Editorial Reviews

The Nocturnals is an enchanting story about a group of animals who band together to protect their friends and find adventure. The characters are delightful and the nighttime landscape is captivating. It was just as I expected-because the best stories always take place in the dark!"- R.L. Stine, author of Goosebumps "Hecht continues to charm readers with delightfully drawn characters and consistent suspense... A welcome return of the colorful and curious trio-their next can't arrive soon enough."(Fantasy 9-12) - Kirkus Reviews "In this satisfying second installment... returning fans will be rewarded with the expected engaging plot twists, plenty of humor, Bismarck's unrequited mooning over Dawn, and reaffirmation of the trio's mutual loyalty and friendship." - Booklist "Fourth to sixth graders, boys and girls alike, will enjoy book two of this series. But don't let the kids have all the fun! Animal loving adults, like myself, will also enjoy this series. So far I find the Nocturnals series to be a fun bedtime read, a good way to leave the worries and woes of the adult day behind."- Bookloons " The Ominous Eye explores how friendships can change, first (and second) impressions aren't always correct, and fear shouldn't stop you from doing what's right. Fans of The Nocturnals will devour this latest adventure with new characters and a thrilling mystery." - YA and Kids Book Central (YABC) "Hecht writes a novel that can stand on its own and allows readers to jump right into the series and backtrack later. The characters are each unique... the reader can't help but be invested in them... Hecht does a great job of tying together themes and morals centering around acceptance, understanding, and friendship." - Centered on Books "
