Publisher's 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 listeners right in the funny bone.

Loved the reader

It was read really well. It can be funny at time and filled with action. Book summed up in which Sebastian a very logical boy ends up going on a very illogical adventure. The only Warning is, there is a homosexual couple that pops up in the 3rd book. If you and your family are ok with this then this book is clean and really funny. However if you like to discuss this type of thing with your family before they read it in books then this review is for you. I gave 2 stars because I felt if the author wanted this in the book they should have it in there in book 1 and not take 3 books to get there.
