This book teems with the mystery and excitement, which every book should have. Walls within Walls is written with detail and care, as you will appreciate during the children's trek into the large and dangerous city of New York. While getting trapped in dark-flooded subways, followed by treasure hunters, and escaping dangerous areas, the children make friends with many different people. The artwork is magnificent and meticulous as is the book. I think there needs to be more of an introduction to the characters and their family. Otherwise the book is packed with excitement, action and adventure as Patrick, CJ and Brid find themselves in an exciting mystery in the Big Apple.
- it's the best book I've ever read. Written by a fourth grader.
I'm a mom, but I got it for my son. While he has not yet read it, I picked it up - and got hooked. I read it in a few days because I wanted to find out what the solution was to each puzzle and the final mystery. I enjoyed following the two kids as they worked out puzzles that the adults could not solve. The text was easy to follow and certainly accessible to the intended audience. I also enjoyed learning about New York and the early 1900's as various facts about the mystery were deftly woven into the fictional story. While some puzzles were immediately solved by me before I read the characters' discoveries, I still was entertained by the book and know my son will be, too.
I highly recommend this book to anyone- preteens or their parents-who enjoys a good mystery novel filled with puzzles along the way.
