really liked it
bookshelves: mystery, young-adult

I remember this book fondly from my childhood, but my recent reading gave me a sense of just how little I must have understood back then. Raskin has a humorous style and her characters are archetypal; a young reader typically does not have the life experience to pick up on these nuances - at least I didn't. An advanced fifth grade reader could really enjoy this book, but I would just as soon recommend it for a high school student.
