This was my favorite mystery series when I was a kid...I'm sure it's what started me on the mystery-loving adventure in books that I've had all my life. They are just the right size for kids -- 15 chapters or so -- and she never dumbed down the language (similar to JK Rowling keeping her vocabulary up even while writing for kids), so if you're reading to your kids, it provides an opportunity to teach them vocabulary at the same time.

This has been Little Fellow's favorite of the series so far. I have to agree with him.

A good middle reader mystery. Today's middle readers might find it a little unrealistic the way the kids are allowed to run around without an adult.
