This book is fantastic for all ages. Trenton Lee Stewart does not dissapoint with his prequel to his phenominal Mysterious Benedict Society. Stewart's writing style is captivating and whimsical and fits his story perfectly. Besides being an exceptionally good writer, his characters and plot sparkled. Each character was unique and consistent and characterized beautifully. The plot was enthralling (however my ONLY negative comment about this book is that there were about 3 chapters in the middle where the pacing was a little bit slow, though the slowness was a bit necessary for the plot). The ending was a solid and satisfying one, all of Stewart's plot threads tied up beautifully into a wonderful little package that created a masterpiece of a book. While it is not essential to read The Mysterious Benedict Society before reading this book, I found it helpful considering I knew the main character better. I read The Mysterious Benedict Society when I was younger, and now that I am older I still found that I enjoyed this story as much as if I were still in grade school. This is a truly fantastic read for those who have whimsical minds and enjoy a good mystery. My only complaint is that I wish he would write more in this series! While the ending was satisfying I was sad to see the book end. If I could give it 6 stars I would ;)

Really good- but I wish...

This book was good but it was slow at points. I wish the treasure they were searching for was an actual tresure. The origianal Mysterious Benedict Society books were better by far and I hope Trenton Lee Stewart has enough sense to make more books to the original series....

I wanted it to go more into his adult years and how he picked Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance. I know i sound like a downer.... but I expected more.
