The origins of Nicholas Benedict reveal themselves in this exciting prequel. I have to admit, I wasn't very eager to read this because I thought it was going to be boing, but wow was I wrong! From the first page I was picked up on a riveting ride and didn't get off until I finished the final chapter. The only reason I docked off half a star from my rating was because I found the discovery of the treasure to be a bit anticlimactic. However, this is still a must-read for any fan, and I highly recommend this book. My favourite character is John Cole, definitely.

This book is witty and fun! I could not put it down!
I loved reading about Nicolas as a kid. I think that it is funny how he is like Renie and Sticky! 😀

I really enjoyed this book. It was very well written and it's really cool to go back to Nicholas Benedict as a 9-year-old.It's hooking and interesting, though I think I liked the series a little bit more.
I would recommend it for ages 8 and above.

After reading the series, it was really cool to go back and see how it all began.

This book gives you some background information from where Mr.Benedict came from. The ending is more exiting then the beginning.

This book is awesome and full of excitment and funny moments for all to enjoy! It reminded my so much of the other books in the series! And I love how clever Nicholas is even with his narcolepsy! I also love how it takes John, Violet, and Nicholas and makes them into friends.......

I enjoyed reading this. It was exciting, fun, and touching. I just did not like the character Violet. She is annoying, oversensitive, and does not really help in finding the treasure. She is just a burden. Still, this is a great book.

Young Nicolas is VERY smart and an orphan. But he has one small problem- narcolepsy. He can't seem to make friends and he gets bullied all the time. So when he meets a boy who seems to like him, and finds a mystery that could change his life- he jumps right in.
