The Lovereading4Kids comment

Here you will meet four very unusual children each with three things in common – all orphans, all incredibly talented and all utterly and completely honest. They are each members of the Mysterious Benedict Society and in this the second book the children are sent on another mind-bending mission that takes them across the world. Readers will be plunged into a world of puzzles and logic, testing their ingenuity and cunning as well as that of the four children. It’s fast-paced, brilliantly plotted and the characters are incredibly endearing in their own individual ways. Don’t let any 9+ year old miss this one. Like the first one it’s an absolute gem.

Reviews

Praise for The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey * .. .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. - School Library Journal (*STARRED review*)

Trust, friendship, human nature, pride, and courage underlie the story and add depth... This classic struggle of good versus evil also includes the many layers in between. - VOYA .. .entertainingly quirky... - Kirkus
