The Mysterious Benedict Society
Transcript of The Mysterious Benedict Society
The Mysterious Benedict Society is about 4 kids, Reynie Muldoon, Sticky Washington, Kate Wetherall, and Constance Contraire, and how they came together to form The Mysterious Benedict Society.
The Mysterious Benedict Society was formed to stop the Emergency. The Emergency is what most people in Stonetown categorize the horrible things that are happening into. Lately, the crime, government, and budget, along with many other things, have changed for the worst and no one knows why.
Once the group was decided it was revealed that they were brought together by a man named Mr.Benedict, to stop The Emergency. Mr. Benedict has determined that messages are being sent to people’s minds and causing The Emergency. The signals are also tricking people to not notice missing people or other bad things happening. The children are sent to the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened to destroy the machine causing this and stop the man behind it, Mr. Curtain.
The Book is by Trenton Lee Stewart.
Reynie is an 11 year old boy who lives in Stonetown Orpahanage Reynie is the leader of the group. He always has a plan.
George Washington, or as his friends call him Sticky, has a photographic memory. He might get nervous sometimes, but he always comes through for his friends.
If you saw Kate walking down the street, you would definitely do a double take. She's the girl with the bright red bucket. Kate keeps all sorts of contraptions in her bucket that she thinks might be useful like rope, marbles, a slingshot and many others. Kate is the strongest, fastest, and tallest of the four.
She is the smallest of the four and has a wonderful habit of insulting everybody in poems.
After a few more pages of questions all of which Reynie felt confident he had answered correctly, he arrived at the final question:"Are you brave?" Just reading the words quickened Reynie's heart. Was he Brave? Bravery had never been required of him, so how could he tell? Miss Perumal would say he was: She would point out how cheerful he tried to be despite feeling lonely, how patiently he withstood the teasing of other children, and how he was always ready for a challenge. But these things only showed he was good-natured, polite, and often very bored. Did they really show he was brave? He didn't think so. Finally he gave up trying to decide and simply wrote,"I hope so."
"You've read half the books in this house? The 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."
Reynie's face fell."It's not funny, Kate." For a moment-a fleeting moment-Kate looked desperately sad. "Well, of course it's not funny, Reynie Muldoon. But what do you want me to do? Cry?
"The Mysterious Benedict Society." Constance said, rising as she spoke. Then she left the room, apparently convinced that no more discussion was necessary.
And, as it turned out, she was right.
