Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes is the utterly beguiling tale of a ten-year-old blind orphan who has been schooled in a life of thievery. One fateful afternoon, he steals a box from a mysterious traveling haberdasher—a box that contains three pairs of magical eyes. When he tries the first pair, he is instantly transported to a hidden island where he is presented with a special quest: to travel to the dangerous Vanished Kingdom and rescue a people in need. Along with his loyal sidekick—a knight who has been turned into an unfortunate combination of horse and cat—and the magic eyes, he embarks on an unforgettable, swashbuckling adventure to discover his true destiny.

I think my mood affected this one a bit. It was a fun a read, but it took me a week (which is a long time for me) to read and I was just getting kind of bored by the end.

It reminded me a bit of The Phantom Tollbooth with its random and amusing bits. I loved that the story was a little bit out there sometimes. It's definitely something I would have enjoyed when I was 12 or 13.

The Nutshell: Peter Nimble was a fun read, but I don't think I got quite the enjoyment out of it that I would've had I been in a different mood.
