Reviews for Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict

Publishers Weekly Reviews 2012 June #4

In this latest installment of Stewart's Mysterious Benedict Society series, nine-year-old Nicholas--boy genius and unfortunate narcoleptic--is in quite the predicament when he's shipped off to a new orphanage where bullies reign supreme and nobody seems to like him or his oddly shaped nose. But soon, Nicholas is working to solve a complex mystery with far-reaching consequences. Narrated by Del Roy, this audio edition never fails to entertain. Roy's considerable vocal abilities are on display as he creates an intricate portrait of Nicholas. His narration easily commands the listener's attention; without so much as a slight shift in tone or dialect Roy is able to ratchet up the intensity. Ages 8-up. A Little, Brown hardcover. (Apr.)
