When an unexpected lizzard keeps Aaron's mother away longer than planned, he sets out to find her. What the 12 year old voiceless boy finds instead is great danger, as he becomes the prisoner of Miss Grackle, wicked proprietor of the ramshackle Half-a-Moon Inn. This captivating tale beckons to be read aloud as it keeps kids wide-eyed and on the edges of their seats, begging for more.

The Half a moon Inn is about a mute boy who's mother leaves for craftsbury. She told him never to leave the house but he did anyway and was captured by a mean lady but you would have to read the book for yourself to find out what happens in the end.The book is great for reports or just for a book to read for the fun of it.

You should read this book because it is mysterious and full of adventure. It is very exciting. I couldn't stop reading more because it was very suspenseful in the middle of the book. It is a very good book for all ages.

My book club read this not too long ago and the everyone thought it was great for those who do not read much and those who want adventure in the books they read.

My son hates reading and he was late preparing a 4th grade book report. I decided to help him out and we would take turns reading. I think I read more because we were both so captivated. I think it made him appreciate the things he has and it was a riveting story.

I remember doing a book report on this book when I was in 5th grade. Man did it creep me out. The thought of being kidnapped and not being able to speak is terrifying. The evil inn keeper is worst of all. This is a good book for anyone, but is especially geared for younger readers. I give it 4 stars, it was excellent!
