A Quickie Review

I've read both the original and Nancy Drew Files series, but this is my first experience with the Clue Crew books. While cute and funny, it isn't quite Nancy Drew as I've come to expect her. Still, I could get used to this incarnation of the girl detective...maybe.

Score: 3/5

Nancy and her friends build a snowman, only to have it disappear! Deirdre, one of their friends, dresses up as Madame Chocolata and reads fortunes in the marshmallows floating in hot chocolate -- and some of her predictions come true! And was that Bigfoot they saw running across the street? Nancy and her friends have their hands full with these and few more puzzles to solve in this creative winter chapter book for ages 7-9.

I read this with my girls, ages 8 and 6, and they really enjoyed it. In fact, at the end of every chapter they begged me to keep reading. The plot kept them engaged and the clues were the right degree of challenging for them. I loved how clean and innocent it was. The girls asked me to get more of these books and I am happy to oblige.

Another innocent fun read. My five-year-old daughter solved some aspects of the mystery, which made her feel like one of Nancy's Clue Crew. I love that the characters - main and supporting - good and bad - are cool without being cruel. We will continue to make our way through the series.

It's probably as good an introduction to the mystery genre for early-grade kids as most things being published nowadays. It's not interesting at all for an adult, though, and it only vaguely resembles the world of the "classic" Nancy Drew books.

We are really enjoying this Nancy Drew series for younger children. The stories are fun and the age group is perfect for our girls. This is a silly mystery, but it makes us want to play in the snow and have hot chocolate...with marshmallows!

This was one of my students's favorite books from the series. We are moving on to a new series but many of them are still reading Nancy Drew on their own. :)

HEY! Were is the SHERLOCK! I like that Deirdre thinks she can read marshmallows. I also like that they didn't give up. I wouldn't do it or I could get in trouble.

I was trying to help my niece find the most intriguing series to read but I have ended up enjoying this younger kids version of Nancy Drew. Will try to read a bunch and then pass on to my niece.
