The French Confection

The French Confection by Anthony Horowitz

When Nick Diamond, and his brother Tim, win a trip to France, they think it's going to be an ordinary. But with Nick and Tim, nothing is ever ordinary. To start with, the train steward "falls" under a train. And that's only the beginning.

Another wonderful book by the great Anthony Horowitz. It's full of dark humor. Although its meant for younger kids, I am reading it for a second time. The book is cleverly a mix between a comedy and mystery. I think that it could have been slightly longer, as it is only 82 pages long, but apart from that, it was brilliant.

I am going to give it a 9/10
and an age rating of 9+
