Review: Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye by Tania del Rio

by Donna Huber

cover Warrent the 13th and the All Seeing Eye

Warren the 13th tiptoed across the roof of the Warren Hotel, causing the old slate tiles to clatter like bones. A crisp autumn wind snapped at his back, threatening to knock him off balance, but he kept going. A fall from the top of an eight-story building was the least of his worries. He had a chimney to repair.

The Review

Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye is a middle grades fantasy adventure full of secrets, riddles, villains, good guys, and mysterious people.

I selected this book when I was a winner at Armchair BEA  I thought my nephew would like the book. What I didn't realize was how much I would like the book. I don't read too many illustrated novels, but this one was really well done. The images and word art enhanced the story. I wish I had a final version because my advance copy didn't contain all the illustrations.

It was a really smart story that kept me engaged and looking forward to what would happen next. The riddles had me a bit stumped and I enjoyed how the mystery unfolded.

I wonder what the next adventure will be.

Warren the 13th would make a great present for a middle grades child or for a family to read together.

  2. This looks like fun and I think I might enjoy it too! Here's my Teaser/Intro post for the week:

  3. I would have loved reading this in the middle grades! And it sounds like fun for adults too.

  5. This one sounds way outside by comfort zone or at least way outside my regular reading box. I don't have any middle schoolers in the family at present. But thanks for sharing it.

  6. I don't usually read MG books, but this one does sound delightful. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  7. I love the sound of this one! I saw mention of this by another book blogger yesterday and it piqued my interest, but your review has me wanting to add it to my wish list. I am glad you liked it.

  8. It may sound silly but I like the verbs the author used. The character "tiptoed" and the wind "snapped." Good writing! I'd enjoy reading this with my granddaughter when she gets a little older.
