Stuart Horten is the shortest ten year old in his grade, and if that is not bad enough, his name is written as S.Horten. Stuart moves away from his home with his parents to his father's hometown so they can be closer to his mom's work.
Stuart discovers many secrets in his new town. He discovers that his Great-Uncle Tony was also known as Teeny Tiny Tony Horten, a great master of magic and illusions. Great-Uncle Tony left a very special magic box to Stuart's father as a gift before he disappeared. The box holds many clues, including a note and three special coins that will unlock the secret to the disappearance of Great-Uncle Tony.
With the help of his investigative journalist neighbors, who happen to be ten year old Triplets, Stuart takes on an adventure of a lifetime. I recommend this book to all adventure and suspense enthusiasts. The chapters are short and the plot moves quickly.
