Review of 'The Mysterious Benedict Society' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

Far be it from me to let loose with an undignified squee while reading on a regular basis, but this series had me scaring the cats with my glee. It is, hands down, one of my favorite series ever. Cleverly written, alternately hysterical and grim, and full of a right and proper respect for approaching life with vigor.
