As if being small for his age and also having S. Horten as his name isn't bad enough, now 10-year-old Stuart is forced to move far away from all his friends. But on his very first day in his new home, Stuart's swept up in an extraordinary adventure.
This was a thrilling and fun mystery. Stuart was an awesome character with his own little agenda and a trio of irritating neighbors. At first I didn't really like the nosy lil girls because I felt they were just out and out rude to Stuart not even trying to befriend him before they published a "newspaper" article on him and his family but I did finally warm up to April when she became Stuart's partner in crime. Boy did he need help to because things just got so wild and way to much for one small child to deal with!

I look forward to reading more adventures with Stuart and hopefully the other two sisters will join in the fun and not be so obnoxious. I would like to get to know them better.
