17. The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Deilemna by Trenton Lee Stewart

Once again, the four kids find themselves in a perilous situation with the evil Mr. Curtain trying to take advantage of their gifts and gain control of the world.  At the time, the children and their families are all living with Mr. Benedict in order to protect them from Mr. Curtain and his minions.  (Minions is a delicious word, isn't it?)  Of course, things go awry and the children find themselves in a prison where they attempt to escape and send a warning to Mr. Benedict.  The fact the Mr. Benedict and Mr. Curtain are brothers, and both suffer from narcolepsy just adds to the humor of these books.  And there is plenty of adventure and drama as well.  Great books for older children to read.  Rating:  4.5
