The Case of the Missing Deed by Ellen Schwartz is a culinary mystery written for kids. The book follows a group of cousins that have to find the deed to their grandmothers house that their dead grandfather hid somewhere so they can save it from a company that wants to take it so they can create a mine which will destroy the island.. After they look everywhere they decide to make their grandmother her favorite meal and they find a clue that leads them on a sort of treasure hunt though the recipe groups. Will they be able to save their grandmothers house and the island before it's too late?

This is a fantastic book for middle grade readers. It has the right amount of mystery and the recipes are very child friendly. While the actual components of the mystery are a bit silly and not very realistic it's perfect for the intended audience. It is a fast read that pre-teens will enjoy.

Appropriateness: There is no adult content in the novel and no violence. There is a hint of romance but nothing that would disturb even the most romance hating boys. I would recommend this book to readers 9-13 and it will appeal equally to boys and girls.
