Only four children - Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance - succeed. Their challenge: to go on a secret mission that only the most intelligent and inventive children could complete. To accomplish it, they will have to go undercover at the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened, where the only rule is that there are no rules. But what they'll find in the hidden labyrinth of the school's underground tunnels is more than your average school supplies.
First time children's novelist Trenton Lee Stewart takes listeners on an adventure that puts friends, family, and foe to the test. Are you up to the challenge?

Lot of fun. Very imaginative. Characters you'll fall in love with and hate to leave at the end of the story. Great for adults that think most adult novel/thrillers are pretty boring. Funny. Can't wait for the next in the series...

I want to share it with my daughter
I read this as an adult (without my kid) on the recommendation of a friend. I liked the story, though it was clearly aimed a little younger. I'd like to share it with my daughter, who is almost 6, but I'm not sure if it would be just a bit much for her at this point.
There were some fun surprises in your basic smart, resourceful kids save the day in a new way without much adult supervision story. I would imagine a midlevel reader (I'm not really sure what age that would be) would get a kick out of solving some of the puzzles just ahead of the kids in the story--or just behind them.
I look forward to reading this and the next with my kid. I'm not sure if I would read the next on my own as an adult, but I would recommend the first to an adult alone.
