    Four orphans travel together and solve mysteries, and in this graphic novel edition, the younger boy, Benny, finds a golden locket in the sand with the help of a new acquaintance’s metal detector. The siblings try to find the rightful owner of the locket and are led to the mysterious castle-like house located at the edge of town. At the house they meet a mysterious woman who doesn’t seem to have much information to give away, but after some nudging from the children, they are able to dig up mor Four orphans travel together and solve mysteries, and in this graphic novel edition, the younger boy, Benny, finds a golden locket in the sand with the help of a new acquaintance’s metal detector. The siblings try to find the rightful owner of the locket and are led to the mysterious castle-like house located at the edge of town. At the house they meet a mysterious woman who doesn’t seem to have much information to give away, but after some nudging from the children, they are able to dig up more clues for their investigation. The story is presented in the form of a graphic novel, with three to four frames per page. The outlines for the illustrations are drawn, and they are filled in with a computer-based program. The text is Comic Sans throughout, which I personally didn’t like. The frames are solid black lines and there is no additional artwork surrounding them. I felt that the plot of the graphic novel had quite a few holes, leaving the reader feeling slightly lost. Also, it was a poorly thought-out story progression because of the choice of characters in specific scenes and speech dialogues. Overall, I thought it was a low-quality story due to too many issues.
