20 thoughts on “Class Read-A-Loud: Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes

  1. I like three parts about the book. Firstly, I like the part when the author described Killer. Killer is an old dog that lost one of his legs. Secondly, I like the part where the author told us that Peter had an amazing skill. Peter’s skill is to smell richness. Thirdly, I like the part where Mr. Shamus opened the box and found out that it was eggs. Mr. Shmus thought that it was gold or something valuable at first. Lastly, I feel awful for Peter that he was forced to ”burgle”. I also feel amused about the part where Mr. Shamus opened the box and it was eggs. At last I feel exited to hear the next part of the story.

  2. I like the story ” Peter Nimble And His Fantastic Eyes ” by Jonathan Auxier for a lot of reasons. Firstly, I like the storyline. Peter Nimble is the main charecter. He is a blind theif. He does not want to be a theif though. He is forced to. When he was a baby he was motherd by a cat. But when he was found under a porch an angry bartender threw him and the cat in a sack and into the ocean. He maneged to escape and find a basket floating but the cat was not so lucky. Sailers found him in the basket with his eyes pecked out by birds. When he was three a grumpy old man named Mr. Shaimus found him and tricked him into coming to his house and start working. Mr. Shaimus made him a master theif. He has to work at night and in the day. One morning when Peter was theiving in a big crowd, a habbadasher saw him and said things to guide him up to the front but each thing he said had somthing to do with theivory, such as ” Let him *pick* his way up to the front. I don’t think anyone caught on to the theif talk. Thats why nobody got mad at Peter. The habbadasher showed them a elixer and used Peter to smell a police officer to show all the bad smells of people go away. Even though it was a trick, Peter saw what the man was doing so he played along. When the actment of Peter was done, people were throwing coins all over the place. Peter walked up to the habbadasher and said ” Do you need any help sir?” the habbadasher was pleased with his kindness. He said to go and collect money from the people. But Peter had been caught. The habbadasher said ” And while your at it can you please put all the goods back into the pockets of the good people they came from. ” The habbadasher asked Peter to watch his cart while he went to the tavern. Peter said yes but when the habbadasher got into the tavern, Peter broke into the cart and stole a box insted of a sack of gold. When he got into the basement after sneaking by Killer, Mr. Shaimus’s old three legged dog he went to a dark corner and opened the box. He picked somthing out of the box and felt it. It was an egg. There were six eggs. But he knew something was special about these eggs. Mr. Shaimus came down with Killer. He tried to take the eggs but Peter said they were rotten. When Mr. Shaimus and Killer left, he craked one of the eggs open. Hw tried to eat it but he had to choke it back up. He felt the egg yolk it was hard. He craked them all open they were all hard. The narater said ” If someone had eyes and they saw it they would be smiling. Peter snuck out to do his theiving job. While he was trying to find the habbadasher and asked him abot the eggs, he heard a scream. He only heard that scream once before when the cat in the sack was screaming because it wa drowning. He heard it again and said ” Its coming from the stables.” He went to investigate. Thats where we left off. Secondly I liked the sparkle words. Some sparkle words were ” habbadasher”, ” Fantastic”, and ” theivory”. Thirdly, I liked how they described Peter Nimble And His Fantastic Eyes.” by Jonathan Auxier.

  3. In the first few chapters, I adored three particular parts of the audio book “Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes.” Firstly, I adored how Peter Nimble got his eyes plucked out. It was quit extraordinary when I heard his eyes were plucked out by a murder of crows. Also, Peter would wear bandages on his non eyes to cover the emptiness of his eyes. Secondly, I adored two main characters. One, of the characters are Peter Nimble, and he is a thief by force. Also, Mr. Shamus is a main character, he forces Peter to steal goodies from a salesman in order for him to live! Lastly, I adored how Killer was a character. Killer is Mr. Shamuses dog. Killer is an aged dog and only has four legs. So far, the book has been delightful. I feel exultant we get to hear the audio book “Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes.”

  4. The book Peter Nimble And His Fantastic Eyes is a great book. This book has many great
    parts and characters. One character, Peter Nimble is forced to steal to live. Also, Peter is blind but can smell anything that is precious. The main thing he has stole is some egg like objects Peter thinks they are very precious. Another character is Mr. Shamas. Mr.Shamas reminds me of a character from a different book called Series Of Unfortunate Events, the characters name is Count Olaf. Mr. Shamas forces Peter to steal for food. Also Mr. Shamas has a dog named Killer who guards Peters cellar. I love Jonathan Auxier’s book Peter Nimble And His Fantastic Eyes!

  5. The book Peter Nimble And His Fantastic Eyes is amazing so far because… Firstly, I like all the suspense. For example, sometimes it takes the writer a bit long to say what is going to happen in an exciting part. This leaves me on the edge of my seat wondering what will happen.

    Also, It’s nice how the writer can keep the story fun. This book always gets something new and exciting thrown in. the readers voice gives the story more life with his accent.

    Lastly, I think the story line is well written and very original. The story is something I’ve never heard anything like so it makes it more entertaining. Next time is see a Jonathan Auxier book I will defiantly buy it assuming its as good as Peter Nimble And His Fantastic Eyes. This book has made a good first impression on me and I can’t wait to continue reading.

  6. The story Peter Nimble And His Fantastic Eyes by Jonathan Auxier is a good story these are some parts and characters. Firstly there is Peter Nimble himself Peter is blind he got his eyes pecked out by crows. Peter is an orphan he was named by pirates he was miss named after a nursery rhyme. Peter is a thief he steals but he doesn’t want to steal and that’s were Mr. Shamus comes in. Mr. Shamus makes Peter steal and has a dog named Killer. Peter being blind has a really good nose one day when Peter was stealing he smelt something good a crowd he walked up and started pick pocketing everyone then he went to see what all the commotion was about there was a haberdasher (sales man) selling hat these hats will make you smell like nothing and you won’t stink like fish (they lived in a place that had a lot of fish). Then he said how about you little boy to Peter Peter said me and he said you are blind so that means you have good scent here smell this cops what does he smell like Peter played along he smells like fish what else stomach wind the crowd starts laughing. Officer put on this hat okay said the cop now what does he smell like where did he go I can’t smell his really he could but he was playing along. After the people buy hats they leave the haberdasher pays peter then Peter being a thief he sees a lock the haberdasher tells peter to watch his wagon Peter opens the lock after a while there is all the money peter grabs it but then his arm scraps on something it a wooden box Peter can other take the box he doesn’t know what’s in it it smells valuable. He decides to take the box he go’s home he knows Mr. Shamus will be made but he doesn’t know what’s in the box. He gets home hello worm (worm is his nick name) where’s the loot said Mr. Shamus here he give Mr. Shamus the coin the haberdasher gave his is that all he said yes and then the dog started barking and found the box Mr. Shamus opens the box and find eggs while at least these while make me a nice omelet no they are spoiled how do you know because I can smell them well your punishment is to smell them a bit longer Peter was hungry so he ate one egg gross theirs something in the egg he could not see so he went out to find the haberdasher and he had gone. That is it so far cant wait to finish the book.

When Peter was walking he smelled cinnamon buns so he stole them because he is a thief. The next part I liked was when the author described killer Mr. Shamus’s dog. Killer lost all of his four legs so I fell really bad for Killer. The next part I enjoyed was when the authorities gave Peter a name after he got his eyes pecked out by seagulls. When Peter got his eyes pecked out the authorities gave him a name which was called Peter Nimble I feel sad because Peter lost his eyes.

  9. I enjoyed three parts so far of the book Peter Nimble And His Fantastic Eyes by Jonathan Auxier. One reason I enjoyed the book is when Peter found six eggs. When Peter found the six eggs he did’nt know tjat eggs where in the box. The second reason I enjoyed the book so far is when killer tryed to eat the six eggs. When killer tried to eat the eggs Peter saw and told killer to ” go away.” The last reason I enjoyed the book is when Peter found out that they where six eyes. I enjoyed that part because Peter could put them in his eye sockets. I felt amused when Peter found out the the eggs where eyes.

  13. Here are four reasons why Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes is a good book. First, of all Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes is a good book because Peter’s eye’s got picked out by crows so he is blind.

  16. Peter Nimble and his fantastic eyes by Jonathan Auxier is a wonderful book. I highly recommend it. The storyline takes place in a little fish town. A boy by the name of Peter Nimble is the main character of this little tale. Peter is also being forced to steal by a man called Mr. Shamus. Peter is also blind birds pecked his eyes out. The main event so far is Peter stealing mysterious eggs that he can’t tell what is inside them.

  17. My first impression of the story ” Peter Nimble, and him amazing Eyes”.

    I thought that it was, interesting from what I have heard. So I basically think it was about a blind boy, I heard a part where he stole the “Odd Eggs”, After that I thought that I thought he was pretty sneaky. So that was my first impression.

  19. My three favourite parts of the first three chapters of the book,”Peter Nimble And His Fantastic Eyes”. Firstly, One of my favorite parts was when they told us Peter’s eyes got pecked out by crows. I liked this part because it was random and quite funny. Secondly, Another of my favourite parts was when Mr. Sheamus was telling Peter how vicious his dog “Killer” is. I liked this part because he only had three legs and he was some what old. One of my last favourite’s is when Peter found the carridge with loks all around it. When Peter found the carrridge he could use his magical fingers to unlock all the locks. The first three chapters made me feel amused and gratified.
