Eye of the Forest Rating: 3


Author: P.B. Kerr

In book 5 of the Children of the Lamp series, twins John and Philippa Gaunt travel to the Amazon jungle in search of an ancient, magical doorway. Kidzworld reviews Eye of the Forest by P.B. Kerr.


The Djinn Twins

John and Philippa Gaunt aren’t your average 12 year old twins. They’re djinn (better known as genies), which gives them the ability to transfer their souls into different bodies, inhabit lamps, or make their every wish come true. But being a djinn comes with its responsibilities. And in the Gaunt family, that responsibility often involves saving the world.


Sent on a Mission

In Eye of the Forest, book 5 of the Children of the Lamp series by P.B. Kerr, Philippa, John and their British uncle Nimrod are sent on another mission. After a collection of ancient Incan artifacts are stolen from the Peabody Museum in New Haven, they travel to South America and scour the Amazon jungle for a magical doorway known as the Eye of the Forest.


Amazon Jungle

But the jungle is wrought with dangers: giant centipedes, mosquitoes and snakes; poisonous frogs; and bloodthirsty warriors. And their annoying friends—another djinn named Zadie and an English butler named Mr. Groanin—don’t make the best travel companions.


The Bottom Line

Eye of the Forest by P.B. Kerr is set in the incredible Amazon jungle. Unfortunately, the book doesn’t quite live up to its colorful, natural setting. The story seems unnecessarily long. By cutting a few needless scenes, the book would move at a faster, more exciting pace. On the plus side, Eye of the Forest has a few solid twists toward the end, proving that betrayal makes for some seriously good reading!
