Another great addition to the eights adventure! And the prologues continue to be a great feature of each book - finding a unique way to say the same thing about what happened in previous adventures, yet still feel engaging. And the prologue in book 4 did not disappoint. It has nice interactions with the reader - pointing out that the book is talking to the reader. I think kids will really like this aspect, especially because it uses this technique to recap the story without being boring and invo ...more

It's amazing how quickly Thursday and Friday fly by when you know you are going to see your CPA on Saturday.

Talk about a sentence I never thought I'd read in a book, much less in one that's meant for children. I'm starting to think that this series, written collaboratively by a mom, dad, and their daughter, is a way for the mom and dad to impart future adult knowledge to their daughter in a fun, girly, octuplet package.

This is the fourth book in the Sisters Eight series by Lauren Baratz-Logsted, Greg Logsted, and Jackie Logsted. Our oldest daughter discovered the first book of this series recently at our local library and fell in love immediately. We've borrowed the next few books in the series and she's read several of them quickly in succession.

We actually read this book together, but for some reason, I would quickly fall asleep while reading it. I guess I just didn't enjoy this book as much as the others.

Both my daughters love this new series starring eight eight-year-old sisters, mystery, adventure, and a huge dose of humor. The Huit sisters live in an unusual house, shared with eight unusual cats. In the way of multiples, the sisters find ways to distinguish themselves from one another, and Baratz-Logsted has done a brilliant job of imagining the conflicts and the joys of sisterhood. The set-up allows for each sister to discover a new and unexpected capacity within herself.

April Fools is suita

I liked the book, but in the beginning of the book it was April 1 so everyone was playing practical jokes on each other. Some of the jokes were funny but others weren't. I like how Jackie's power allows her to be faster than a speeding train. I thought it was weird how the note behind the loose stone in the drawing room said "beware the other eights." I like how Annie's gift was a ring, how Durinda's gift was a pair of clip on earrings, how Georgia's gift was a little pocket mirror, and how Jack ...more

fourth book in the sisters eight series ... pretty on par with the rest of the series. this one gets point for being the only kids book i can think of that makes a plot point out of tax day and for the cliffhanger ending.
8 sisters. Names: Annie to Zinnia.
Parents have disappeared.
Each girl has a super power.
It wore me out, but think young girls might enjoy the fun and fantasy.
The girls find mysterious notes that have been left to them under a stone.

I like the book a lot, but the same thing happens in every book.
One of them finds a power and their gift.

It didn't really go anywhere that much, but they had little adventures that I enjoyed.

Would love to have Jackies power
The fun and silliness of the Sisters 8 continues :)
It's a pity that the conflict in this fourth book, in my opinion, rather dull, but here for the first time we got a cliffhanger. Intriguing, eh?

Can't remember library books ever having had such heavy usage at our house! In three weeks, I've read the series once, but C is halfway through a third round already!

The beauty of discovering a series later on. We're inching closer and closer to four stars.
