The Seattle Puzzle created by Gertrude Chandler WarnerThe Seattle Puzzle created by Gertrude Chandler Warner

The Aldens are in Seattle, also known as The Emerald City. Grandfather is working, so the Aldens are left to explore on their own. They start finding clues, which, of course, they have to follow. As they’re following the clues, they see people they know, or they think they see people they know. These people are all supposed to be back home. What’s going on?

What I liked

I’ve never been to the northwest so I did enjoy learning some about the area. I’d love to visit someday. The idea of all those mountains and all that green sounds wonderful.

What I didn’t like

There’s almost nothing worse than a person who thinks they’re entitled to everything. I feel like the Alden children are just going to expect to have everything handed to them. They also expect the ability to stick their noses in everyone’s business and to get answers to their questions instead of, “Mind your own business.”

Granted, this story is more about the Aldens themselves, I still think they should learn to respect the privacy of others.

Overall

I want a vacation.

Weigh in

What do you think about the Aldens sticking their nose in everything?

If your parents had had the means to take you on business trips, would they have taken you?
