    If you like your reads to be partially interactive, this one s for you The interaction is done on the reader s part, so you can decide not to take part of the game and still enjoy the book, but by playing along with the characters, you become even invested I honestly did not care to play the game along with the characters, because it slowed the pace at which I was reading, but in hindsight, I think I should have, bec

    This was a super fun read I loved trying to solve all the puzzles and clues along with the characters, but aside from that I had a few problems with it Of course, this book is written for 8 12 year olds, and the writing definitely reflected that Because the plot was so fun, it was easy to ignore the inconsistencies in the characters, and their one dimensional natures, but now that I m finished I can see those issues clear

    You know, I think Grabenstein missed an opportunity to have a great book instead of just a good one The puzzles and mysteries were fantastically well placed and a lot of fun to try to solve alongside Kyle and his friends, and I liked the positive teamwork message the book had to send As a librarian, I absolutely adored the positive library portrayal, the fact that it was a place that was fun and exciting and the clever way the Dewey Decimal
