Book Review: The Perilous Journey

Grade: A+

I am in love with this new series by Trenton Lee Stewart! The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey is the sequel to The Mysterious Benedict Society. That’s quite a mouthful, I know, but it’s seriously worth every word. My husband and I are both huge fans of this new series about a group of extraordinarily gifted children: Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance – each uniquely talented, smart and savvy in their own ways and together quite a team.

I love how this series shows kids that there are different ways to be smart and none are more or less impressive than the others. It teaches kids that there are a lot of ways to solve their problems and that when they think hard and care about something that they can accomplish anything – especially when working together as a team. What a great lesson to learn while reading a thrilling adventure story, huh? They’ll even pick up some great new vocabulary words along the way.

In The Perilous Journey the heroic foursome find themselves leaving home to rescue their beloved mentor, Mr. Benedict, and against all odds manage to leave England and travel to many new, exciting countries, facing off against some pretty terrifying bad guys, and learning a lot about themselves along the way. For four very smart children, they still have a lot of growing up to do, and like all children it isn’t always easy for them – or for their friendships.

I really recommend this series to any child or adult – I think it could be a really fun book to read with your children – or on your own. This, in my mind, is the new BIG series worth trying. I promise you will love it! You can buy the Mysterious Benedict Society and The Perilous Journey together at Amazon.com today for less than $20 with free shipping!
