This is a great book. It is suspenseful and funny. You never know who committed the crime. My favorite character is Benny because he is always eating. He also always thinks he can figure out the solution to the mystery, but he never does.
I recommend this book to kids in second through fourth grade who love funny mysteries. It is part of the Boxcar Children series, so kids who enjoy these books will really like The Mystery of the Purple Pool. Gertrude Warner uses juicy words that help you make great pictures in your mind.
