Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent! I personally love this book, suspense, action, and smarts are what I personally love! Trenton Lee Stewart is an amazing author, and I just love to get a good laugh out of these amazing books. Sticky, Reynie, Kate, and little Constance, they have such amazing smarts! And Nicholas Benedict, his puzzles are so hard to find out, but still obvious! It is so amazing! This series is great, I really recommend it to anybody looking for a great book. The illustrations are scarce, and unrevealing, so none of them are foreshadowing. Amazing book, great adventures. Even if you have read it before, you need to read it countless times more. Constance is also such a great poet, and the thought of a three year old psychic is really cool. I totally suggest you read it today!

[readers] will find this sequel a worthy successor." - Horn Book"Trust, friendship, human nature, pride, and courage underlie the story and add depth... This classic struggle of good versus evil also includes the many layers in between." - VOYA "...entertainingly quirky..." - Kirkus"Crafty and involving for readers as they figure out clues alongside the [characters]... every bit as chunky and satisfying as the first, this adventure will delight fans." - The Bulletin
