Book Series Review - The Mysterious Benedict Society

A fabulous book series that appeals to all ages!

The Mysterious Benedict Society
by: Trenton Lee Stewart 

When she spots the advertisement in the newspaper, Reynie Muldoon’s tutor, Miss Perumal, suggests that Reynie try for the school.  Reynie is an orphan living at Stonetown Orphanage.  He is very bright and the advertisement calls for gifted children to apply for special opportunities.  Reynie agrees to give it a try.  The testing process is rather odd but he passes all the tests.  In the end, only four children are chosen from the hundreds who tested.  George “Sticky” Washington is a rather shy boy with a great memory. Kate Weatherall is a gifted athlete who carries a large bucket of objects with her.  Constance Contraire is a girl with a strong personality and a quick wit.  The four of them finally meet Mr.  Benedict.  He tells them that something very strange is going on and he needs gifted children to help.  The children must agree to help or they leave.  Reynie realizes that all the children are loners; orphans and runaways with no one to really miss them.  The children agree to work with Mr Benedict and then he lets them know what is going on.
