Reviews

Praise for Under Suspicion, A Friday Barnes Mystery: "This second book in the Friday Barnes series is even funnier and quirkier than its predecessor." School Library Journal"Spratt's droll humor, often expressed through Friday's spacey friend Melanie, is the perfect complement to the offbeat mysteries Friday encounters . . . Give this to readers who like humor but also want more intelligent characters and jokes, as well as those who like quirky mysteries." Booklist"Spratt continues to hit just the right mix of dry humor and suspense. Her characterization of her protagonist shines . . . Readers know that, like Sherlock Holmes, Friday will solve every mystery; the book's fun is in seeing how she does it . . . A cliffhanger ending will have readers drumming their fingers as they wait for the next episode." Kirkus ReviewsPraise for Girl Detective, A Friday Barnes Mystery: "With off-the-wall plot turns and small mysteries scattered throughout, this is the perfect choice for mystery fans with a silly sense of humor, and the cliff-hanger ending promises more sleuthing on the horizon. Gosier's black-and-white spot illustrations add to the charming atmosphere. A sheer delight." Booklist, starred review"Spratt's (the Nanny Piggins series) effortlessly funny narration will keep readers laughing from start to finish." Publishers Weekly, starred review"Quirky, tongue-in-cheek . . . delightfully eccentric . . . A good choice for voracious readers who enjoy a blend of humor and mystery." School Library Journal"Spratt begins this new series with a nifty, engaging protagonist who can keep readers laughing and help young geeks feel good about themselves . . . Delightful, highly logical, and well-informed fun." Kirkus Reviews
