We stumbled on this series as the kids wanted some mysteries and we are reading them one after another. They aren't great, but the kids love "em. The "mysteries" are not scary, but still they keep the kids wondering what's going on. Another interesting thing is the pacing, the story is only 10% about the mystery and the rest is the 4 kids being wholesome nice kids having adventures. The gender politics are hardly advanced, but it leads to a good discussion of how things have changed since there father was a boy.

Good old fashioned adventure
Wonderful book. Exactly as remembered when reading it again a hundred years later. A gentle thoughtful stimulating book - by today's standards terribly proper and dated and too good to be true - which makes it an edgy politically incorrect thriller in todays PC obsessed world rather than a sedate and rose-coloured view of childhood initiative.

What's old is still new
I must have read this for the first time when it was just hot off the press. This was one of the first books that I read to my self and enjoyed so much. Imagine my surprise that my grandtwins were hearing it in their preschool and just loving it. On their trip down for a visit this summer they were anxious that they would miss it and not get to hear the ending. So grandmothers do what grandmothers do and get on line to look for a copy. They were thrilled when Alibris delivered it straight to their door.
