Description-

  • The fearsome foursome is back in the second installment of the New York Times bestselling series praised by Rick Riordan!


    The Mysterious Benedict Society is up against a new mission, significantly closer to home. After reuniting for a celebratory scavenger hunt, Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance are forced to go on an unexpected search—a search to find Mr. Benedict. It seems that while he was preparing the kids' adventure, he stepped right into a trap orchestrated by his evil twin Mr. Curtain.
    With only one week to find a captured Mr. Benedict, the gifted foursome faces their greatest challenge of all—a challenge that will reinforce the reasons they were brought together in the first place and will require them to fight for the very namesake that united them.

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books otter - Reynie, Constance, Kate, and Sticky are safe now- (yes, you knew it was coming) not for long... They are supposed to be playing a a huge scavenger hunnt Mr. Benedict made for them-with adult supervision- that is, they were supposed to, until they ran away. There they are, with no adults, exploring the world, trying to find Mr. Benedict. And, Mr. Curtain has help. This one is just as good as the first, and that, my friends, is saying something. READ THIS! Or else...

    Starred review from May 1, 2008
    Gr 5-7-What was supposed to have been a reunion with Mr. Benedict turns into trouble for the four young heroes of "The Mysterious Benedict Society" (Little, Brown, 2007). Mr. Benedict and his assistant Number 2 have been kidnapped by the evil Mr. Curtain while abroad, so Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance set off to rescue him, aided by a set of clues Mr. Benedict left before his abduction. Adventure and danger await the four onboard an unusual ship, at a castle in Portugal, in the Netherlands, and finally on a mysterious island, where they fall into the hands of Mr. Curtain and his henchmen. It is a combination of courage and their amazing talents that allows the youngsters to squeak out of every predicament. The action takes a while to get going in earnest as more attention is given to the worries and thoughts of the children and to their interactions with the various helpful, eccentric, or nasty adults they meet in their travels. They also learn to understand themselves and one another a little better by the end of their harrowing journey. As a result, this is not just a rip-roaring adventure with plenty of clever twists and hair's-breadth escapes, but also a warm and satisfying tale about friendship."Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library"

    The daring foursome from the well-received The Mysterious Benedict Society (2007) returns in a second perilous adventure. As the book opens, the children reunite at Mr. Benedicts home, where he has arranged a treasure hunt. Alas, they discover that Benedict and his assistant are being held captive somewhere, and dire consequences will result if Benedicts evil twin doesnt receive the information he desires in four days. The children undertake a worldwide journey to save Benedict and find the duskwort that will cure his narcolepsy. Lots of backstory is needed to set up this sequel, which makes for a choppy beginning. In the previous book, the protagonists personal stories provided heft, but this is pure adventurelots of racing, scheming, fighting. Punches are pulled on the violence front, but the threat is always there, creating page-turning tension. Its this roller coaster, along with the essential goodness of the characters (except, perhaps, for Constance), that will draw kids to this breathless follow-up.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2008, American Library Association.)
