Have you ever read a book that has three young orphans that are chased by an evil man who wants their fortune? If you haven't, you should read this book. This book is about three children that have a pretty unfortunate life. They have to move to a lumbermill, work , and eat gum for breakfast and lunch. There are many mysteries in this book that need to be solved. This book is filled with danger, suspense, and adventure.

When I read this book, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. This book was one of my favorite books because it was so interesting I couldn't put it down. My favorite character was Violet because she likes to invent things and so do I. If you read this book, it will probably be one of your favorites too!

I recommend this book to readers who love to read books that get you really interested and hooked. When I read the book, I really got involved with what was happening in the book. You will love this book as much as I did!
