Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fabulous foursome readers embraced as The Mysterious Benedict Society is back with a new mission, significantly closer to home.

After reuniting for a celebratory scavenger hunt, Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance are forced to go on an unexpected search — a search to find Mr. Benedict. It seems that while he was preparing the kids' adventure, he stepped right into a trap orchestrated by his evil twin, Mr. Curtain.

With only one week to find a captured Mr. Benedict, the gifted foursome faces their greatest challenge of all — a challenge that will reinforce the reasons they were brought together in the first place and will require them to fight for the very namesake that united them.

Review:

"[N]ot just a rip-roaring adventure with plenty of clever twists and hair's-breadth escapes, but also a warm and satisfying tale about friendship." School Library Journal

Review:

"[P]age-turning tension. It's this roller coaster, along with the essential goodness of the characters (except, perhaps, for Constance), that will draw kids to this breathless follow-up." Booklist

Review:

"[A]nother grand adventure....Though still entertainingly quirky, this second doorstopper episode has more of an air of trading on the previous one's cleverness than building on it." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Readers charmed by the first Mysterious Benedict Society's unexpected plot twists and quirky details will find this sequel a worthy successor." Horn Book

Synopsis:

In this sequel to The Mysterious Benedict Society, the fabulous foursome is back with a new mission. With the puzzles, games, and irrepressible sense of adventure of his first book, Stewart delivers a heartfelt, high-speed trip around the world. Illustrations.
