#BookADay: THE NIGHT GARDENER by Jonathan Auxier
#BookADay: THE NIGHT GARDENER by Jonathan Auxier. Loved this book soooo much that I immediately had to buy the author's first book, PETER NIMBLE AND HIS FANTASTIC EYES.
Deliciously creepy middle grade story. "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."
