Synopsis (from Amazon):
Most folks say, "Mother Nature controls the rain". However this is not the case in the village of Finkleton. In the perfect little village of Finkleton, the weather is always perfect. Every farm grows the best, biggest, healthiest crops in the entire world, and everyone is happy. Soon after the Finkles inherit their Uncle Harry’s shop and move to Finkleton, they discover magical secrets hidden in his shop. One clue at a time, Jack, Lizzy and Robert learn the town’s amazing secret. No, Mother Nature is not in charge in Finkleton! Ever since Uncle Harry’s death, the weather has not been cooperating. Farms are starting to fail. Will the Finkle children be able to solve all the magical mysteries before the village is destroyed? Come along to Finkleton. A very special, magical adventure is about to begin!

My Thoughts:


So in the book the magic of Finkleton by K. C. Hilton three kids; Jack, Robert, and Lizzy have moved into there uncle Harrry’s  shop after he dies and discover many secrets. I wont tell you what rooms the secrets are in but I can tell you what the secrets do. They control the weather! The secrets help farmers throughout Finkleton such as Andrew Cornerly.

Oh and by the way in this book hourglasses do not control time like you are thinking.

Uncle Harry Finkle’s Death was tragic but he left a letter for the kids.  I think the best part was when the kids were racing against the clock to fix the magic lever so “Mr. Bad Guy” Doesn’t get  Andrew Cornerly’s Farm

Um I didn’t really have a favorite character because I liked them all.

My breakdown:

Of course the setting is in Finkleton

Um characters personalities?
Lizzy: smart alleck
Jack: stubborn
Robert: ? I don’t know how to explain it
Emma:nice and caring as a mother should be
William:A practical joker of a father
Uncle Harry: Busy

Questions I have now:
What’s the clock mean?
What will happen next?!


I can’t wait for the next book!
