    This book brought back my love for reading. When four kids, Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance try out for a test in a ad, they are the only ones who passed. It's like a Sherlock Holmes book for kids. AMAZING. At least, so far.... Well anyways, up to where I read, The 4 kids form their own group, because they have to work together to stop Mr.Curtain, someone who was evil from the Institute Here's a sample of the "tricks" they put in. My favorite part: CROSS THE ROOM WITHOUT SETTING FOOT ON A BLUE OR BLACK SQUARE. Reynie looked down. On the cement floor just inside the door, where he now stood, was a large red circle. On the other side of the room, by the opposite door, was another red circle. Between these circles the floor resembled a giant checkerboard, with alternating rectangles of blue, black, and yellow. Reynie studied the pattern. There was far more blue and black than yellow. So much more, in fact, that he soon realized it would be impossible to cross the room without stepping on blue or black. The yellow parts were so widely scattered that he doubted even a kangaroo could hop from one to the other. He looked at the sign again, and after a moment’s consideration, he laughed and shook his head. Then he strode confidently across the room, into the other red circle, and out the far door. Sticky and Milligan stood waiting for him beyond the door. They had been watching him secretly through tiny holes in the wall. Sticky looked confused and started to ask Reynie something, but Milligan shushed him. “You boys can watch, but you must be quiet,” he said. He went away to tell Kate it was her turn. Moments later they saw Kate step boldly into Room 7-B. After reading the sign, she studied the floor, considering whether she might manage to leap from yellow to yellow. At last she shook her head, rejecting the idea. Next she looked from one door to the other, gauging the distance. Then, taking the length of rope from her bucket, she fashioned a loop at the end, and with one expert throw lassoed the doorknob at the far side of the room. Fastening the other end to the doorknob behind her, she pulled the rope tight, knotted it securely, and climbed up. “Now, if I only had that paddle,” she said aloud to herself as she walked along the rope, “I could hold it out in front of me for balance.” Indeed, a paddle might have helped, for halfway across the room she nearly fell (the boys caught their breath), but after wobbling back and forth and wheeling her arms around, she recovered. After a few more careful steps, she hopped down into the other red circle. “Wow!” Sticky whispered. “She did it!” But before Kate could join the boys, Milligan appeared and took her back to the starting point to try again, this time without her rope, which he informed her would be returned upon completion of the test. “That’s hardly fair,” Sticky whispered. “Nobody told her she couldn’t use a rope.” Kate, meanwhile, was removing all the items from her bucket and stuffing them into her pockets. When she’d finished, her pockets bulging ridiculously, she unscrewed the handle from her bucket and tucked it through her belt. Then she was ready. Kicking the bucket onto its side, she hopped onto it and began rolling it forward with her feet, like a circus bear balancing on a ball. Rolling first this way, and then that, she zigzagged across the room to the other red circle. Reynie and Sticky looked at each other in awe. Who was this girl? Yet once again, as Kate reattached the bucket handle and emptied her pockets, Milligan entered the room. He returned her to the starting circle, this time taking away her bucket and tools, which she handed over with evident reluctance. She recovered quickly, however. Before Milligan had even closed the door behind him, Kate shrugged and cracked her knuckles, flattened her palms against the cement, and lifted her feet into the air above her. And this was how she crossed the room, walking on her hands, not once setting foot upon the floor. “Never mind,” said Milligan when she opened the door. He handed her bucket back. “You pass.” “What I don’t understand,” Sticky was saying to Reynie as they followed Milligan down a dark stairway, “is how you passed that test. I’m glad, of course, but I don’t see how you did it. I crossed on my hands and knees so my feet didn’t touch any blue or black squares, and Kate did her acrobat tricks..

    The Mysterious Benedict Society is a great book for those who seek puzzle-solving books. It starts out with a boy named Reynard Muldoon, otherwise known as Reynie. He sees a mysterious ad in the newspaper that leads him to take a series of tests that are supposed to challenge and choose four talented children to help. Of course, Reynie is one of these children, along with Kate and her bucket, Sticky with his facts, and Constance with her constant whining and complaining. These children are all alone in some way. Reynie is an orphan, Kate is also an orphan (or is she?), Sticky was “replaced” by money, and Constance is also an orphan. These four miraculous children meet Mr. Benedict, who is the one who designed the tests. He tells them why they are here and the problem that is rising. An evil man is using the voice of a child to implant ideas into people’s brains that will eventually lead to him taking over the world with everyone under his control. He uses children and his Whisperer to send these messages out because the voice of a child is easily ignored and people do not recognize it as something important. This evil man, known to the world as Mr. Curtain, runs a gifted student school called the Institute to pick the most gifted minds to send these messages using the Whisperer. He is almost down with his plan, as he has recorded all the messages and is ready to send the messages at full blast. The only person who knows what he is up to is Mr. Benedict, who is going to send the four children to the Institute to spy and stop Mr. Curtain. While inside, the children face problems like meeting jealous people, suspicious people, and more. Also, the children learn that Mr. Benedict has a twin, who is… If you want to find out who his twin is, if Reynie and his friends will stop Mr. Curtain, or if Mr. Curtain successfully takes over the world, you must read the Mysterious Benedict Society. I rate this book 5 stars because of the action and puzzles and recommend this book to anyone wanting a good book. This is a wonderful book and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

    Reynie, Constance, Kate, and Sticky are safe now- (yes, you knew it was coming) not for long... They are supposed to be playing a a huge scavenger hunnt Mr. Benedict made for them-with adult supervision- that is, they were supposed to, until they ran away. There they are, with no adults, exploring the world, trying to find Mr. Benedict. And, Mr. Curtain has help. This one is just as good as the first, and that, my friends, is saying something. READ THIS! Or else...

    Big Nate is cool, I guess. But there's something in the book that bothers me... But never mind. Let's get started...So, "you're such a slob." said Francis, Nate's best friend. Nate looks at him like his locker wasn't the messiest thing he's ever seen. "Are you talking to me?" Nate asks. So that goes to say that Nate is clueless that he was a pig. At science class, Francis gets an A for his quiz so Nate thinks he's getting an A too. But Mr Galvin calls him over to his desk instead. He failed his Quiz because of his sloppiness. He really doesn't know this messiness could lead to big problems...after class, they went to the yearbook meeting. Last year's yearbook stank on ice because it was being run by Nick Blondsky. So the new editor was bound to be an improvement...But...GINA ended up as editor so Nate nominates FRANCIS as editor when he realizes Gina would make the yearbook all about herself. In doing so, he also asks Francis to ask Mrs Godfrey for the camera. So Francis gives the camera to Nate...but who KNOWS what Nate could do to the camera with his sloppines...But when things go bad, its Nate's job to fix everything...

    lycanroc9's book review was featured in Big Nate: In a Class by Himself.
    I really liked this book. It was awesome! ok...let's get started...So its about this boy named Nate Wright. He faces off Mrs. Godfrey, the social studies teacher, in hopes of skipping the quiz he THINKS he has. But then he learns that he DOESN'T have the quiz and ends up biffing Francis in the head when he says he actually LIKES tests. But when he gets to school, he realizes he forgot his lunch at home: "Its not here! You've gotta be KIDDING me!" I recall him saying, so Teddy shares some of his lunch, which includes a fortune cookie. Nate eats the fortune cookie during class, which causes the class pet, Gina, to call on Mrs. Godfrey who walks up to Nate's desk in order to scold him. Luckily, Nate manages to swallow it before she peeks into his mouth. And guess what fortune he gets out of the cookie? 'YOU WILL SURPASS ALL OTHERS' Says the little slip of paper. Nate was delighted! So he keeps trying in vain to make it happen. You will have to read it yourself to find out if it will or not. I recommend this book for people who enjoy comics.
