The book The Night Gardener was a very interesting book. This book was sad, happy, and scary.
I loved this book so much and might read it again. The two main characters are brother and sister, who need a place to stay. I think there parents died but, I am not sure. The brother and sister find a house with a family. In the family there is a older brother and, younger sister a, mom and dad. But there is something strange about this family but you will have to read the book to find out!

There is a freaky house with a big tree that’s dark and scary. Molly and Kip come and try to cut down the tree and Constant (the wife) stopped them. Why? Read to find out what happens next. I love this book because it gives you bits by bits secrets. This book is great for kids that are ready for a scare. PLEASE read this book…if you dare.

Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes… is Fantastic!

November 21st, 2011 by

Imagine a world where your traveling companion is a knighted half-cat-half-horse creature, you’ve journeyed to a hidden island by way of magic, and you’ve encountered a giant talking dogfish while sailing — but you couldn’t see a single one of these things!

That describes just a few of the adventures in Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes by Jonathan Auxier!

What else should you know about brave and orphaned main character? Peter Nimble was blinded by a raven when he was just an infant, and he became a thief out of necessity to survive. And since his senses of hearing and smell were far superior to those of any ordinary thief, Peter Nimble became the greatest thief in the world at just age ten!

Disclaimer: Kidsmomo does not support any form of thievery unless perpetrated by fictional protagonists to fictional bad guys in fictional lands.

One day, Peter steals a box containing six amazing objects — or really, three pairs of fantastic eyes! Little does he know that this box was destined for him:

“The first pair was molded from the finest gold dust. The second had been carved from slick, black onyx. And the final pair was made of two uncut emeralds — the purest jewels he had ever touched.”

So what do these fantastic eyes do? Well, you’ll just have to pick up a copy of the book to find out!

And I promise you’ll find at least a few of these things in the book: sword fighting, an army of talking ravens, a lost princess, an evil wannabe king, blood-thirsty sea creatures, poisonings, and mysterious riddles… JUST KIDDING! I totally lied. All of those things (and much, much more!) are included in Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes, so pick up a copy and Peter Nimble will steal your heart!
