    One thought on “Murder at Midnight”

    1. Avi is a fabulous writer. He creates vivid pictures of the past, and Murder at Midnight is no exception. This is a prequel to Midnight Magic.Fabrizio is a servant to Mangus, the Magician. Magic is not allowed in Pergamontio, but uneducated Fabrizio is amazed by his master's skills. When Mangus must either confess to a plot against the king or reveal who hatched the plot (neither of which is possible, since he had nothing to do with any plot), they must rely on Fabrizio's wits. The "magic" is the [...]

    2. A fairly good juvenile mystery set in Renaissance era Italy.A young boy is taken in by a famous magician in a backward Italian city. Everybody in the city believes that the magician is a real wizard. When hundreds of flyers, exactly alike appear throughout the town, the magician is arrested for witchcraft. The boy has to find out how the handbills were created, and clear the magician's name.Pretty good, but not quite up to the level of The Three Investigators.

    3. I struggled reading this book. I just couldn't get into the story and characters. It had promise but I couldn't seem to care. That being said, I have kids that I know will want to read it.

    5. This book has a good pace and has an old-fashioned but modern feel, and I enjoyed reading it. In this book, there are papers suggestions someone overthrowing the king of Pergamontio, Italy, and the king suspects it is the magician named Mangus. Mangus the magician, along with his servant, Fabrizio, help convince the king of what really happened. There is an interesting mysterious feel to this book, which makes you want to keep reading to find out what happens next. However, it is somewhat confus [...]

    6. Read with the kids. Avi writes good solid juvinile lit. He isn't Twain, Dahl or Kipling, but hell, few writers for kids are.

    7. I never actually did finish this book. I think I've had enough stories about subservient boy apprentices and crotchety old magicians. I couldn't finish the book.

    8. In the book Murder at Midnight, a young boy who has lived on his streets all his life, but one day a mistress named Sophia finds him and takes him in for they are in need of assistance. He never has had a name, but this young boy, Fabrizio named by his mistress, always loved magic. In the Kingdom of Pergamontio he watched and learned. His master, Mangus the Magician, always thought that he would never need Fabrizio and was always had a hate for him, but he himself had always loved magic. Fabrizi [...]

    9. The book was semi-interesting. I couldn't really get into the book and I was finding myself making excuses not to read this book. I felt that the entire time I was waiting for the climax and when I felt the conflict starting to be resolved, I started to feel like I had wasted time by reading this book. I wouldn't recommend it because it wasn't very action-packed, but if you want some time to kill, then yeah sure. Also, the cover is beautiful and yes, that is why I chose this book.

    10. A dim but kindhearted protagonistCommoners idioms with some philosophical depthSolid introduction to mystery for kids

    12. I liked it because I like books about the past. Also I would recommend this book for people who love books about the past.

    13. Ten year old Fabrizio is an orphan, entirely dependent on the goodwill of people like Mistress Sophia and her husband, Mangus the Magician.

    16. This is not my favorite genre but for a historical fiction novel it was good. I am glad I chose this one because I like magic tricks and know a couple myself. It was a little sad at times and the characters were really good because they talked and looked like they would in that time.
