I actually bought this book at Goodwill as an "advanced reading copy", and thought that perhaps that was part of the lay out. In fact, I am not sure that it is not.That is the type of book it is.

This series has been really popular at school. That being said, I got a bit tired of the over the top secrecy and the author's notes to the reader. The story itself was fun with two misfits tracking down clues from a missing magician which lead them into a lot of hot water at a spa with folks engaging in alchemy and not afraid to kill a few kids in the quest for eternal life.

Would probably be appreciated by a younger crowd, such as 9 or 10. I found it a bit annoying to read after the first couple chapters.

This is a great book! I read it about a year ago and it still sticks in my head as one of the most unique books I have read. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys mystery, suspense, and a good laugh. The unique cast of character includes Benjamin a boy with synesthesia and Owen a butler who seems shy at first but really... well I geuss you will just have to find out. A great mystery book with a creepy twist. I can't wait to read the next one!

This was like something directly out of an adventurous questing dream put down in words. While found in the children's section of libraries and bookstores, it's a book that plenty should read. Pseudonymous Bosch, whoever they are, is the next Lemony Snicket. It's an engaging, real-life topic (synesthesia) blended with fantastic mysteries. Two ordinary children give it a lifelike surrealism, with surprisingly deeper characterization than an adult book would give. The author talks back to the reader with quirky, hilarious footnotes and in-dialogue intermissions, adding a whole new dimension of incredulous amazement. The story ends on an open note, leaving room for the sequels to come (and one already has and is just as great!)

OK--I think that this book is by the same guy who does Alcatraz and the Evil librarians--but what do I know? Enjoyed it simply because 1) it did give you some information that you may not know as a child and at least once encouraged you to "look it up". 2) Encouraged good behavior, manners, morals, etc. 3) was just plain silly. Yes I will read the others, just don't know when.

The fact that the author does not want readers makes this a book you know will be funny - very simliar to A Series of Unfortunate Events. Throughout the story the author continues to uphold his stance of not sharing too much of the secret to put the reader at risk, but he seems to share it all anyway! Clever and magical this book will interest readers of the 39 clues series and Magic Theif alike.
