The fabulous foursome readers embraced as The Mysterious Benedict Society is back with a new mission, significantly closer to home. After reuniting for a celebratory scavenger hunt, Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance are forced to go on an unexpected search--a search to find Mr. Benedict. It seems that while he was preparing the kids' adventure, he stepped right into a trap orchestrated by his evil twin Mr. Curtain.

With only one week to find a captured Mr. Benedict, the gifted foursome faces their greatest challenge of all--a challenge that will reinforce the reasons they were brought together in the first place and will require them to fight for the very namesake that united them.

      The Mysterious Benedict Society is going to have a reunion and everybody is excited, or at least until the realize that Mr. Benedict and Number Two are gone, taken away by the evil Ledroptha Curtain. Constance, Sticky, Reynie, and Kate know that they have to embark on a scavenger hunt to find Mr. Benedict and Number Two. This crazy ride leads them to a place called Thernbakkagen( I know, it looks like there and back again ;p ). After many long boat rides and an interesting reunion with Milligan, Kate's father who also works for Mr. Benedict, they're led to a practically unknown island, where they find Mr. Curtain and all of his crew. After many vicious battles, do they win and get Mr. Benedict and Number Two back or are they now captives too?!?!?! Find out in The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey, a fun read for kids who love long books, good puzzles, and plenty of humor.

        This book was even better than the first one. It had a suspensful plot of where the children making another brave attempt in order to stop Mr. Curtain and his allies.

                This book was amazing! It was obvious they would trick S.Q. Also, when they were getting chased by the salamander you could not put the book down because you had to know what happens.

                  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...

                      After being greatly intreged about the first in this series, I decided to go on with the series and found myself more in love. Trenton Lee Stewart has done a completely magnificent job on the Mysterious Benedict series! The gang meets up after a year of separation and find themselves on a mission that Mr.Benedict has left to find and rescue himself and number two from the clutches of Mr.Curtain! A true "on the edge of your seat" book!
