I had the great fortune of reading Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes! As a baby, Peter was orphaned and set afloat in a basket, blinded by a raven who had pecked out his eyes. Peter Nimble was brought into the world of thievery. The characters of the story bring added life and intrigue. Come meet Professor Cake, Miss Molasses, Sir Tode, The Missing Ones and Peg; learn about the Night Patrol. Read how Peter comes in possession of the Fantastic Eyes.
There are obstacles, excitement and mystery, enough to carry you into the world of Peter Nimble and the world of the Fantastic Eyes. There are three pairs of magical eyes that take Peter on a journey of adventure and discovery to his true identity.
Jonathan Auxier has crafted a tale of unforgettable adventure, you will feel you, too, have a pair of the Fantastic Eyes.
