" Fun middle grade mystery/unexpected fantasy. Highly recommended! " said.

" The Mysterious Benedict Society meets From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. A perfectly-paced adventure story with a diverse cast of strong, smart kids with compelling and historically suitable struggles. Also: heartwarming. Chock-full of surprises, laughs, great lines, and not-cheap tearjerker moments. Thoroughly recommend. " said.

" Wow! Carol Goodman’s middle grade debut is a heart-pounding wild ride that mixes history, legend, magic and delivers an unbelievably exciting ending! Four unlikely heroes weave their way through Arthurian legends and the halls of the Metropolitan Museum of Art to untangle a plot that threatens their city, facing down monsters, witchcraft, prejudice, fear, and more.A thrilling, magical adventure that I couldn’t put down. " said.

"Pearl Harbor has just happened and New York is in a tizzy. Four kids with different backgrounds but all seem to be a bit alone in the world happen to meet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and discover a plot to take down New York. As they work together to find the missing pages of a book that will help them take down the bad guys and prevent disaster, they find that they have much in common with King Arthur and his comrades of old. Woven into this fast paced thriller is much history of New York, King Arthur's legends and the incredible Metropolitan Museum. Kids and their parents who couldn't get enough of " The Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler" will grab this one and not let go until the very last page. Diverse characters, rapid pace, a bit of history all wrapped up in a fairy tale adventure make this a winner. My thanks to the publisher for the advance copy." said.

" A little confusing from time to time and I think might be difficult for kiddos with vocabulary, but very interesting topic and premise. " said.

" I found the beginning a little quick, and also the early discussion of the code somewhat confusing, but a fun plot overall. " said.

" Great adventure & story! Love how the collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art & Arthurian legends are intertwined. " said.

" Solid fantasy-adventure story. Nice mix of Over Sea, Under Stone and From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs Basil...not quite as accomplished as either of those excellent books, but still very solid. " said.
