The Mysterious Benedict Society (Mysterious Benedict Society #1) by Trenton Lee Stewart and Carson Ellis
The Mysterious Benedict Society (Mysterious Benedict Society #1)

scout78, March 2, 2008

This is one of the best books I have ever read. As a junior high English teacher, I am constantly reading and searching for great new authors. Trenton Lee Stewart is a refreshing, exciting author.
I ordered this book online and was a little disappointed when I received it because I hadn't thought to look at the page numbers. This book is BIG! I worried about trying to get one of my students to read this. After finishing this gigantic book in two days I quickly ordered three more so I could hand them out to some of my students as soon as possible. This book is fantastic. A great mix of suspense and drama with the puzzles incorporated - which I think will really appeal to those kids who can't get away from their video games...making the book a game is a great way to get kids to read.

Can't wait for more.
