Secret #03: This Book Is Not Good for Youby Pseudonymous Bosch
Synopses & Reviews
When a dog arrives at Spence Mansion, Seymour is overjoyed. His adoptive parents, Ignatius B. Grumply and Olive C. Spence, are less enthusiasticespecially when Secret, the dog, begins barking all night long. Is it possible Secret just misses his old companion, the late Noah Breth, whose children are fighting like cats and dogs over their fathers money? Or does Secret have a secret that, in the end, will make the entire town of Ghastly howl with delight?
This third book in the 43 Old Cemetery Road series, a runaway mystery told in letters, limericks, a last will, and loose change, is guaranteed to please anyone whos ever tried to keep a secret.
Between the pages of this book lies the secret to the best-tasting chocolate in all the world. I promise, your taste buds will tingle. Your palette will sing Oh no, have I accidentally tempted you to read this book? I will warn you, however, the most delicious things are never good for you...and this story is particularly scrumptious
In this tooth-rotting adventure, Cass's mom has been kidnapped by the evil dessert chef and chocolatier, Se or Hugo The ransom...the legendary tuning fork. Can Cass and Max-Ernest find the magical instrument before it's too late? Will they discover the evil secret ingredient to Se or Hugo's chocolate success?
If you're tempted, take a taste, but just remember...this book is not good for you.
Take two adventurous outcasts, add one evil organization intent on discovering the secret of immortality, a pinch of puzzles, a dash of clues, and a deliciously evil dessert chef and the result is a recipe for disaster.
