Trenton Lee Stewart, the author of the very successful Mysterious Benedict Society series, visited our school today. He is as nice as I hoped he would be.
I don’t know about you, but there is nothing more disappointing than meeting an author of a book you love and after meeting him or her, you wish you had skipped the event. The book is probably ruined for you.
But not so with Mr. Stewart. He gave an engaging presentation, was kind to every student, and patient with the questions he’s probably heard a zillion times before. I read and loved part one of the series, but plan on starting the second installment tonight.
