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