Epic Adventure

Peter Nimble and his Fantastic Eyes cannot merely be called a story.

Peter Nimble and his Fantastic Eyes cannot merely be called a story.

It is in fact, an EPIC ADVENTURE! From start to finish the book grabs you by the, well, "eyes" and won't let go. All at once it reminded me of some of the best adventure epics - Peter Pan, Percy Jackson, and The Princess Bride. And while those may seem lofty comparisons, the truth is that Peter, oh so nimbly, rests right alongside them. This is book practically begs to be read aloud - orphans, master thieves, sword fights, and shipwrecks. Really , what more could you ask for? Magical eyes? Messages in a bottle? Mysterious haberdasher? Yep, it has those too, all wrapped up in a charming story filled with fun and a little wordplay thrown in for good measure. It will absolutely be one of my first classroom read alouds this fall. The Newberry Committee had better be paying some serious attention to this one!

It was ok

This book was ok. I thought it would have been better. It was sort of strange and I didn't really believe any of it. I know it's fantasy and that's not real, but this was sort of, out there a little. And it was sort of sad too.

    Great Tale of Adventure

    This would be a great read-aloud book for parents and kids. Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes is a great tale of adventure that spans a wonderfully imaginative world. Death and destruction are not skipped over in this story and there is quite a bit of fighting, but what Peter and his sidekick Sir Tode are fighting for is worth it. Peter is a humble character; even if he is the best thief the world has ever known.

    The creativity in the story lasts the entire way through. There was never a dull moment as each chapter left me wanting to know what would happen next. This is a story for the imagination as nearly everything would be impossible in our reality. If you can suspend your disbelief and not question why or how the story goes, it will be a completely enjoyable ride.
