    1. I was ready to adore The Curious Chronicles of Jack Bokimble and His Peculiar Penumbra from the beginning, just for the title alone. Jack is different. He has a magical shadow which he learns to use to explore the world in a way no one else can. He can touch and manipulate items with his shadow, feeling with his physical body and shadow simultaneously. While Jack is shy and fearful, his shadow is not and it cannot feel pain. Jack’s father, who has a small nose but an exceptionally gifted sense [...]


    2. The Curious Chronicles of Jack Bokimble and His Peculiar Penumbra is a super fun, middle-grade read. This book delivers all the funtastic elements that a children’s story should – it is silly, it is a bit outrageous, and it is full of imagination! Think fun wordplay, wacky inventions, communicating with animals, and an assembly of zany characters.I really enjoyed the storytelling element in this book. Throughout, bits of dialogue between the storyteller (an adult) and the audience (a child) [...]


    3. Originally posted at Log Cabin LibraryIt's pretty hard to pass on a book with a title like The Curious Chronicles of Jack Bokimble and His Peculiar Penumbra, it's one of those books you know you just want to read. The story takes the form of an adult telling a story to a young child with a Roald Dahl-like quality that I particularly enjoyed. Jack lives with his parents in New York City, close to Central Park. Jack's parents might be considered slightly peculiar by some. His dad has a heightened [...]


    4. This story is being told by an adult to a child. The love the point of view given and the ability to weave in present day to the store is wonderful. The wacky words and stanza changes remind me of Roald Dahl and several of his works. Through this story we learn that being different is okay, which is a wonderful lesson as this is a middle grades book. The characters are likeable and engaging throughout. It leaves me wanting to cheer for Jack throughout.I would highly recommend this for all childr [...]


    5. 3.5/5 starsFirst of all, the title of this book is amazing. That alone would earn 5 stars from me.Jack Bokimble, the boy with the nursery rhyme name, is a sweet, curious little boy. When he is born, strange things begin to happen in the Bokimble home. His parents at first assume it is a ghost, but quickly learn that Jack's shadow (or penumbra) possesses extraordinary qualities. Jack can control his shadow. It can pick things up, travel places he cannot, and Jack experiences it all as if he is do [...]


    6. *thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*1 star.I wanted to like this, but I didnt. I couldn't get into it. All the odd words kinda put me off. Though I am willing to maybe give this another try in the future so if my view changes I will update this review. But for now, sorry, but it wasnt for me.
