    More fun "Larry" puzzles for youngsters. The Key Word and Other Mysteries is the first volume in this series, and this sequel book is on a par. Incidentally, Asimov wrote one more "Larry" story, titled "Zip Code", and published in the September 1986 issue of Boy's Life, that was never collected or anthologized. If you want to read it (consider this a sampler of the two books), here it is (it may also be found through Google Books): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1sCMV...

    When I reserved this book from the public library, I was surprised to find that the slim volume that appeared contained young-adult mystery stories written by the great Isaac Asimov. I almost decided not to read them, and that would have been my loss. Despite being penned for the young teen set (or perhaps even earlier primary school age), these were very well-written and quite entertaining. The protagonist's "voice" was very much in line with his reported age (14 or so), and yet he was proven t When I reserved this book from the public library, I was surprised to find that the slim volume that appeared contained young-adult mystery stories written by the great Isaac Asimov.

Despite being penned for the young teen set (or perhaps even earlier primary school age), these were very well-written and quite entertaining. The protagonist's "voice" was very much in line with his reported age (14 or so), and yet he was proven to be a capable and clever detective-in-the-making. Each of the tales in the book was fun to read and had a surprising twist. Don't let the fact that this book is a "young-adult" book keep you from the enjoyment to be found within. (NOTE: I also read "The Key Word and Other Mysteries", with the same enjoyment, and my review of this book applies equally well to that collection. Asimov is truly a master.)

    This quick and easy read is great for younger readers who enjoy mysteries. The thought processes allow for readers to guess at the outcome for themselves before the grand reveal at the end of each chapter. As always the moral of truth coming from less likely sources will be embraced by younger readers and amuse older readers. (It's also a great introduction to Isaac Asimov as an author.)

    Not the best works from ISaac Asimov. He read the book, but did not enjoy it. Not his style, not page turning fiction.
