What the Critics Say

“Jonathan Auxier’s strange and inventive debut, Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes, is a beautiful adventure told in a dashing and assured voice. It’s Little Nemo in Slumberland meets Oliver Twist. I enjoyed it tremendously.” (Audrey Niffenegger, author of the best seller The Time Traveler’s Wife)

    Story
    "An Entertaining Tale!"

    Peter Nimble and his Fantastic Eyes is a charming, sometimes appropriately frightening and even gruesome children's tale. The author is willing to take the book to some of the dark places adults don't always want to believe great children's fiction should go and in doing so, with both wit and originality, he creates genuine drama. The book certainly owes a debt to similar tales of the fantastic that have come before it yet from it's premise to it's conclusion, it has a personality all it's own. It's as clever and resourceful as Peter Nimble himself.

    Michael Page's reading is absolutely superb.

    "Beautiful Tale"
    What did you love best about Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes?

    I loved the magical parts of the story, where I didn't really know what magic was taking place until more of the story unfolded..which is the best, because it takes a great writer to do this effectively


    What other book might you compare Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes to and why?

    The Whatnot or The Peculiar, Both fantastic books that everyone, at every age should own & read over & over


    Which character – as performed by Michael Page – was your favorite?

    He did an outstanding performance and the range of voices for all characters combined to make a better story. Of course Peter had a courageous voice, and the ravens were stoic, the frog was subtle, and the villain was unlikable.

    "Absolutely Fantastic"

    Truly remarkable. Jonathan Auxier is a wonderful story teller and Michael Page does an amazing job bringing the epic adventure to life. I highly recommend this audiobook especially if you happen to have little ones to enjoy it with.

    ""Fantastic" story couldn't hold my attention."

    Although a fantasy, the story and characters were a little too "out there" for me. That's all folks. Hello hello

    "Disappointing"

    The basic premise of this story seemed very promising, but I was disappointed throughout -I was tempted to stop listening but hate to do that. The performance was quite good, but I couldn't help focusing on how weak the story was. Unfortunate, this could have been great fun.
