I reviewed this for Early Reviewers. While this is a great, short read for middle children, the characters needed more depth. The story line was good though and the mystery was interesting. I would recommend this to my students. ( )

A strange quest between grandfather and grandson that leaves the reader unsure if it's a true setup or if the narrator's in trouble. A quick read, but overall not something I can recommend. ( )

I didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. It was a bit slow and did pick of speed, but the ending was flat. The characters ages were a bit younger than I was expected. It has a nice cover and feel to it, but it lacked the depth needed for a really good mystery feel it was going for. I would have much rather it been prolonged a bit more clues, a single mystery, older main character, more details, and more adventure. I say this book needs a bit more develop for it to make my top 20.

This story was so great. Comes from a very brilliant author, and the conflicts are so well thought. I will definitely be recommending these to all my friends and family. ( )

The Missing Skull is written for children. It is a mystery story that is entertaining with a twist I did not expect and I read a lot of mysteries.

It is the story of a young boy and his grandfather. The grandfather has decided that each of his seven grandchildren will be taken on a special adventure set up by the grandfather that is tailored to the interests of the child. The child is into exploring and mysteries, so the grandfather takes him on a trip to "solve" a mystery, but things go a little off and the adventure begins.

Very enjoyable ( )
