The Mysterious Benedict Society

Author: Trenton Lee Stewart

I’m a sucker for juvenile mystery novels with heroes either in their pre-teens or teens. They let me live out a childhood fantasy. I’ll leave it at that.

I’m in an unusually non-writing mood so I’ll put my thoughts in bullet points:

  • Trenton Lee Stewart’s debut children’s novel succeeds in making children read and making adults feel like kids again.
  • The book contains great lessons in vocabulary thanks to the heroes and heroines.
  • The action here is more localized compared to 39 Clues which had the protagonists tour the world, yet it is no less sedate either.
  • Constance Contraire is one helluva gifted child haha.
  • The book makes me want to be part of the Mysterious Benedict Society.
  • The book makes me want to study Morse Code.
  • The book makes me want to read the other books in the series.
  • I want a kid like Reynie as my son.
