Tales of a Bookworm Posts

The Mysterious Benedict Society is written by Trenton Lee Stewart and published in 2007.  I had seen the book prominently featured in book stores and just recently picked it up to read.   The Mysterious Benedict Society is a great children’s book, mainly because Stewart creates a world that is easy to get lost in.




Also, I love when a book creates a world that can be dangerous with characters are smart, resourceful and strong. The book is in the same vein ofHarry Potter with a very crafted and detailed world that makes it easy for readers to fall into.  Also, it reminded me of The Giver by Lois Lowry.

The main characters of the book, Constance, Sticky, Kate and Reynie all answer a mysterious ad in the paper.  The paper advertises for gifted children who are looking for “Special opportunities.”
