After reading the first one, it was difficult for me to really get into the second one. I think that the repetition of mystery after mystery gets pretty boring but I can see why a lot of boys would find this book very fun to read.

What a perfect set for grades 2-4; short mysteries (2-5 pages each) solved by a 10-year-old boy. The format lends itself to a perfectly short read in the car, in a waiting room, or right before bed (after the big bed-time read-aloud). I wish I had discovered these sooner.
