The author seems to like unpleasant things. The children seem to be smart, intelligent, and resourceful children because they know things like how to sail a boat and who killed Julius Caeser. My favorite part was when they foiled their uncle's plan. This book reminded me of when a small fire started in our big house.
People would like this book because of the great storyline. I recommend this book to strong readers who know vocabulary because this book uses extreme vocabulary.
