When orphaned Irish siblings Molly and Kip arrive to work as servants at a creepy, crumbling English manor house, they discover that the house and its inhabitants are not what they seem. Soon the siblings are confronted by a mysterious stranger and the secrets of the cursed house will change their lives forever. This much-anticipated follow up to Jonathan Auxier’s exceptional debut, Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes, is a Victorian mystery in the tradition of Washington Irving and Edgar Allan Poe. The Night Gardener is a mesmerizing read and a classic in the making.

It is about two kids that have no parents. They look for a house in this town. They go into the woods in search for a house. There is a legend about a evil tree that kills the people that lives there. They get to the house and sure enough there is a huge tree smack against the house. There is a family in the house at the time. Every night they have nightmares. They notice that there is a unknown man that waters the tree with a special liquid. The try to capture him, They realized he is a spirit and he dose fight back and fights back hard will they survive and live a happy life. Read the book to find out.

A lot of people say it is really good. So I am going to trust them on that and read it.

You should read it!

I wanted to read this book because everyone said it was great. I so far think it's OK, but I've only read about two chapters into the book, and the chapters are pretty short. This book is about two siblings who start working at this old mansion. The people who live there don't seem to realize it, but something is going on. When Kip sees a mysterious figure and Molly sees a recent picture of the family that looks much to plump and happy with curly chestnut hair then to be the people here with their skinny selfs and straight black hair, but it must be them, for they said so the selfs. What is going to happen? Can't wait to find out!

I think this is a great book. It tells about a Night Man, two kids named Molly and Kip, and the Windors. You need to read this book
