8 out of 10

This wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but it was still an enjoyable little mystery story. Ben and Ned's relationship as friends who've been together hundreds of years is sweet. The mystery is engaging if on occasion a bit predictable. My biggest complaint about this book is that it's a bit cheesy. I can be a bit more forgiving about Jacques' slight tendency toward cheesiness in the Redwall books because of their being fantasy, but that doesn't carry over well into a story about "real" people. Here's a crowd of people desperately worried about the demise of their village and in the process of solving a complicated puzzle to save it, yet they seem all too willing to put their task on hold to enjoy large and frequent meals and desserts and teas of all sorts. I realize this book is aimed at a younger crowd then say me, but I feel like even ten years ago I would have felt a bit condescended to by this book. Nevertheless, I can't seem to help myself enjoying Jacques' books even in all the cynicism of my "advanced" age. He creates lovable whole communities of characters and always manages to keep you enough in suspense that you don't want to put the book down.

This will be headed out to CdnBlueRose who took it out of the Teen VBB. Sorry for the wait!

This was a cute book, but again, not what I was expecting. I guess I thought it would have more to do with the Flying Dutchman than just using it as a jumping off point.

The mystery was, admittedly, a bit cheesy, and I didn't quite feel that the lesser characters were quite as believable (they were about to loose their homes and they did nothing?) but I still enjoyed it nonetheless.
