Really cute "mystery" (really a practical joke, so nothing at all scary for kids) teaching the lessons of what is most important in life. Fun to read, great for the kids.

When Dunkum spends more time with his new basketball than with his cul-de-sac friends, they try to teach his a lesson. His basketball mysteriously goes missing, and he has to solve several codes. He comes to realize that having friends and spending time with them is more important than playing basketball.

I wanted to like this book. I really did.

All I can say at last is this: If the main character is really that dumb, then maybe he deserved to lose his basketball. I felt like I just got hit over the head with a Bible lesson.

This just wasn't real enjoyable to read. Even with the codes to solve. Thankfully some of the other books in this series are better.

This was a good book. A fun "mystery" for kids to read. I liked this the most of any of the Cul de Sac kids books we have read so far.

I loved these books when I was younger (way). They're Christian based so that makes it perfect!!!
