Description

This much-anticipated follow-up to Jonathan Auxier's exceptional debut, Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes, is a Victorian ghost story with shades of Washington Irving and Henry James. More than just a spooky tale, it's also a moral fable about human greed and the power of storytelling. The Night Gardener follows two abandoned Irish siblings who travel to work as servants at a creepy, crumbling English manor house. But the house and its family are not quite what they seem. Soon the children are confronted by a mysterious spectre and an ancient curse that threatens their very lives. With Auxier's exquisite command of language, The Night Gardener is a mesmerizing read and a classic in the making.

Professional reviews

"This ghost story, set in Victorian England, is rich with memorable characters, which narrator Beverley Crick splendidly brings to life. Poor Irish orphans Molly and Kip are making their way around the country, looking for work with their tired, old horse and rickety wagon. Crick dynamically renders 14-year-old Molly, a sublime storyteller, as well as her lively, smart younger brother. They eventually find work with the Windsor family, who live in a decayed mansion that is cursed. Crick sounds genuine as the snobbish wealthy family members, and her best creation is Hester, a wise and wily witch who teaches the kids valuable lessons. Young listeners will be entranced.
