In this second volume Nancy Brown has once again chosen and adapted some of G.K. Chesterton’s Father Brown stories for younger readersThe Father Brown Reader II: More Stories from Chesterton. The stories include The Invisible Man, The Mirror of the Magistrate, The Eye of Apollo, and The Perishing Pendragons and while they do revolve around murder they are still appropriate for a younger audience. The adaptations are that the stories are still Chesterton’s words almost entirely, but clarifications are made at times to make a part of the plot understandable. Included throughout the book are illustrations of the characters that are rather whimsical and match the story telling. Even though I have read the stories before they are very re-readable since Chesterton’s mysteries are much more than a simple whodunit. This along with the first volume is highly recommend for those who want to introduce their children to this great writer. As someone who was not introduced to Chesterton until late in life all I can say is don’t let this happen to your children.
