Gavaldon, also referred to as "The Woods Beyond", was the hometown of Sophie and Agatha, and where all of the Readers live. 


Graves Hill is Gavaldon's graveyard and the property on which Agatha, Reaper and Callis live. This is where a few main events, including the beginning of the story. It is unknown whether any other villages exist beyond it, but it could be possible.

Mr. Deauville's Storybook Shop, located between Battersby's Bakery and the Pickled Pig Pub, is the town's source of fairytales.
