Transcript of Night Journeys by Avi

Night Journeys ~ Avi
The theme is, friendship. In this book Peter proves himself a loyal friend to Elizabeth and Robert, by helping them escape and keeping them alive along the way.
Peter York is a boy who wants to be free after he was adopted to work in a house. He wants to ride off with his horse, Jumper-who means a lot to him- to freedom. I think peter represents a character of friendliness. My evidence is that he is willing to risk his life and reputation for their safety.
