Stories from Chesterton
Mrs. Brown takes four of Chesterton's Father Brown Mysteries and makes them accessible to younger readers.
Father Brown, a priest, appears to be clumsy and dull witted but he solves three cases involving the famous Flambeau who eludes the top detectives. The fourth case he figures out before a famous criminologist.
All the chapters within each story are short.
The second reader by Mrs. Brown contains murder mysteries so I may wait until the boys are older to purchase it.
