I really enjoyed this book. It is a magical blend of mystery and just the right amount of magical adventure to keep young readers and their parents glued to the pages. The thrills and action are age appropriate for preteen readers. An exceptionally short young boy named Stuart Horten is about to have a wonderful summer adventure. S.Horten's family moves back to the town where Stuart's uncle, Teeny Tiny Tony Horten once lived and worked as a magician. Stuart finds that Teeny Tiny Tony mysteriously disappeared some years ago. With the the help of April, May, and June, the identical and precocious triplets who live next door, Stuart follows magical clues left by Teeny Tiny Tony to hopefully solve the mystery of his missing uncle. Book provided for review by Sterling Children's Books.

Book Review (ARC)
This was a pretty cute, quick read. I think that a lot of children will really enjoy the story and the Indiana Jones like clues that Stuart has to follow in order to find out the mystery behind his great-uncle Tony’s disappearance. There are clear cut good and bad characters and kids will have an easy time following along with who they are rooting for and who to watch out for.

I do wish there was more of the triplets from next door. They don’t show up in full force many times, but they were so entertaining I missed them when they weren’t around. One of the triplets was in the story more than the others and luckily she held her own! Overall younger kids will be able to grasp the storyline and enjoy the magic and mystery.
