The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma

Author: Trenton Lee Stewart

Mr. Curtain just won’t give up, and in this 3rd installment of the Mysterious Benedict Society he has a plan to get his whisperer back. Everyone in the society must work together to thwart his plot, but when Reynie, Sticky, Kate and Constance are kidnapped the stakes are much higher. Mr. Benedict, along with all our favorite adults in the society, must figure out where the kids are being held and rescue them.

As with most series, the author’s content is similar to the first two books. We found this to be both entertaining and enjoyable. In fact, we both liked it better than the 2nd, although the first was by far our favorite. As mentioned above, the kids are kidnapped so be prepared for that.  It isn’t really intense or scary, and it didn’t ever feel like they were in any danger.   There is fighting and the 10 men’s weapons are still pretty nasty. There is nothing offensive, just a good clean read.

Enjoy and Happy Reading!
