Later they go to see there snowman and realize it's gone, they thought mabey Madame chocolata's a real forturne teller, so they got worried and tried to solve the mystery before the ice show ...more
HEY! Were is the SHERLOCK! I like that Deirdre thinks she can read marshmallows. I also like that they didn't give up. I wouldn't do it or I could get in trouble.

this is a really good book and all, but I think it's for the easy reader kids not for advanced readers
This was a good beginners mystery that I read with the 8 year old in my life.
Nancy and her friends build a snowman, only to have it disappear! Deirdre, one of their friends, dresses up as Madame Chocolata and reads fortunes in the marshmallows floating in hot chocolate -- and some of her predictions come true! And was that Bigfoot they saw running across the street? Nancy and her friends have their hands full with these and few more puzzles to solve in this creative winter chapter book for ages 7-9.
It was AWESOME. Deidre is a fortune teller. Toby Leo had been listening to Deidre's fortunes and was making them come true. Like pizza and bracelets and stuff. And Bess fell on the ice. She was going to skate with famous ice skaters and she didn't even fall in the ice show. And then Nancy and George had parts too.
Another innocent fun read. My five-year-old daughter solved some aspects of the mystery, which made her feel like one of Nancy's Clue Crew. I love that the characters - main and supporting - good and bad - are cool without being cruel. We will continue to make our way through the series.

We are really enjoying this Nancy Drew series for younger children. The stories are fun and the age group is perfect for our girls. This is a silly mystery, but it makes us want to play in the snow and have hot chocolate...with marshmallows!
It's probably as good an introduction to the mystery genre for early-grade kids as most things being published nowadays. It's not interesting at all for an adult, though, and it only vaguely resembles the world of the "classic" Nancy Drew books.
This was one of my students's favorite books from the series. We are moving on to a new series but many of them are still reading Nancy Drew on their own. :)
Malcolm says, "I think it was a good book. I LOVE Nancy Drew books. I want to be Madame Pepperona and Madame Chocolata."
This book is very short!

i like it because there are just short little mysteries!
