    1 thought on “The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict

    1. Perhaps even more enjoyable than the Mysterious Benedict Society; I really liked the young Nicholas Benedict and his adventures at a new orphanage. It almost felt like I was back at Hogwarts. There's something captivating about following a new kid at a big, old fashioned school that is part fascinating and part scary, part welcoming and part awe-inspiring. Add to that some down-to-earth friends, some plotting enemies, some ambiguous teachers and some mysterious predecessors (who've planted a tre [...]

    2. SO THIS WAS GOOD. But at the same time- it was also so. painstakingly. slow. TBH NOTHING REALLY HAPPENS. Basically it's just about how Nicholas goes to a new orphanage and has to deal with bullies and then finds out about this lost treasure and then has to solve the mystery on how to find it. Which is fun!! And bouncy!!! And there's plenty of signature Trenton Lee Stuart wit!! But- like I said. IT'S INCREDIBLY SLOW, other than a few interesting twists at the end.However I do love 9-year-old Nich [...]

    3. I met Trenton Lee Stewart after a concert in central Arkansas several years ago. It was a funny experience because I had not read much of the Mysterious Benedict Society (if any of it) and I knew he was famous for it but couldn't think of anything to say to him. I wanted to smack my forehead afterward because it was silly to have a chance to rub shoulders with a literary celebrity but waste the opportunity by several moments of silence.Anyway. I read the MBS series and thought they were good. A [...]

    4. I don't know what it is about these Benedict books, but they make me feel like a kid again more than any other children's books I've read as an adult. I get wrapped up in them the same way I used to with my favorites back in elementary school. It's a really nice place to visit. That said, as much as I enjoyed learning Nicholas Benedict's early history, this book flagged so much in the middle third that I almost gave it up. I skimmed a lot because I didn't feel the clues were building fast enough [...]

    5. The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict is indeed a most extraordinary book that I loved from the beginning and one that I will definitely read again. It's a very enjoyable, fun, easy to follow piece of literature that readers young and old will love. This wonderful story has kept me up into late hours of the night, and early hours of morning, urging me to keep on turning the pages because I didn't want to put it down. All the characters felt real and present, my favourite definitely be [...]

    6. I cannot wait to read this book!I LOVE The Mysterious Benedict Society, and was SOOOO psyched when I learned that a new book was coming out.UPDATE:Simply put, I LOVED THIS BOOK.

    7. Words can't explain how much this book disappointed me. Trenton Lee Stewart. THE Trenton Lee Stewart. He wrote this book? Where's the Trenton I idolized who wrote The Mysterious Benedict Society Trilogy? Where is that brilliant author who opened my eyes to the world of reading? The book went from boring to boring-er. The setting was isolated in their own little place. Trenton forgot to use his imagination. Halfway through the book, the story went on and on and on and on about a stupid treasure. [...]

    8. I love that Trenton Lee Stewart writes smart, complicated kid's books, but it's getting awkward to have to sneak onto the children's library floor each time he releases a new Benedict Society book. Extraordinary Education was so good, though, that it was totally worth the skeptical looks the librarians gave me when I clomped through reading time in my Doc Martens.This is the prequel to The Mysterious Benedict Society trilogy, which I tore through last summer. Stewart reinvigorates a fairly stand [...]

    9. Having read the Mysterious Benedict Society, I always wanted to know the background of Nicholas Benedict, the founder of the society. This book gives all that and more. Nicholas is nine and has been moving from orphanage to orphanage for years. When his guardian drops him off at the new orphanage, she warns him to be good. The problem is not that Nicholas cannot obey, but that his conditions make him easy pickings for teasing. He has narcolepsy and falls asleep at random times. He also falls asl [...]

    10. Star Rating:4.5 starsPlot:It's about the life of young Mr. Benedict. We get to see how he handles being an outcast, what he does when terrible bullies make fun of him and threaten physical harm, and what he does when he finds out about a missing treasure that's somewhere in the orphanage. Characters:Nicholas: Awe! He's so cute! And amazingly smart, and a very dad reader. I wish I could read that fast. And a note about the other books in the series, I loved to see how all of the children (Reynie, [...]

    11. I *loved* this (and so did my 10yo). Young Nicholas Benedict was such a delightful character! I liked it even better than the second and third books in the original trilogy. I didn't want to put it down; it had some interesting plot twists I didn't see coming. Highly recommended middle-grade novel.

    12. Before Nicholas Benedict brought four unusual children together, he was just a lonely orphan himself, sent from one orphanage to another. While Nicholas’ mind might be extraordinary, his abnormally large nose and his narcolepsy make him a target for the other children. When nine-year-old Nicholas arrives at Rothschild Manor, he can only hope that things will become better for him. There, he makes a quick friend only to have him scared away by the orphanage bullies, the Spiders. With his photog [...]

    13. "The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict" makes an excellent example of creativity and ingenuity in an author's writing style. This book is actually the prequel to the "Mysterious Benedict Society" trilogy. You really must read the trilogy first, in order to catch all the little details hidden in the prequel. While we've so enjoyed the adventures and quests of Reynie, Kate, Sticky and Constance who form the Society --- and all of whom are very bright children that Mr. Benedict cultivate [...]

    14. What a delightful read. It makes me realize how much I miss the Mysterious Benedict Society series, and there hasn't been any new books from Mr. Stewart after this one came out in 2012. Now which mystery am I supposed to read?This one comes as a prequel to the series. Nicholas Benedict is 9, sent to an orphanage, and is friendless. There, he encounters possible friends, possible enemies, and clues to a treasure hunt that he thinks he can solve.It does not have the modern feel of the series, whic [...]

    15. I don't know why exactly, but I really love these books. 4.5 stars. This is the 4th book in the Mysterious Benedict Society Seriesbut chronologically it comes first. So if you are just starting the series, I would start with this one. These books are fun, sometimes silly, full of adventure, and a little bit of mystery. But above all else, I love that they have such a great human relationship angle to them as well. You quickly come to love and care about the main characters. The moral of this sto [...]

    16. I LOVE THIS BOOOOOOKKKKK!!!!I mean I would have liked it if they had put more detail into his life and made it go through his ages besides being nine. I'd also like to know why he never married I bet he was a strapping young lad! I really liked how it ended though and the mystery did not get boring for a second. I loved how they Incorporated a deaf character (violet ) and how violets swooped to the rescue when we all thought jhon was gone forever. I loved the book but I feel like I need more inf [...]

    17. It was mysterious, exciting, and an all around page turner. The last book in the Mysterious Benedict Society series gave you so much back story, and you wouldn't believe how much it matters. This book was definitely the best of them all!

    18. Amazing Book!!!! I have read some of the other books in this series. I suppose I should have read this one first, but I didn't, oops. (even though it is the last book in the series) I would recommend this book especially if you have read some of the other books in the series. In my opinion, you should read this book at the end so that you will already know about the main character. It took me longer to read this book because the beginning was slow, but once I got into it, it was a lot faster and [...]

    19. This was a fun book!! What adventures Nicholas had and how he figured things out was amazing!! I would recommend this book to kids of all ages!! I think my grandson Eli for recommending it to me !

    20. Storms, this book was good. It wasn't very realistic, but I loved the plot and the setting and how the characters interacted. (And Violet's cool.)

    21. The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict was a good book. Although there were a few things missing that stopped it from being a great one. In my opinion the book, like each of them in the series, was very slow and kind of boring in the beginning but as the book progressed it became more and more interesting. Because of this, it took a little longer for me to read and I enjoyed it a little less. Other than this, it had many other good qualities such as great use of details, descriptions o [...]

    22. I know of no other writer like Trenton Lee Stewart, nor will there ever be one. Stewart has a remarkable sense of wit, and there's never a situation he's incapable of drawing a vein of humor from. And yet his stories can be sad, sad in an aching, nostalgic, resigned way. His writing is able to tap into your childhood fantasies and display them, intact, in words, words so precisely chosen that they startle you with their vividness and perfect imagery. Above all else, he's a storyteller, and his w [...]

    23. I read the first of the Mysterious Benedict Society books last year with a book group I had with some fourth grade boys. Best book club I ever did! Picture this – 12 bouncy, loud, excited boys stampeding into the library, grabbing their book, and becoming completely absorbed in the story. For 30 minutes they read, without any prompting or reminding on my part. You truly could hear a pin drop! We all loved the mystery, trying to figure out the clues. I have not read the other two in the series [...]

    24. Nine-year-old Nicholas Benedict is sent to yet another orphanage, Rothschild’s End. He is an extraordinarily intelligent lad, with a photographic memory, mechanical skills, and logical thinking. He is also slightly small for his age, sports a larger-than-usual lumpy nose, and suffers from narcolepsy. Not surprisingly, he becomes a target for the trio of bullies called the Spiders, who rule, undeterred by unsuspecting staff, over all the children at the orphanage. In fact, the small staff is ra [...]

    25. THE EXTRAORDINARY OF NICHOLAS BENEDICT by Trenton Lee Stewart makes a compelling stand-alone novel, but for readers of THE MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY and its sequels, this prequel is a real treat. We meet Nicholas at the age of nine, when he is already an old pro at adjusting to life in a new orphanage, as his narcolepsy and night terrors tax an institution's patience. He joins 'Child's End, ruled by a pack of bullies called the Spiders, and makes a single friend, John. He is locked in his room [...]

    26. Nine-year old Nicholas Benedict is a force to be reckoned with. Coming to Child's End, or the Manor, opens up a whole new world for Nicholas. Of course there are "The Spiders" to deal with and the rules to follow and the chores to do, but there are also one or two friendships to be made and a real mystery to be solved. Somewhere in the Manor is the lost inheritance of the late Mrs. Rothchild - it is said to be a vast treasure and Nicholas is sure he will be able to find it. He knows if he can se [...]

    27. "The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict" is the fourth and final installment in Trenton Lee Stewart's the Mysterious Benedict Society series. The book is a prequel about Mr. Benedict troubled childhood. As a child, Nicholas Benedict was very smart, able to memorize anything he read. He loves to read, but unfortunately has a disease called narcolepsy. Furthermore, he is an orphan , and since his last orphanage, Littleview, closed, he gets transferred to a different orphanage near the to [...]
