For some inexplicable reason, Malcolm was enthralled by this. We read the whole thing in one sitting. Ugh.

Malcom says, " I like clues because they're part of the mystery and I like Nancy Drew because the first time I read Nancy Drew there was kind of like a banshee kind of thing."

I was trying to help my niece find the most intriguing series to read but I have ended up enjoying this younger kids version of Nancy Drew. Will try to read a bunch and then pass on to my niece.

Author: Carolyn Keene; Illustrator: Macky Pamintuan; Age: 7-9; Chapter Book; Nancy Drew books speak to problem solving and logical thinking.

This is the 4th book of a five book series (print.) In this case, Nancy is in a ballet production of Cinderella. The story takes a turn and becomes a traditional mystery case when the infamous glass slippers disappear. In classic Nancy fashion, she is on the case. However, will she or will she not solve the case in enough time for the performance?

This is a fun book in the Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew series. Our girls really enjoy these stories and we will read more in this series before we move on to the classic Nancy Drew tales. Our youngest loves anything to do with ballet, so this one was perfect for her. She even had to demonstrate a pirouette when it was mentioned in the story!

This was a bit too gender specific for a class. The plot was a bit slow and the ending was anticlimactic. Not the best in the series, but a dedicated reader of the clue crew will still enjoy it.

It wasn't really a mystery. There was a guy in their class that did practical jokes, and he hid the ballet slippers. The clue crew helped out and found the slippers just in time.

A nice and interesting one. Gregory is always joking and see, his joking had been spread as stealing! Really nice one.
