The Name of This Book is Secret

11 year-old Cass is practical. Her motto is “be prepared.” She is so sure that a disaster is coming that she carries survival gear in her backpack everyday: a flashlight, topographic maps, rope, a first aid kit, matches, a dust mask, etc. Max-Ernest is also eleven. His hair stands on end, he talks all the time and continually tells jokes that aren’t funny. His classmates don’t laugh. They don’t even smile.

Misfits at school, the two tentatively begin a friendship one day on the soccer field when they begin exploring a mysterious box of test tubes labelled “the symphony of smells”. Cass and Max-Ernest discover what they think is a coded SOS message that sends them on the trail of a magician who owned the box, and who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. While on the trail, they are pursued by evil Dr. L and Ms. Mauvais, who are also after the box of smells. What do they want with the box and why is it so important? The answer to those questions and many more are in this book, but the book is dangerous.

The author has a warning for you, “Not knowing a secret is just about the worst thing in the world. No, I can think of one thing worse. Knowing a secret. Read on, if you must. But remember, I warned you.” Are you curious? Brave? Are you not afraid to lead a life of crime? If you are all of those things…read on. If you like Molly Moon or The Mysterious Benedict Society, give this one a try. Author: Pseudonymous Bosch

  1. it sounds cool i heard about it and i like how you have to figure out the magician wrote it before he died.

  2. such a good book I THINK EVERY ONE SHOULD READ IT !!It was cool to find out that the magician was the author.

  3. I believe, and I regret to say this, you are sadly mistaken. You see, Pietro Bergamo, is not Pseudonymous Bosch. If you have read the end of the third book in this series, you know Max Ernest has a sudden obsession for chocolate. This is even more stressed at the beginning of book 4 (which you can’t do until September 21) , where Cass is in a coma in the hospital, and Max Ernest buys chocolate from the hospital vending machine- ten bars a day on average- in order to cope. If you are catching my drift, you’ll soon realize that Max Ernest, is, indeed Pseudonymous Bosch. THe initials of Max Ernest are ME. Still, some will argue that it is widely known that Pseudonymous Bosch is Raphael Simon. This is still true, I will argueback, because all the names in his book are fake.

  4. omg omg omg! nabu i hate you and love you at the same time im in the beggining of the 3rd book.aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!its so good!And i actually did consider it was strange his innitials were m.e.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. I love his books so much they are sooooooooooooooooooooooo good I can’t stop reading them.
    His real name is Raphael Simon!!!!
    Can’t wait till the 5th book

  6. Omg this book is sooooooooooooooo good i wish i had my own copy but my sister owns it i just finished the first 1 i need to go buy the 2nd one and read it OMG i hate how it leaves you one a cliff hanger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL :) )))

  7. I want a fifth book to come out,the fourth book ends at an exciting part:

    Cass was certain this was it-the papyrus which the Secret was written on. There was only one problem. The papyrus was rapidly turning to dust.

    The
    End

  8. These are amazing books but until the fifth book comes out i don’t have anything as good as this to read!

  9. i love these books though i cant shake the feeling that this happeded before. like its real

  10. If you look at Chapter one in the first book, logic says that those are their real names, based on the capitol letters that aren’t by punctuation marks.
