Carnival At Candlelight Response

Posted on April 29, 2008. Filed under: Reader Response |

As I was reading, Carnival at Candlelight, I thought in the beginning I wouldn’t enjoy this book. It thoroughly surprised me because I really liked the whole mystery that Annie and Jack had to figure out in order to save Venice. I also liked that there were alot of steps that Annie and Jack had to accomplish in order to get to the end result. Before I even opened the front cover, the book instantly reminded me of the Narnia series, the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.It probably just had to do with the fact that there is a powerful looking lion on the front cover but that is my main connection to other. I thought it was really neat that Annie and Jack had to look back upon things they figured out in the past in order to go the next step. They used their prior knowledge to get through problems they were facing at that very moment like they always remembered to use the different spells in the spell book that would relate to that particular point in time. This came into great use when they needed to have the lion fly them over to the sea because he was made of stone to begin with. Without the spell that turned the stone lion into a real life lion, they would not have been able to complete the task of flying to sea to talk to Neptune. Overall, I thought this was a very creative book and I would be more than happy to have this book or even more, the whole series in my future classroom.
