Meanguy asked:

Interesting choice regarding making the kids a lot older and using Ben and Batty as the eyes and ears of the story. I hear Rosalind and Tommy are always driving to the drugstore which Batty finds peculiar.

Eve NO! No, Tommy is actually not around for a good chunk of the beginning. No drugstore AT ALL.

Denise Taylor These are such good bedtime stories. They start great conversations with the this case, talking about things that are bothering you.
Susan And it's mostly Batty's eyes, not Ben's. I wanted so much to like this, but it didn't have the magic of the earlier books. Maybe it's because they are growing older. Maybe it's because the story is told almost entirely from Batty's point of view instead of the wonderful merry-go-round alternating POV among the four sisters in the first books.
Eline Yes what Eve said
Bill Diehl Right on part one. Totally wrong on part two.
