Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Before there was a Mysterious Benedict Society there was simply a Boy Named Nicholas Benedict.

Nine-year-old Nicholas Benedict has more problems than most children his age. Not only is he an orphan with an unfortunate nose, but also he has narcolepsy, a condition that gives him terrible nightmares and makes him fall asleep at the worst possible moments. Now he’s sent to a new orphanage, where he encounters vicious bullies, selfish adults, strange circumstances—and a mystery that could change his life forever. Luckily, he has one important thing in his favor: He’s a genius.

 

On his quest to solve the mystery, Nicholas finds enemies around every corner, but also friends in unexpected places—and discovers along the way that the greatest puzzle of all is himself.

Review:

"In this latest installment of Stewart's Mysterious Benedict Society series, nine-year-old Nicholas — boy genius and unfortunate narcoleptic — is in quite the predicament when he's shipped off to a new orphanage where bullies reign supreme and nobody seems to like him or his oddly shaped nose. But soon, Nicholas is working to solve a complex mystery with far-reaching consequences. Narrated by Del Roy, this audio edition never fails to entertain. Roy's considerable vocal abilities are on display as he creates an intricate portrait of Nicholas. His narration easily commands the listener's attention; without so much as a slight shift in tone or dialect Roy is able to ratchet up the intensity. Ages 8 — up. A Little, Brown hardcover."
