"This fantasy quest starring Peter Nimble–an unfortunate, eyeless orphan
turned master thief who ends up on an impossible journey to save a lost
kingdom–is truly charming in a delightfully old-fashioned way."

— Meghan G.

Description


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.
"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 bestseller The Time Traveler's Wife
