"Kate Pankhurst's series would be a great introduction to mysteries for young readers." --Library Media Connection "Sweet, solid choices for those making their first forays into chapter books." -School Library Journal" "Written in journal style this is a book that is easy to get into. Although it is the 7th book in the series it was the first one I read to my daughter. It is a book that is has a fully contained story so you won't be confused having skipped over the previous books. The characters are fun and we were both instantly hooked! A great book for kids that love a good mystery and it is a series that can even get reluctant readers excited to read." --Outnumbered 3-1, outnumbered3-1.com
