This story is way different from the movie. The book is about a kid going through tough times because he has been blamed of stealing a famous baseball player's shoes. When he did not steal anything. the boy's name is Stanley Yelnats. If you like this short summary why don't you just read the book. If you liked the movie you will like the book.

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Stewart, Trenton Lee.

Publication: New York Little, Brown and Company 2007 28 Date: 2007

This book is about four kids that have one thing special about them. One is really good at solving problems, the second is good at memorizing things, the third is good at getting out of things like if you are trapped and one of Mr. Benedict' twin's evil men are trying to capture the kids, and the forth kid is good at telepathy and reading minds. If you like action and adventure I would suggest this book to you. Added 12/03/2010 by Lycia
