Easy to read with lots of pictures. Will have big appeal to sporting girls who might not be familiar with her story.

" If you liked "Three Times Lucky," you'll be happy to know that this has the same wit, charm, and quirky characters as before. The mystery was not quite as straightforward as the first, and I was kept guessing as to whether there would be a Scooby-... " Read more of this review »

Having read 3 of Sedgwick's last 4 books, I can certainly say that there is no author who does something totally different every time he writes quite like he does. This is a perfectly interesting mystery for teens, with the story unfolding slowly and...more

The writing was good but this book was just not my cup of tea. It is certainly well-researched, but I felt the "facts" getting in the way of the story. I found Luc to be a too smart, noble orphan, the Prof to be unnecessarily murky, the animals to be...more
