Reviewed by Elizabeth

Are you a gifted reader looking for more wonderful reading opportunities? Well, this is a book you won’t want to put down! A New York Times bestseller, Trenton Lee Stewart is one of the best authors you’ll ever read!

When the peculiar ad appears in the newspaper, “Are you a gifted child looking for special opportunities” many children take a series of mind-bending tests. Only four however, succeed, thus forming the Mysterious Benedict Society. The Society has one mission only they, as resourceful children, can accomplish saving the world. There are four children and one mission to complete. I cannot tell you any more. You’ll have to read the book to find all the answers to your questions.

Esther Gulli (an adult) has an interesting story to tell. Esther made a deal with her daughter that if her daughter read the Harry Potter books, Esther would read The Mysterious Benedict Society. She didn’t expect to enjoy it, yet she loved it!

“Real flashlight under the bedclothes material” rates Hornbook. This story is not a read once a week story. Once you pick it up, you can’t put it down! If anyone tells you to read this book, they’re right! You have to read The Mysterious Benedict Society.
