This week, I have been reading The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart. This series is one of the most well-written and entertaining children’s series I have ever read. Although I don’t really care for the actual plot of the book, I love the writing style and how Stewart communicates the events in the book. He uses a mix of entertaining, descriptive, and simple language that is easy to follow and fun to read.
I thought Mr. Stewart would turn out to be British, because his book reads like an English book, but I was wrong. He actually lives in Arkansas. He has a series of short stories that were published in 1995, but other than that, all of his books are related to the Society universe.
His most famous works include:
And the short stories, which I can’t find on Amazon.
If you like to read good, entertaining literature, then you won’t want to miss this author.
