Finally Oliver, after much time spent persuading his parents, takes a cab to Cat's Eye Corner. His grandpa is living there with his new wife, Sylvia de Whosit of Whatsit, best known to Oliver as his Step-Step-Step-Grandma. Sylvia is reported to be a witch. Choosing to take matters into his own hands, Oliver decides that the situation calls for a little spying. That plan fails when she sees him before he can spy on her. In return Oliver is sent on a scavenger hunt. On the hunt, he meets Murray, a talking pen, Linnet who controls the wind, the So-so Gang, a swarm of French flies and many more interesting characters. Join Oliver on his adventure in Cat's Eye Corner's many ever-changing rooms.

In this soft-cover fantasy book, Cat's Eye Corner by Terry Griggs, you'll find yourself enthralled in its 163 pages. It had me trapped! Terry Griggs' other children's book is The Silver Door, the sequel to Cat's Eye Corner (also very good, as I have read it as well).

Terry Griggs' writing pulls you headfirst into Cat's Eye Corner, gluing your eyes to its pages until you have read ever single one.

I give this book 5 stars.
