The Mysterious Benedict Society by TheStrangerInTheFog The Mysterious Benedict Society by TheStrangerInTheFog
Ok, so this is fanart for one of my favorite trilogies EVER, AKA The Mysterious Benedict Society, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey, & The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma :la: this stuff is seriously lacking in the fanart department ;A; and i mean, seriously? more fanart for some stupid books about a depressed/angsty teenager, a freaking SPARKLY VAMPIRE (I MEAN SERIOUSLY WTF), and a shirtless puppy on steroids than a fantastic trilogy that actually challenges the mind and makes the reader think?! WTF. but that's just my opinion. /end rant

but anyways, if you haven't read these, i highly suggest it, they're fantastic books!!! :D

hmm... i suppose this is based on after the trilogy ends, considering Madge (the falcon on Kate's arm) did not come in until the beginning of the second book...

either way, these books have been very dear to me ever since i started them in 2005 C:

kinda funny, i remember going around Target & looking for a book to take on our trip to New Mexico, when my dad pointed it out... i also remember lying on the huge bed in the cabin & reading it, completely absorbed & hardly aware of what was going on around me, while repeatedly listening to "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" by The Beatles C:

and i was reading the second one while first getting my ears pierced as a distraction... then my mom & i got some lunch at the Cheesecake Factory :D

and the third book was my favorite Christmas gift when i got it... i could hardly put it down ^^


YOU SEE WHAT THESE BOOKS DO? THEY IMPACT LIFE, K? K.

GO. READ. NOW. I COMAND YOU~

oh yeah btw left to right it's Constance Contraire, Reynie Muldoon, Kate Wetherall, & George "Sticky" Washington :)

i really like how Kate & Constance turned out ^^

Reynie's torso is too long :icondeathstareplz:

haha this is like, the first pic i've ever been able to draw well with people of different heights XD XD XD OTL

so... i'm rambling, so instead of reading this (I'm surprised if you still are), go read the books!! :D you won't regret it, i swear :dummy:

The Mysterious Benedict Society (c) Trenton Lee Stewart

PS i swear, if stupid DA sends this to my scraps i'm gonna... *incoherent dark mutterings plz*

edit: omg why do people still look at this it's so old

Hi again!! :D I just started a Mysterious Benedict Society Tumblr [link], and I was wondering if you would like me to feature your art on it? :) I will of course give you full credit. :) It's totally up to you. :)

I see you have red all the 3 books. I'm still (not even halfway) reading through the book. As I bring my book in my school. people tend to say to me (mostly girls) "hey, do you read this book? you should continue reading it. the story is very good!"
I'm reading this book, because my best friend (who is a girl) recomended reading this book, and so that I can write an essay about it (about social and culture, or language) but I haven't find any (good) research questions.

Can you suggest what topic (for the first novel) should I write for the essay?

sorry for too much asking and bad English hahahahaha keep up the fine drawing :D

They are all awsome. Trust me. And yeah, there is a surprising littleness (?) to how many fanfictions/artwork there is for these books. They are officially my most favoritest books ever.

This is awesome.

...I can't tell you how much I agree with you about the number of fanarts thing. It's really weird considering that a bookstore cashier lady told me the books are practically flying off the shelves. Oh, and I know how you feel about the trilogy (Book 4 is coming, though). Everytime I read or think about this book, I get so excited I feel like shouting and running all over my backyard. No joke :P

Oh, and I still don't know why The Book That Shall Not Be Named is so popular. I mean, at least Trenton Lee Stewart doesn't pick random words from a dictionary and use them to look smart and poetic. Heck, he actually knows the definitions of the words he's writing. Also, Kate and Constance beats that clingy damsel in distress (You know who I mean) by a longshot. Now, I'm not saying that we should all make rude (but funny) poems, but at least they actually make good role models! Also, Trenton Lee Stewart actually knows how to write a book that makes people think. It also has a very solid and interesting plot with interesting characters who many can relate to. Heck, a person with half a brain can tell which writer actually knows what they're doing.

Okay, sorry for that rant. I just had to say it.

But really, Twilight's plot actually had great potential. It's too bad that Bella was too passive and clingy, Edward's domineering, and Ms. Meyer just won't stop writing about how attractive Edward is. Ugh. I don't hate Ms. Meyer, but I hope that she learns to write better in the future.

It's about Mr. Benedict, though. The companion book filled with puzzles and stuff was released in November. I preordered it although by the time I got it the books already showed up in my local bookstore which usually is quite a small store... somehow. There was only one copy left, though... lol

Okay, now I'm going to rant...

Waaah! The adventures of the Society can't be over! They're my favorite book series! They have real morals, awesome characters and a well-thought plot, so why must it be over?!

Trenton, you're my role model, please don't tell me it's over... :'(

Sorry 'bout that, I just had to say it. lol
