The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict by Trenton Lee Stewart

For those of you familiar with the children’s novels The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart, you may not be aware that a prequel to the series is now in stores. It stars none other than the genius  narcolept Mr. Nicholas Benedict himself, when he was nine years old. I am about halfway through it and am loving the charming language and immediate allure of the puzzles and mystery within.

If these books are unfamiliar to you, try this post by my friend Josh over at Josh Mosey Writer for a very brief, yet perfectly concise review of the trilogy The Mysterious Benedict Society.

Below is a trailer by Little Brown.
