Book Review – The Six Musketeers: Paris by Mughda Aggarwal

The Six Musketeers: Paris by Mughda Aggarwal is an engrossing children’s book published on Bribooks platform. It is a short colourful novella with pictures. The storyline of the book brims with adventure, action, mystery, agents, and detectives. The Six Musketeers refer to six teenager friends. The novella features Emma and Lily in lead characters.

As the story commences, Emma grows curious about his brother Alex’s secret activities in his room. She overhears him being going to Paris. As Emma insists, Alex and Lily take her along with them. When they reach Paris, Mr. Quinn tells them about a secret mission and it can be done by children only.

There the team of teenage agents grows. They meet Jamie, Jordon, and Melody. Teams are formed. They live and get training together. That part of being together for training and mission is funnily captured, it shows no matter where ever young hearts dwell, they never make it boring. Their excitement to deliver the mission perfectly was palpable throughout the plotline. The way they make fun of each other while focusing on the work is commendable.

Mr. Quinn informs children that their rival company ILOV has stolen data files. Only children can bring them back as the rival company’s security system will be light towards children. Mr Quinn helps them in making plans for the mission and also provides gear and training to handle robots and other unexpected dangerous if they come across.

For young minds the task can be daunting if they fail in proper execution. The story focuses more on intel part, their clubbing and preparation for the mission. Can the team of teenagers bring those files? Or will there be any sudden surprise for them to spoil their plans? Can they defend themselves if any urgency falls on them?

The young author has kept the narration fast-paced and her choice of words in the story is relevant and nudges the story ahead smoothly. The story is readable, with proper emphasis being given on all aspects of narration with a right set of point of views.

The USP of the book is that it is a light yet entertaining read. It is a classic example of children’s book as it doesn’t endorse bloody events and killing spree. The team worked as surreptitiously as it could, causing no bloodshed in any side. Such stories are fuelled by detective skills and intel, and for that we have had Mr Quinn. The author holds credible knowledge about Paris’ cuisines and ambience and climate – it was all evident from the story. Overall, a lovely book by such a young author – her flair for writing books is amazing. Despite being such a young talent, her characterization is well developed and sounded like a movie plot. Highly recommended! People can buy it from Bribooks and Amazon.
