Truth in Fiction: Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes by Jonathan Auxier

Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes

"But every person, both great and small, is asked to do difficult things - and this is the difficult thing that I must do." p.59 Professor Cake 

"More than any argument or reasoning, the thing that persuaded Peter to stay was this: Professor Cake had given him a choice - a gift that no one had ever offered him before." p. 68

"As you have undoubtedly noticed in your own life, unsolicited advice amounts to little more than criticism, and Peter had grown increasingly weary of these 'suggestions.'" p. 92
