Praise
"The plot-driven novel follows many adventures among the four, whose unique talents all come into play; readers will likely warm to each of them...Though the book is lengthy, readers will likely enjoy getting lost in this fully imagined realm."
"Low in physical violence, while being rich in moral and ethical issues, as well as in appealingly complex characters and comedy sly and gross, this Lemony Snicket-style outing sprouts hooks for hearts and minds both--and, appropriately, sample pen-and-ink illustrations that look like Brett Helquist channeling Edward Gorey."
"Smart kids who like Blue Balliet's books are the natural audience for this; but, read aloud, the novel will attract many others as well."
"Stewart's unusual characters, threatening villains, and dramatic plot twists will grab and hold readers' attention."
From the Publisher
Annotation The orphaned but prodigious Reynie Muldoon responds to a newspaper article seeking "gifted children looking for Special Opportunities." After navigating through a series of elaborate tests (which the reader must also solve), Reynie, along with Sticky Washington, Kate Weatherhill, and Constance Contraire, is inducted into the Mysterious Benedict Society. The four quirky children receive special training by the mysterious Mr. Benedict himself, which they must use to infiltrate the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened (L.I.V.E.), a school run by the nefarious Mr. Curtain. With traces of E.L. Konigsburg, Blue Balliett, J.K. Rowling, Roald Dahl, and Lemony Snicket, THE MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY offers a fresh new stage for precocious youngsters to do battle against the forces of evil.
First Line In a city called Stonetown, near a port called Stonetown Harbor, a boy named Reynie Muldoon was preparing to take an important test.
