In nineteenth century New York, 14 year old Horace has been raised to think scientifically and logically. So what is he to do when he is apprenticed to a photogapher who fakes "spiritual" pictures of his clients' deceased loved ones and real ghosts start to appear in the photographs that Horace takes?This was a quick, informative ghost story meant for 8-12 year olds. Although it is filled with historical facts, the story is mysterious and thrilling enough to hold their attention. The vocabulary is somewhat lofty for this age range, so I'd reserve this one for strong readers - but I think that's true of many Avi books. It would be particularly good in the classroom for students studying this time frame (1872).Popular The Seer of Shadows Creat Avi are Book Newbery Medalist Avi weaves one of his most suspenseful and scary tales about a ghost who has to be seen to be believed and must be kept from carrying out a horrifying revenge.The time is 1872 The place is New York City Horace Carpetine has been raised to believe in science and rationality So as apprentice to Enoch Middleditch, a society photographer, he thinks of his tNewbery Medalist Avi weaves one of his most suspenseful and scary tales about a ghost who has to be seen to be believed and must be kept from carrying out a horrifying revenge.The time is 1872 The place is New York City Horace Carpetine has been raised to believe in science and rationality So as apprentice to Enoch Middleditch, a society photographer, he thinks of his trade as a scientific art But when wealthy society matron Mrs Frederick Von Macht orders a photographic portrait, strange things begin to happen.Horace s first real photographs reveal a frightful likeness it s the image of the Von Machts dead daughter, Eleanora.Pegg, the Von Machts black servant girl, then leads him to the truth about who Eleanora really was and how she actually died Joined in friendship, Pegg and Horace soon realize that his photographs are evoking both Eleanora s image and her ghost Eleanora returns, a vengeful wraith intent on punishing those who abused her.Rich in detail, full of the magic of early photography, here is a story about the shadows, visible and invisible, that are always lurking near.. Avi is a pen name for Edward Irving Wortis, but he says, The fact is, Avi is the only name I use Born in 1937, Avi has created many fictional favorites such as The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, Nothing but the Truth, and the Crispin series His work is popular among readers young and old.. Bestseller Book The Seer of Shadows 3.5, really. Parts of it were really interesting (if you like photography, anyway, which I do) and parts were really creepy, but parts were also kind of annoying. Like ending all the early chapters with those super obnoxious, "But I never guessed what would happen next!" lines, or the ending that created a new story without an ending. Characterization could have been deeper, the ghosts/belief in them could have been delved into a little more and the climax could have been less rushed, but I thought the setting and atmosphere were well done.
