Book Summary:

Featuring a mysterious society, a secretive past, and a pig in a teeny hat, The Explorers: The Door in the Alley is the first book in a new series for fans of The Name of This Book Is a Secret and The Mysterious Benedict Society. Knock once if you can find it—but only members are allowed inside.

This is one of those stories that start with a pig in a teeny hat. It’s not the one you’re thinking about. (This story is way better than that one.)
This pig-in-a-teeny-hat story starts when a very uninquisitive boy stumbles upon a very mysterious society. After that, there is danger and adventure; there are missing persons, hired thugs, a hidden box, a lost map, and famous explorers; and there is a girl looking for help that only uninquisitive boys can offer.
The Explorers: The Door in the Alley is the first book in a series that is sure to hit young readers right in the funny bone.

My thoughts!

This was a adorable starting book in a series. I love both the main characters but especially Sebastian and Evie. I loved how different these characters was and it shows kids how being both logical and also creative both have a place in life and it shows how important these traits for kids. I love the secret society elements and how Evie’s and Sebastian life connect. I loved the various adventures that they went on how it focuses on being creative and less logical. It was a really quick read and it was very adventure heavy. It also was good in quickly changing the setting and for younger readers would be able to keep their attention. I am so excited to read the second book in the series. It was a really fun read and excited to continue with this series in the future.
