A slow starter. When the author ties together a whole complete book, then he'll really have something, but the first book in this series was a strong starter and then trailed off, and this 2nd book is a slow starter and a poor (far too abrupt) finisher, but the middle section of the book really delivers.

I'd like to see more actual intelligence put down on the page as well. The four children are supposedly super intelligent, but Sticky's contributions are generally of the "he's super well read,

I enjoyed the first book so much that I wanted to read this one shortly after. I was delighted to see more of the Mysterious Benedict Society since the story is so enjoyable, and the characters are so fun.

The illustrations that start each chapter are charming, and I loved the cover that tried to incorporate so many things from the book. The illustrator did a great job.

The author never talks down to his child audience. It is always a good sign when a children's author does not talk down to them.

The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey is the second book in the series by Trenton Lee Stewart, following The Mysterious Benedict Society. This is one of the few series I hope will never end. When I read the first book in the series, I was completely blown away. I even compared it with the Harry Potter adventures and The Series of Unfortunate Events. There are lots of lessons to be learned, ‘outlook in life’ that must be observed by number of people and mind-blowing questions a ...more
I was very excited to begin The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey as I am a big fan of its prequel. The first Mysterious Benedict Society was quirky and exciting, and had actual surprises, which, I find, few books do. This one, however, was a disappointment from the start, and I found the task of actually reading all 440 pages of it (which I did) a rather daunting task. Gone was the mystery and suspense that made the first book such a page turner and I realized that much of th ...more

This is the second mysterious benedict society and they are going on even crazier adventures. Mr.. Benedict has gone missing to find a plant called a dustwarth to cure his narcolepsy, and has left clues for the 4 children to follow him there. But when he is there he gets captured from his evil brother Ledropha Curtain and this dangerous team of Ten Men. When The children get this message and set of on the journey. Taking a crazy boat ride and going through the dangerous jungle of an island. The ...more
Trenton Lee Stewart did it again! The second adventure of The Mysterious Benedict Society is just as clever and fun as the first! In fact, I would say I enjoyed the adventure a bit more, especially since I had a better understanding of Nicholas Benedict and his clever clues.

This adventure starts off as a reunion of sorts for the four child prodigies: Reynie, Sticky, Kate and Constance. However, what had originally been intended on a vacation with a challenging twist, turned into a life-saving mi
Penggemar seri petualangan anak-anak/remaja tentu tidak pernah lupa dengan Lima Sekawan, Trio Detektif, STOP atau Pasukan Mau Tahu. Kehebatan mereka membongkar kejahatan kerap membuat saya (yang ketika itu masih anak-anak) terkagum-kagum. Bagaimana dengan segala keterbatasan yang mereka miliki (sebagai anak-anak yang sering diremehkan), mereka berhasil mengungguli pihak berwajib dalam mengendus keberadaan para penjahat.

Seiring perkembangan zaman, para penjahat tentunya semakin canggih dan semaki
Both of my kids adored the first Mysterious Benedict Society book so they clamored to have me read them this one, the second, as soon as possible. Luckily enough, Nana & Pop supplied us with a copy. This story takes up a year after the events of the first story. The four kids of the MBS are reunited for what promises to be a fun surprise from Mr. Benedict only to find that Mr. Benedict and Number Two have been abducted by Mr. Curtain and his minions. So it's a rescue mission. I read about a ...more
Lately, I have been reading “The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey” by Trenton Lee Stewart. It has a lot of cool insights as you read along. That is probably what I like the most about this book. It makes a couple twists and turns that I never saw coming. There are a lot of very exciting scenes. I like when the whole team works together because they are very efficient and accomplish some really cool things. The book is about a group of children who are trying to kind their ki ...more

It’s been several months since the Society (Reynie, Kate, Sticky & Constance) had their first adventure in The Mysterious Benedict Society, and frankly, they’re bored! Nothing is going on until they each get an invitation from Mr. Benedict for a surprise reunion. Excited to be together again, the children happily head to Mr. Benedict’s house. When they arrive, his house is surrounded by policeman - something terrible has happened! Mr. Benedict and Number 2 have disappeared. The first clue, a ...more
Genre: Children’s, YA, Science Fantasy

Synopsis: Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance were to go on a scavenger hunt around the world for their one year anniversary with Mr. Benedict. Unfortunately, Mr. Curtain comes back into the picture, and their hunt around the world becomes a race against time as they try to stop Curtain’s plans and save Mr. Benedict and Number Two.

I found the sequel to The Mysterious Benedict Society as enjoyable as the first book. There are less puzzles to solve, but
My Summary: It's been a year since the Mysterious Benedict Society discovered the evil Mr. Curtain's plans to take over the world and foiled any chances he had of doing so. Reynie, Sticky, Constance and Kate haven't seen each other in almost six months but have kept in touch. After each receives an invitation from Mr. Benedict and a cryptic description of some sort of adventure, the group reunites at Mr. Benedict's home... only to find that he and Number Two have been kidnapped by none other tha ...more
In this sequel to the first book, the children Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance are meant to be reunited with their mentor Mr. Benedict, only to discover that he and his assistant Number Two have been kidnapped by his evil twin brother Mr. Curtain. Luckily, Mr. Benedict had previously planned a series of clues to his location, which is a key to the mysterious powerful plant known as duskwort, which, depending on whose hands it is in, can cure his narcolepsy or put a whole city to sleep.

i don't know. i wasn't that into the first book in the series, which is why i waited ten months before seeking out the second book. i only picked this up because i am running low on books i want to read at my local library. i'm finally hitting the wall where they are starting to not have the books i request more than 50% of the time. so i was like, "i guess i'll see what happens next for the mysterious benedict society."

this book takes place one year after the previous book wraps up. the childr
A worthy sequel to the excellent start to this excellent series!

One of my favorite things about the series is that the characters are kind to each other for the most part.

One of my least favorite things about modern children's lit is that so many of the characters are filled with needless angst. They don't say things anymore; they scream them. They're often in an impossible position in which they alone can save the world, and they quickly morph from underdog kid heroes into brooding, emo babies
I suspect Trenton Lee Stewart must have known that he was on to a good thing with his Benedict Society series - especially as the first was so very much the kind of book that would delight and mystify young children, while also not boring the adults who would have to read these books out loud until presumably their progeny fell into a dream-like stupor. With Perilous Journey, he takes the universe and characters first explored in the first book and expands their horizons, moving the story and th ...more
I don't usually like sequels, books or movies. Especially when the endings happy and complete. Something gets lost in between the books. A character changes, the writing is different, their is a different mood. I loved this sequel! I thought it was just as funny and lighthearted as the first. They're on a quest to save Mr. Benedict,who was kidnapped by Mr. Curtain. (who else would?) The clues were clever and kept me looking out for hints the entire time. You get to like Reynie even more. (Which ...more

The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey by Trenton Lee Stewart the second in a three part series. Reynie, Kate, Sticky and Constance are reunited when Professor Benedict goes missing. It's assumed he's Mr. Curtain's prisoner. All they have to go on is a series of cryptic clues, clues that will take them across the ocean.

All in all I loved the book but it took a little too long to get started. The book opens with a reunion of most of the major characters. It's played out to be a
This book was great. I have read all of the books in this series, and this book is awesome. It has all the same characters al the previous book, with some new ones. It is full of adventure, mystery, and trickery. If you read the first book in the series, you should read this one. There is lots of suspense, including a possible solution for one of the problems of (view spoiler)

Recommends it for: All middle schoolers.
Recommended to Connor by: Me?
I read the first Mysterious Benedict Society for no reason at all, maybe because somebody recommended it to me, maybe because I thought it looked interesting. I can't remember, but I do remember loving it. So, when I heard there was a second one coming out, I hurried to my library and put it on hold.

I started reading it and thought it was a little strange. You probably would too, but in the end, I thought it was as good as the first, if maybe a little different.

The story, like the first one was
While it doesn't quite match the greatness of the first book (sequels rarely do) - 'The Perilous Journey' does do a very nice job of adding some welcomed depth to the makeup of our heroes. Especially Constance and Sticky. Friendship, trust, loyalty and character development are the strengths of this story. Also fun are the travels to and around Europe, that in some instances read like a great spy thriller/mystery following our four adventurers on ship, train, air and also to a museum - all playi ...more
Ah. I miss reading this book already. I still like the first one better, because it's so much more interesting to read about new characters and their personalities. However we do discover more of them in the sequel. Reynie has trouble trusting the world, Constance has a new talent, Sticky is getting more vain (and more courageous), Kate sometimes deliberate about falling into temptation about the enemy..

It's more action packed, I guess, since it's sort of like a treasure hunt full of clues, the
Another good Benedict Society book. Very engaging but not quite a interesting as the first one. Maybe that is because there isn't so much mystery about the children as in the first and as in so many juvenile books there is lots of time building to the conclusion and then everything is just tied together too quickly in the end. It sometimes seems to me the authors tire of the subject and just want to end it so all the loose threads are tied together just a little too quickly and neatly. But that ...more
In the Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey by Trenton Lee Stewart is an adventure book about four kids, Sticky Washington, Kate Wetherall, Reynie Muldoon, and Constance Contraire, who go out on a journey so save their friends, Mr. Benedict and Number Two, who are captured and held ransom by the evil Mr. Curtain. I believe that the characters in this book seem like actual people. The kids run into Ten Men, who work for Mr. Curtain, always have at least ten ways to kill you. My fa ...more
This book was about Kate, Rynie, Sticky, and Constance trying to save Mr. Benedict and Number Two. In the story Mr. Benedict leaves out clues for the children so that they can find him. The kids figure out the clues to find him while also stoping Mr. Curtain from collecting a rare plant. This plant mimics another plant that cures narcolepsy and Mr. Curtain could sell it to people to gain billions.

I like this book because Kate now not only has her new and improved bucket but she lives on a farm
Well I did what I said I wouldn't and sought out this book at Barnes and Noble and did in fact but it.

The back of the book describes the second installment in this series to be an international scavenger hunt, and I with a love for travel fell right into it's pages.

I thought this book had a better villain plot with the ducks wort, for it seemed more believable than the first book. The second one also cut down on too much unneeded information, which was nice.

The characters are still interesting

Let's be fair. I didn't have high expectations of this book. I enjoyed the first one for its flares of fun and brilliance, but overall, this series seems to suffer from consistent flaws, mostly in the voice and exhausting logorrhea. Whereas the first book had plot so tightly woven that it approached holistic, this one starts out on such a weak beginning that the rest comes across more as a series of perilous events than a grand plot. (although the ending does come together nicely)

“Did the men steal the papers?" Reynie asked, fearing her response.
No, because they are fools," Sophie said bitterly. "They demanded to see the papers, and when I did not answer fast enough -- they were very frightening, you see -- they hurt me so that I was not awake. . . . When I opened my eyes they were still trying to find the papers. They did not understand how we organize the library, you see. They were angry and creating a bad mess. . . . The police were coming and the men decided they must leave. I shouted at them as they left: 'It is a free and public library! All you had to do was ask!”
