Publisher's Summary

Even though they attend a school of gifted students in New York City, child geniuses Louise Mayer and her twin sister Jillian have always felt alone in the world, isolated by their brilliance. Shortly before their ninth birthday, they make an amazing discovery. They're not alone. Their real mother was astronaut Esme Shenske and their father was the famous inventor, Leonardo Dufae. They have an older sister, Alexander, living on the planet of Elfhome, and four siblings still in cryogenic storage at the fertility center. There's only one problem: The frozen embryos are scheduled to be destroyed within six months. The race is on to save their baby brother and sisters. As a war breaks out on Elfhome and riots start in New York City, the twins use science and magic to plow over everything standing in their way. But when they come face to face with an ancient evil force, they're soon in over their heads in danger.

In some ways, this is one of the best in the serie

First, it will help to know that this one takes place almost exclusively on earth, and actually begins before Tinker. If you had to read it before any of the others, you could, but why? It covers a longer timeline, and so ends just before the end of Elfhome, suggesting that the two storylines are about to merge. Oh, the possibilities.
Tanya Eby does a really great job, especially with Joy and the babies' voices. I look forward to future books in this series.

Very well done

I listen while commuting. This book was a problem as I had trouble stopping when each commute was finished. I have been greatly enjoying this series!

I missed the Tinker story but this was really good

Now I have to wait for another book and I really thought this was the end. That is my only complaint! This was a great book and a very easy read!

These impish twins and their adventures are a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to the next one!

Surprisingly, works for all ages

So, the 4th book in a very adult series might not seem like an obvious choice to listen to with your kids, but Wood Sprites is not a direct follow-up to the rest of the Elfhome series, and you should definitely let your kids listen.
Wood Sprites follows the adventures of Tinker's 9-year-old twin sisters on Earth. This story actually begins several months before the events in the first book of the series. The action runs parallel to the first three books, and by the end, has caught up to the end of book three.
Anyway, I very much enjoyed this book- It's silly and fun, but it also packs an emotional punch. My children, (5 & 7) love it too. They've listened to the audio book multiple times, and also regularly ask me to read to them from this book (Seriously. Almost every day.)

Excellent

The dialogue was very lively, an amazing mixture of outward social chatter & interior insights. While the girls seemed unstoppable the continual view of Louise’s worried musings & fears grounds the story. However it looks like a long wait for a continuation of the adventure. Highly recommended.

Extreamly, awesomly, wonderful story!

If it were possible I would rate "Wood Sprites" a ten. It is extreamly entertaining, well written, funny, heart warming, heart wrenching, adventure that adds delightful layers to the Elfhome saga. A must read addition to the series. I am waiting impatianly for the next release!

Greatly enjoyed

Excellently read, and the story is lovely. I started this resenting that its not about Tinker, and ending totally on Team Twin.
