The sequel to The Mysterious Benedict Society is the best sequel I have ever read. It is replete with action, twists and turns, riddles, and much more. While you can read this book just for fun, it is a great book to introduce to kids in school.

When Mr. Benedict plans a scavenger hunt for Reynie, Sticky, Kate, and Constance, he is unaware that his harmless hunt will get him captured and put his four little friends in danger. When the four children sneak out on his hunt to save their friend, they run into dangerous obstacles everywhere. They are always looking out for each other and making sure them themselves are always safe. With the encounter of ten-men, and past enemies, these four children have to try hard to outwit them in time to save Mr. Benedict. Will they save Mr. Benedict or will they get captured themselves and allow their enemy to take over the world?

The Perilous Journey is an amazing book and almost anyone will enjoy it. But don't read the sequel without reading The Mysterious Benedict Society!

Okay, but not as good as the first

I thought that the first book was absolutely phenomenal and when I heard there was a second one, I was dying to read it. When it came in the mail, I started reading and finished it within a week, (considering I don't stay up all night to read, I have school you know!; and I'm not a fast reader.) Anyways, I was disappointed. There was just no wow factor in the overall books. In some parts there was a small wow- factor in places where I was really nervous, (places I shouldn't say because it would give away the book.) I just thought it was a tiny bit predictable. It good but not great. But if you liked the first book and not the second, and want to read this remember what I'm saying.

Don;t take this the wrong way, I liked it and I would recommend it to other Mysterious fans. I just kept expecting a great book like the first one, but it didn't fill my expectations.

IF YOU HAVENT READ THE FIRST BOOK THEN WHY ARE YOU READING THIS RIGHT NOW! READ THE FIRST ONE FIRST! IT'S AWESOME! Read the series in order! :)
