I got to say, this book was sort of the let-down of the series in my opinion. It was pretty slow compared to the previous two, but it was still really cute, witty and adventurous. I would definitely recommend this series to any kid in elementary school (the target audience) because I think it's just the sort of kid-friendly action-packed novel series that would interest them.

"Should we go after her?" Sticky said, when Reynie had shared his concerns. "Maybe we could talk some sense into her, or cling to her legs or something."

"Okay, but please be careful,"he said at last. "I mean extra careful. Like if you were me and not you."

"Now listen, we need to be quiet as mice. No, quieter than that. As quiet as...as..."
"Dead mice?" Reynie suggested.
"Perfect," said Kate with an approving nod. "As quiet as dead mice."

"But you have said it too often, Mr. Benedict!" said Mrs. Perumal in an imperious tone that was quiye out of character. "And if you continue in this vein, I'm afraid we'll be compelled to cut our visit short. Surely there are other establishments that would host an entire troup of guests - indefinitely and without reward - and not feel obliged to apologize for it!"

"You've read half the books in this house? This whole house?"

"Well, approximately half." Sticky said. "To be more accurate, I suppose I've read more like" - his eyes went up as he calculated - "three sevenths? Yes, three sevenths."

"Only three sevenths?" said Kate, pretending to look disappointed. "And here I was prepared to be impressed."

"So what's your team called?" asked Kate, twisting her legs into a pretzel-like configuration, "We're called the Winmates because we're inmates who win."
Kate looked back and forth at Reynie and Constance, searching their expression for signs of delight.
"You gave yourselves a name?" asked Constance.
Now it was Kate's turn to be baffled. "You didn't? How can you have a team without a name?"

Violence: sure, violence, but it's not that bad.
