User Review  - Rhonda Walsh -

Not only were my 8 and 10 year old homeschooling boys thoroughly engaged in solving the mystery of the book, they couldn't help but learn a little about the work of famous artists, from Rembrandt to Picasso. Also, I was pleased with the modesty of the selection. Read full review
