Judy is going to a camp. The school she went to had burned down so the students were going to get a long summer vacation. Irene is also going. Judy is currently 15 years old. The camp is called the 1000 island camp.

There are two plots going. One involves a counterfeiting group that was making fake $10 bills (this was 1933 so $10 meant a lot more then.)

In the other are all the things that involve the camp. Judy buys 7 wooden Indian heads at an auction and then finds out that they are suppos

I found Judy's enthusiasm for mystery at the expense of her friends feelings and respecting authority irritating. Not sure she really did much sleuthing, more jumping to conclusions. I enjoyed the other Judy Bolton's more than this one. [Spoilers coming]. And too contrived that the mystery in the Thousand Islands tied in to the mystery back in Potter County, Pennsylvania. Rather disappointing that the masks of the title were really just a red herring.

Judy and her girl friends uncover mysteries at camp. I hate to confess that I enjoyed this one less because Peter Dobbs wasn't in it much, but I like reviews to be honest and he's always been my favorite character. I also was able to solve at least some of the mystery before the end (which almost never happens), but since I'm older than the target audience, I don't consider that a valid criticism. I still enjoyed it.

This was a really cute continuation of the story, but I'm beginning to like Judy a little less. She outright said that she hated rules and anyone who tried to enforce them, which I really did not like. I also didn't like that when people are being mean to her she simply mentions all the great things she's done and instantly they are really nice to her. Judy never has to work at earning people's respect. If she did, she might respect other people more.

Didn't enjoy this one quite so much as the others. Felt it a little too contrived - (view spoiler)

This was a good book. Judy always finds herself in the middle of a mystery.
Strange masks seem to omit an ominous aura and a Cat Woman and Indian legends add suspense and mystery. Judy finds herself growing fond of Arthur but Peter is always on her mind.
