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.
