The Night Gardener buries Glory's History

This round, The Night Gardener and Glory O'Briens History of the Future were pittted against one another.  Glory O'Brien's History of the Future provided an interesting premise but, for me, it fell a bit flat (I guess I never really bought into the bat juice leading to a remarkable new skill to see into the future).  The Night Gardener was pleasantly creepy without making me sleep with the light on.  I can see The Night Gardener being a preferred read for some and I can see it used in the classroom (some of the imagery describing that tree was worthy of a class discussion). So without consulting any of my fellow readers my vote is for "The Night Gardener".  This year, unlike past years, I have no vote for the Zombie pick.
