    Molly Moon's Incredible Book of Hypnotism is really the first book that wowed me. It was a mix of everything I adored. It had the elements of a fantasy, but yet when it was so unreal at times, at others it was just simply about this average potato-nosed, green eyed, skinny, akward looking girl named Molly. By displaying how average Molly was, it made the elements of fantasy in the story seem more believable.

By displaying how average Molly was, it made the elements of fantasy in the story seem more believable. I think that a good story balances out the unreal parts of it by adding some regular traits to the characters to make them seem more realistic. This girl grows up in such an unfortunate way and then this sudden shock of happiness makes one hopeful about the future. I found the story amazing, and enjoyed how the author gave importance to even the smallest things and details. This book is one you'll see on the shelf and want to read again, simply because it's familiar and you enjoyed it. This is the kind of book that there needs to be more of because it's an enjoyable story with elements of different genres. I now try to look for books like this one. This was my first real amazing read. This book will set the standards for what makes an amazing book when you go to choose a new book to read. I could really relate to this book, therefore making me enjoy it more. I can't wait for the newest Molly Moon to come out.

This book shares a story of a misunderstood, awkward orphan child, who discovers she possesses amazing "powers" and creates an incredible life for herself using a book of hypnotism. This book is about an orphan young named Molly Moon hates living in Hardwick House. Every day she is 'bullied' by Miss Adderstone, the owner of the orphanage, who makes Molly's life miserable. Her best and only friend Rocky has just been adopted and is moving to New York City and she finds her life near unbearable. But one day, when Molly stumbles upon a mysterious old book on hypnotism, her world is suddenly turned upside down. She discovers that with this book, she has the amazing power to make people do things. There's nothing Molly believes she can't do now, and starts her works on becoming a New York City Broadway superstar. What Molly doesn't know, is that a stranger is following her with different plans of his own. This book to me is more than just a funny story about an orphan who learns how to hypnotize people. It turns into a moral children's story about exploitation, character, and learning to care for people. Molly is one of those characters you hope never gets hurt, and you hope she gets her revenge because she is constantly being picked on by her peers in the orphanage. I found myself very connected to the characters, but felt like the plot was rushed into and too unbelievable, even coming from a book about a little girl mastering hypnotism. In conclusion, I can say "Molly Moon's Incredible Book of Hypnotism" is one of the only books that had kept my attention long enough to finish it. I enjoyed it a lot and I recommend everyone to read it. While reading this book, you could learn a few important life lessons that will surely come in handy.

    I really cannot express how much I love this book. I first read it when I was nine and now eight years later I am still enchanted by it. I also cannot remember just how many times I've read it, but each time I finish it I fall in love with it even more. And, each time I start it I attempt to savour every sentence, only to be drawn into it completely and have a marathon reading session for the last quarter of the book. Molly breathed in the fresh cold night air and grinned at the still, sleeping I really cannot express how much I love this book.

And, each time I start it I attempt to savour every sentence, only to be drawn into it completely and have a marathon reading session for the last quarter of the book. Molly breathed in the fresh cold night air and grinned at the still, sleeping countryside. Tonight, life was almost too exciting. What had she thought when she'd first found the hypnotism book? That the possibilities were endless? Tonight Molly felt that was certainly true about her life. From the top of her head to the tips of her toes. Life felt completely magical. And once again, Molly thought how happy she was to be ordinary, plain old Molly Moon. Ahead, the road shone like a silver ribbon in the moonlight, all the way home to Happiness House. The book follows the story of Molly Moon, an orphan abandoned at birth, as she finds a book that will literally change her life. However, she soon finds out that her new life is not all it's cracked up to be. She realises that she would rather be back in the horrible, grimy old orphanage as long as she can have her best friend Rocky back. Although the novel is mainly from Molly's point of view, there are occasional passages from other point of views, including that of Petula the Pug. Byng uses the technique as a way to inform the audience of situations and feelings that Molly herself is not aware of. I love this element and I feel that it enhances the book, without detracting from Molly's story. The chapters are relatively short, especially towards the end, which helps with the flow of the book. The story is also quite fast-paced, with no boring bits which is also a plus. Overall it is an absolutely charming story which teaches audiences that the grass is not always greener on the other side. Absolutely superb!

But there's an evil "professor" of hypnotism who wants to get the book back and also wants to blackmail Molly into staging a crime for him. This is a story that teaches you to be true to yourself and to be happy with what you have. I loved this book because it has well-made characters, a fantastic storyline, plenty of humour and it sucks you right in. Well it did for ME at least; I read the whole thing in four days. I also zoomed right through all three sequals as well. Some people say that Molly, as a character, isn't very likeable. Well, in my opinion, ALL the characters--including Molly--are fabulously IRRESISTABLE! A very charming story that I would recommend to anyone... well, just about anyone. Can't wait for the movie to come out!

Well-written and unique enough to stand on its own and apart from Harry Potter. I recommend it if you like this type of book.

    ".Molly Moon, an orphan at Hardwick House Orphanage in Briersville, England, is living a "boring and plain" life with her best friend Rocky Scarlet, another orphan. She is described as being plain looking with a large "potato" nose, wobbly knees and green eyes.

As sh ".Molly Moon, an orphan at Hardwick House Orphanage in Briersville, England, is living a "boring and plain" life with her best friend Rocky Scarlet, another orphan. She is described as being plain looking with a large "potato" nose, wobbly knees and green eyes. She is usually beaten down upon by Ms. Adderstone, the woman in charge of the orphanage, and Hazel, a snobby orphan girl. During a cross-country race at school, Molly and Rocky have a fight and Molly storms away to the town library. As she walks in, she finds a man yelling at the librarian about a book he ordered, but ignores him. While looking in a curious compartment of the restricted section, she finds a book on hypnotism, placed in the wrong section because the "H" was ripped off the spine. Intrigued, she steals it and sneaks out of the library. She takes it to the orphanage to read it. She fakes being ill so that she can study the book better. Curiously, she finds that chapters 7 and 8 ("Voice-Only Hypnosis" and "Long Distance Hypnosis") are missing. Not long after her discovery of the book, she learns that Rocky has been adopted and taken to America with his new family. Determined to see her friend again, she gains the actual ability to hypnotize from the lessons in her book, first successfully hypnotizing the orphanage dog, Petula. Later on, she is able to hypnotize both Ms. Adderstone and their orphanage chef Edna. Using her ability, Molly wins a large sum of money from a local talent competition, by hypnotizing the crowd into believing that she is a talented singer and dancer. She uses the money to fly to New York City, taking Petula with her. Before leaving, she buys a large gold pendulum, where the mysterious professor from the library learns about her, after he bought some anti-hypnosis glasses. Soon after arriving, Molly hypnotizes her way onto Broadway, landing the lead in a musical called "Stars on Mars". However, she steals this part from a real child star, named Davina Nuttel, in the process. The show is a roaring success, and catches the attention of a man named Simon Nockman, who has passed himself off as a "professor" of hypnosis, but is truly just a criminal. He theorizes Molly must have obtained the book and learned hypnosis, and formulates a plan. After one performance of "Stars on Mars", Nockman kidnaps Petula, threatening to kill her if Molly does not comply with his orders, and she cannot hypnotize him because he always wears the anti-hypnotic glasses he bought in Briersville. He orders her to use her power of hypnosis to rob some rare jewels from a bank for him. Having no choice, Molly agrees. All goes as planned with the robbery until she finds Rocky, who much to her surprise has also learned hypnosis. He had previously stolen and learned from the missing chapters of Molly's hypnotism book, "Long Distance Hypnosis" and "Voice-Only Hypnosis". He also reveals that he had intended to take Molly with him when he was adopted, but had not been able to hypnotize his parents. Since then, he left them as they were not much fun. Together, the two pull off the robbery, but later form a plan to return the jewels. Rocky uses his talent to hypnotize Nockman into giving up his life of crime. He then helps Molly return the stolen jewels by placing them in hollow garden gnomes and placing them around the city. However, Molly keeps one diamond, which Petula found in her jacket. Molly gives her part in "Stars on Mars" back to Davina, and returns home with Rocky. Out of sympathy for the broken man, she takes Nockman with her. Before leaving, they work together to record a commercial, using their hypnotic powers to convince people to be kind to their kids. However, when they return, they find Ms. Adderstone and Edna have disappeared, leaving the orphanage in chaos. With Nockman's help, Molly and Rocky get the orphanage back into a livable condition, and get Ms. Trinklebury, the orphanage maid, to run it along with Nockman. The orphanage is renamed 'Happiness House' and the money that Molly earned in New York is used to buy new things and decorate the orphanage. However, it is implied that Nockman has returned to his old ways as he steals a camera, a lollipop and five pounds from children in the orphanage. At the end of the book, Molly is mysteriously summoned to the library by the librarian, Lucy Logan. Lucy explains that she is the descendant of Professor Logan, the man who originally wrote the hypnotism book, and is a skilled hypnotist herself. She had purposely hypnotized Molly into finding Professor Logan's hypnotism book and keeping it for a month. Now, Molly must return it. In an epilogue, it is revealed what happened to Ms. Adderstone and Edna; Ms. Adderstone left to become a pilot, and Edna is now an Italian chef. "

As for my adult critique--the writing wasn't that great, the hypnotism was way over-used. (Mollie is explaining her gift of hypnotism to Rocky while he is hypnotizing her, while she and he have both been hyptonized by the librarian, etc.) It reminded me of that Tom Cruise movie MI 2? where every time you turned around someone (good or bad) pulled off a rubber mask showing that they weren't who you just thought they were. The first time it was cool and surprising. The rest of the time it just became ridiculous. Also, while unrealistic on so many levels, the idea that a 10 year old girl lives in New York City eating ketchup sandwiches and candy, comes back to her orphanage in England and lectures the other children about the need for good, healthy food and a well-balanced diet. She becomes the moral superior of all of the adults. I find British stories about orphans who are mistreated by wicked adults to be so hackneyed.

    I quite enjoyed this. It's a refreshing fantasy-adventure tale in that our young, parent-less heroine isn't trying to save the world from the ultimate evil (aren't you getting a little sick of that worn-out plot?) but instead escaping an awful life and having her every wish fulfilled. Until, of course, she realizes that having your every wish fulfilled is never all it's cracked up to be. True, it's a little cheeseball with the moral, but, like I said, I enjoyed it, and I don't doubt that many ki I quite enjoyed this.

Side note: I honestly thought for a long time that this was a book about a dog named Molly Moon because there's a dog on the cover, but the dog is actually a pug named Petula who (also refreshingly) is pretty much a normal-acting dog and not a talking one. Additional side note: There's an ice cream shop in Seattle called Molly Moon's that has a dog in its logo. Coincidence? I don't know, but the ice cream there is bomb.

    Molly’s is an average child’s fantasy. “Oh, how I wish I could get back at Mom for making me eat lima beans. She knows I hate them, that’s why she gives it to me!” The idea of being able to get revenge for being served vegetables they hate and being force-marched to bed at 9 o’clock makes Molly Moon a fun and silly read for the 8-12 crowd.

We never picked it back up, and I figured it’d be a quick book to help me hit my 75-book goal (this one makes number 68, only 7 to go ) I remember we’d laughed and laughed until tears came into our eyes and my throat was hoarse from doing the voices and cackling so much. Without her, however, I only chuckled a couple times and found myself wishing I was sharing it with her. Children lend their magic to some books, a magic we adults seem to have lost.

I think what attracted me to this series the most were the cute covers with Petula on them. But why is she blue? I don’t know! Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Molly Moon, Rocky Scarlett & Petula’s New York City adventures. It also had several important lessons that I think anyone could benefit from. The biggest one being that you could have everything you think you ever wanted in the world and it would not make you happy. That’s exactly how Molly Moon felt after her adventures in stardom. She wanted to return to her old life, exactly as it was before, and have her best friend Rocky, and the other children at the orphanage by her side again. Even if you think you have a horrible life, there are people out there who have it much worse than you do. Some people never know kindness and that is why they are horrible people. You shouldn’t hate anyone for the way they are, you should forgive them as “that’s what they were taught to do.” Its as Mrs. Trinklebury’s song says: “Forgive, little birds, that brown cuckoo For pushing you out of your nests. It’s what mamma cuckoo taught it to do- She taught it that pushing is best.” On the other hand though, some people are just awful. Its just how they are. Its best to focus on enjoying your life in the moment. Also, I recently learned that this book is also a movie! I definitely want to watch it now, however, as always, the book is probably better. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a cute, magical, hypnotic read! I cannot wait to read the next one!

After breakfast, Molly went obediently towards Miss Anderstone's office. she was about to give Molly a punishment when, Molly hypnotized her and obligated her to tell her where Rocky had went, but she only remembered he went to New York. Molly also hypnotized her into making everyone putting attention when Molly was going to speak in the dress rehearsal for the talent show. At the dress rehearsal, Molly hypnotized the whole orphanage into hitting themselves in the head with whatever they had in their hand each time they though or did something bad to her.Molly went to a hotel for the night. The next morning, Molly wanted to do some things before she went on the expedition to find Rocky. First she went and bought the things for the airplane then, she bought a really expensive pendulum to hypnotize in an old shop by the corner. After Molly went from the shop happily, the professor who wanted the book, Professor Nockman, entered the shop and asked questions about the girl who just left the shop because she sound very mysterious. He found out that she had the book he was looking for and he decided that he would follow her until he gets the book but, when he decided that,Moly had already gone in a cab towards the airport. Molly had entered the airport and asked for a ticket for the next flight to New York convincing that she had sixteen. Professor Nockman had arrived to the airport and asked for the flight to New York but, unfortunately, the flight just boarded and took off. Professor Nockman took the next flight which was in five hours. That made him so mad, he decided that, Molly had gotten away with that one but, he knew that he would get her pay and pay for everything she had done to him in the past few weeks.

Sometimes I found myself wishing I was an orphan, just so I'd have a chance to have an adventure like her. Still, despite my envy, I couldn't put the book down until I'd finished it. In fact-I couldn't really do anything else until I read the ENTIRE series. And when that was over I actually cried slightly at the thought that there were no more molly moon books. I thought it was the absolute perfect combination of magic, adventure, and humor. I thought she was the absolute BEST writer ever. Now I know that she is indeed not the most talented, and that her sentences aren't the best and most perfectly plotted and that Most people my age would laugh at such a book, but still I find myself subconsciously wanting Byng to create another book for me to read and enjoy. p.s. I actually read the 4th book 1stby accident, the mind machine one; Georgia Byng should really number her books!! Still, although not quite as action packed, this is a good book.

This book is amazing, it teaches her how to control people only using her eyes! she decides that she hates her life at the orphanage in england and chooses to go to the city that never sleeps, New York. Here she hypnotises her way to success but later deserts her glamourous life to go back to her life in england because her friends, almost like brothers and sisters need her help. Put it this way...this book is good with spontanious and vindictive charactors. I found this book to be a funny, adventourous and totally awesome at the same time. Out of ten would give this book a 20

    As another Goodreads reviewer wrote, "I despise reading about bullies. And if I do have to read about them, there better be a good payoff in the end."

It was readable. And the story was interesting, if purposefully odd in its Charles Dickens orphan meets A Star is Born. But I, like the reviewer quoted above, would have quit looooong before the end had I not read that there WAS a moral. I'm glad I kept reading. But this is not one for kids who aren't really paying attention to each word. This is a book that must be finished or the lesson becomes "do whatever you want whenever you want as long as it makes you happy." Not a good lesson, that.

Then, a mean, sinister man who also wants the hypnotism book for himself, follows Molly to LA, and hunts her down. He forces her to do some dirty work for him, otherwise he will kill her dog.That is what mainly happens in the story, and I won' say any more.

    Molly Moon’s Incredible Book of Hypnotism by Georgia Byng is a children’s book that breaks all the rules. When an agent or a publisher tells a writer that they cannot write about people smoking, or about children doing naughty things (like stealing and running away)…don’t listen to them, because this book has all these things and more. The author tells an interesting story about an orphan girl who finds an old book on Hypnotism in the local library. The girl’s name is Molly Moon and she discovers Molly Moon’s Incredible Book of Hypnotism by Georgia Byng is a children’s book that breaks all the rules.

The author tells an interesting story about an orphan girl who finds an old book on Hypnotism in the local library. The girl’s name is Molly Moon and she discovers that if she puts the lessons from the book into action, she can literally get anything she wants. She uses this art to better herself, in quite a selfish way, and at the expense of others. However, all the “bad” things she does lead to a lesson to be learned and I felt the author tackled these issues quite well. The story is humorous, unusual and well written. It’s an adventure with loads of twists and turns, which are neatly brought together for a satisfactory ending.

    I thought this book was really cute, but at the same time pretty sad. Seriously, if I was Molly, I would totally rebel. Rebel against everything in that awful hell-hole of an orphanage. She is like a priest for having such tolerance for all of the disrespect and vulgarity she is given there. If someone told me that I had to wash out all of the toilet bowls with my own tooth brush for a week as a penalty to "using too much bathwater" I would WITHOUT A DOUBT not do it.

I really hope that things like this don't happen in real life orphanages. On a brighter note, this book was cute, because you kind of got to explore the ambitions of a child living in a disgusting, poorly maintained/run orphanage. It's really adorable how Molly talks about the Qube Soda ads she sees on billboards and on TV, and how she just longs for the moment where she gets her revenge on everyone who was disrespectful to her in the orphanage.
