This story does not have a lot of pictures, but on the pages that do have pictures, the pictures are really detailed. My (Brandon's) favorite part is when Jack and Annie are getting chased by guards and they come to a dead end. You don't know if they are going to jump out of the building or get caught because this book is like a mystery. My (Garrett's) favorite part is when Jack falls out of the castle because it's exciting. This reminds me of the time when I wiped out on my Runt bike. If you read this book you will want to read the whole series. We think the author's message to the readers is use your imagination wisely because Jack and Annie don't use their imaginations wisely and that's how they get into all this trouble. We think this book is like Amber Brown because they all get into trouble in different ways. Jack and Annie get in trouble when they go on trips and Amber gets in trouble when she does not listen, which is very often.
We recommend this book to people who don't have good imaginations because Jack and Annie kind of teach you how to use your imagination. We think people who like adventures should definitely read this book because it is loaded with adventures. If you want to learn about Medieval times and this recommendation fits you, then you should read this book.
