The Mysterious Benedict Society
Trenton Lee Stewart
This is a book for older children, and children at heart. Fans of Roald Dahl or Lemony Snickett will especially enjoy this adventurous tale, although it also refreshingly stands on its own.
The Mysterious Benedict Society is made up of four unique children chosen by Mr. Benedict, who is indeed mysterious, to complete a very serious, very important task. They must use their wits and special gifts to act as spies, solve codes, and unravel clues, all while remaining undetected.
This is the perfect choice for anyone who is looking for a light, fun read.
