Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Surprise, I Have 3 Eyes! by Jenine Lori is an enchanting story about Joey who would go out to play and come back home to speak about his journeys away. His friends had beautiful wings like the colors of May and some of them were fabulous creatures with big eyes and some had big warts. His friends were all different shapes and sizes and they would dance in parades, bounce, and fly. Though his friends had hidden places where they would stay, Joey always knew where to find them. He could always play with them, even when he was sick. None of his friends believed him and he could not understand why he was the only one who could see these creatures.
