The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner’s Dilemma by Trenton Lee Stewart

The children of the Mysterious Benedict Society are back living at Mr. Benedict’s house, happily spending all their time with their best friends. Using the Whisperer for good, Mr. Benedict helps restore Constance’s very early memories about when and why she ran away which of course leads to her running away again. Mr. Curtain is still after the Whisperer, to use it for evil, and will stop at nothing, including kidnapping the children, to get it.

The third and final installment of the main Mysterious Benedict Society series, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner’s Dilemma, is just as fun and exciting with some brainteasers thrown in as the first two. My boys enjoyed every bit of it and were so excited that we didn’t have to leave Mr. Benedict quite yet (but could meet him as a boy in the prequel). I highly recommend this book to adults and children alike. The series makes an excellent read aloud.

  1. I read your review for this book on Amazon and wanted to ask you if you’d be interested in reading and reviewing Sign of the Green Dragon. Hate to ask you this way, but since I discovered your blog I thought I’d stick around and explore. Replying to your post seemed the best way to contact you. Thanks for the great review. You got me to buy this book.
