I didn't really understand the beginning. I like books that there is excitement in the beginning so that you know you want to read this book. I stopped reading it after a chapter or two.

Wilma Tenderfoot's dream has just come true She has become the apprentice of Cooper Island's most famous detective, Theodore P. Goodman. On top of that, she has been accepted into the Cooper Academy of Detection and Espionage . As all this is going on, trouble strikes at the Vaudveville Theater. Actors and Actresses, one by one, are dying from a powerful poison. Barbu D' Anvars , from the previous book, gets involved as a red herring. Even Wilma becomes a victim while investigating this curious ...more
in this book the person who poisoned the actors was unbelievable.
This is an excellent read, but I prefered the adventures of Edgar and Ellen(Written by Charles Ogden),because it created a clearer image and it had better discription.Also when a image is created in my head by this book it's so different to what I see in the book's illustrations...>.<
This is the 2nd installment of the series and for the most part I thought it was cute and funny. The next book is coming out this summer. Fast read. Interesting characters. Very funny dog named Pickles! lol
School somehow thinks this is the kinda book we find interesting. However, the average 8-year old will love this book (and so did I secretly)
i like the part when Theodore P.Goodman saves Wilma's life.
