When this peculiar ad appears in the newspaper, dozens of children enroll to take a series of mysterious, mind-bending tests. (And you, dear reader, can test your wits right alongside them.) But in the end just four very special children will succeed. Their challenge: to go on a secret mission that only the most intelligent and resourceful children could complete. To accomplish it they will have to go undercover at the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened, where the only rule is that there are no rules.
As our heroes face physical and mental trials beyond their wildest imaginations, they have no choice but to turn to each other for support. But with their newfound friendship at stake, will they be able to pass the most important test of all?
Welcome to the Mysterious Benedict Society.
This book has been a favorite of mine for a long time. The author, Trenton Lee Stewart, has also written 2 more books in this series as well as a prequel. Each one is better than the next! The characters, Reynie, Constance, Kate, and Sticky are relatable and make the story so interesting. I found that I literally couldn't put this down and read it in only a few days.
The writing in this book is so detailed and puts you into the story. I felt like I was in the book and watching all of the events unfold. I also love everything that happens to the Mysterious Benedict Society! This story is so original and thrilling, and I love it because of the creative adventures the readers experiences.
I highly recommend this book! It is one of the best books I have ever read!
