The Sisters Eight are back in a new adventure! This time, Georgia gets her chance to be the hero--if she doesn't completely mess things up!

In the first two installments of the Sisters Eight, we met the sisters (octuplets) and their eight cats. We discovered Mommy and Daddy disappeared (or died) and that to find out what happened to them, each girl must discover her power a

And the adventure continues brilliantly in Book 3! This story adds a nice new twist in that the story begins to comment on itself, and on the pattern that is being created in how the books are written and how the powers, gifts, and adventures are unfolding. It begins to point out the writing process, such as "showing" a story rather than "telling" it - which was just brilliant, added a nice dose of humor to the already witty dialogue, and made the reader feel part of the adventure. Well done!

Recommends it for: children starting to read chapter books
This is the third 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 them quickly in succession.

I found the story to be strange, but interesting and I can see that this series would appeal to a young elementary school-age child just getting into reading longer chapter book

This book is part of a great series for readers just breaking in to chapter books and who like a little bit of magic.

I'm really liking this series. The characters are memorable and lovable. I'm really impressed, very few series designed for eight year olds hold my attention this long.

Last time Durinda found out her power and the sisters discovered the pattern of discovering their powers and gifts. This time it becomes evident that their cats gain the same powers they do, when they do. Poor Georgia, it's her month and everything should be going her way, but it's not. First a pigeon brings her gift on the first
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.

I liked the book but at the same time I didn't. I liked how Georgia's gift came early, I didn't like how Georgia sent it back. I liked their substitute teacher, I didn't like how Ms. Harkness kidnapped the McG and after the St.Patricks day parade at the school she kidnapped the eights(not including Georgia). I liked how Georgia's gift was to disappear, I thought it was odd how Georgia's power appeared on her cat before it appeared on her. I liked the book almost as much as the first and second b ...more
owh..yess... the plot thickens....
Though it is nothing you wouldnt have already guessed.

I have more fun reading this third book than reading the previous two. Maybe because the main character in this book, Georgia, is somehow antagonized from the beginning that it is nice to see her becoming a lil' bit wiser here (she even uses the famous quote "with great power comes great responsibility"--or something like that). Not only Georgia, the other girls are becoming more mature as well, as expected

Not a huge fan of this series. There are 8 sisters whose parents mysteriously disappear and then each month one sister will discover her magic power and receive a gift. Notes are left for the sisters in the wall. The adventures of the girls are cute and fun but the premise of the book seems contrived. Parts of the plot don't seem to have any reason except to advance the plot, they don't make sense even Ina magical world way. This book is an easy read, good for kids just getting into chapter book ...more

I like these. There are off funny lines and crazy things happening. A few holes in the story, yes, hence not quite four or five stars. But I do still think I shall have to get them for the school collection. Public library didn't have number two but oh well. There's a little recap of the story so far at the beginning of each one, so while it would assist the OCD reader in me to finish them in order ... it's not imperative.

Mr. Pete is a good guy. The McG is not quite so bad as she might seem. And

My granddaughter, her mother and I just finished this book. As DGD is just learning to read, we read it out loud to her, laughing and being (slightly) scared along the way. I know the blurbs say this is for the middle grades, but I and others have noted it works very well for those just moving into chapter books. DGD is 6 1/2 and this is perfect for the child who has read lots of books with her parents. It was fun for me, too.

This is the third book in a series about eight sisters. Georgia, the third sister, learns that her power is "invisibility". This power helps Georgia save her sisters when their real teacher is kidnapped and a substitute has evil plans for the eight girls. The impressive thing about this book is that the eight year old daughter of Lauren and Greg Baratz-Logsted has made this her literary debut. This series would work for second through fourth grade children.

I recommend this book to all people who like to wonder. Because it doesn't tell you exactly word for word what is happening. Very good book

Just as enjoyable and fun as the first two. I'm really enjoying this series, small as the books may be, and I'm excited to start reading the next books as soon as possible.

Just another in a long list of books that I had never heard of that the previous librarian purchased before leaving simply because they were on sale. Ugh.

I believe that "the sequels never live up" is false for these books. Every single one is amazing.

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!
