I liked this story. I enjoyed it because it reminded me of my brother who explored my basement. When I read it, I felt excited because I wanted to find out what would happen. I picked this book because it seemed like an interesting story. Julian and Dick always made jokes. George, a girl, sounded silly wanting to be a boy. Anne was always "scared" and Timmy was always fierce, like when he barked at Snippet. These five are in all 21 mysteries in the series.
Younger kids might not understand the enourmous words Ms. Blyton uses. Older kids or adults might think the story is boring. I recommend this story for kids seven to fourteen years old. I recommend this book because the mystery was the most interesting part. I think readers will like the mystery, too.
