I think this book would be an excellent unit of mystery books to a third or fourth grade classroom setting. It's fun for the children to read about the mystery, be presented with the clues, and have until the end of the book to figure it out. They'll love thinking of how they can unwind the mystery with the given clues. I would use this in my classroom by teaching the students how to constantly think outside of the box and use their creativity and imagination to figure things out on their own.
