I don't have this book on my nook but i have played it with a group of people in a class at school. It is such a great and fun book. But don't bother getting the sample. It just has the table of contents. It doesn't give you any idea wha the actual mysteries are like. GREAT BOOK!! A must have for everyone.

My 6 year old daughter wants this book so badly she even put it on my wishlist. What if i finnaly get it for her and then she does not like it? That would be wasted money and it would be to hard for her. If anyone is out there and wants to have a nook friend, sugest me. I have lots of fun kid books. You can tell me how to solve my issue:-)

With the right group of people this book can make for lots of fun on a car trip or around the campfire. Gets everyone thinking outside the box and working together to solve the mystery. We've even had a mystery go on overnight so that people were still asking questions over coffee in the morning.
