This story is about a boy who ends up in a nightmarish library where hidden rooms appear to be a labyrinth sorts with spooky environment. Here comes the few characters such as the sheep man, a mysterious girl and a starling pet to accommodate the required foundation for the story construction.

I like these short stories compared to big reads as this speeds up the reading challenges on the Goodreads app. 😊 The plot is about encountering a fire incident in the sacred heart school lab and how students set to find its grounds? This leads to the official start of the SMS detective agency and thus goes their investigation paths. The characters are memorable for being simple and realistic. It’s suitable for children whose interest lies in mystery or detective stories.
