.
The book is a 126 pages long and each of them is packed full
of fun and interest.
It's well worth purchasing!
I received a copy of the book to review, however all opinions express are my own and no monies were received.
This book I give a not so good rating. The gist of the story was difficult to understand for me, so I believe any girls seven and up will not be able to understand the plot correctly. I don't understand of the sisters just moved to the area and suddenly had best friends that they knew everything about, or if one of their friends got a tail every time water touched her, I just don't understand. Plus, the cover pictures are terrible. I really didn't enjoy this book at all. Then again, I am twelve, so it may not have been as magical to me as some younger girls would envision it.

The girls quickly discover these trinkets are actually keys that, when joined together in a circle, form a portal into another world - a world that is dying. The Wellspring of Magic has been cut off at its source, and the plants and animals that were nourished by the magic are quickly losing their strength. In their new world, the girls meet Eidermoss of the Folk, a green-skinned creature who tells the girls that each one is a princess possessing her own strong magic, and only they, working together, can reopen the Wellspring and save the land. With no one to guide them in their quest, the girls struggle to develop and control their new-found powers and save a land from dangers they haven't even begun to understand.
"Creative Girls Club: Wellspring of Magic" is a cute and imaginative story, but it has many problems. There's no explanation of the mysterious "Foundation" that maintained the empty houses for many years, or the unknown sender of the talismans. Once in the new world, the girls face some challenges, but their experiences there are virtually conflict-free. The Folk warn them about the Wellspring Guardians and river monsters, but neither poses a danger to the girls. Out of 118 pages, there's no hint of a dark side to the new land until page 95. The story involves a lot of somewhat boring travel to find the Wellspring, followed by a short but exciting and fairly well-conceived ending. This book is also a product tie-in for a service called "Creative Girls Club," and seems to have been written for the sole purpose of drawing kids to the club's website. You may not want to give this book to a child unless you're prepared to fend off the begging for pre-packaged craft projects that may follow.
