Leggi questo articolo in Italiano

Peter Nimble is a blind orphan since a raven took away his eyes before a sailor could have saved the newborn Peter.

By using his other senses Peter growns into the most skilled thief of the world, but his talent is taken advantage of by a cruel man, until Peter meets a strange haberdasher from whom Peter steal a box containing a fantastic treasure.

This is how Peter adventure begins: he will try to save a vanished kingdom by his skills and bravery.

The novel is full of adventure and absolutely peculiar characters: Auxier has build a magical world and a main character impossible not to like. The drawback of the novel is that some elements are quite foreseeable and not innovative.

Overall the novel is nice, imaginative and well written.

  1. Io l’ho adorato e appena possibile conto di leggere il nuovo di Auxier.
    Per me avrebbe meritato l’Andersen l’anno scorso, molto più del vincitore.
