This book was fun reading. I read many Judy Bolton books while I was in high school, I know I read all that my school library had, but I have no idea if I read all 38 of them. So far I don't remember the stories, it's like I am reading them for the first time. Maybe I am on these first books.
This is a simple mystery story aimed at young teenaged girls, ala Nancy Drew. Judy is a girl with a forceful personality and boundless curiosity, plus she's good at details, all of which serve her well in dealing with the mysteries she runs into. Her primary weakness is that she jumps to conclusions, and will ignore data that contradicts her hypotheses until someone reminds her otherwise.

The mystery itself is pretty straightforward; I guessed all the twists several pages before Judy

Reading this I was transported back almost 60 years ago to when I read all of the Judy Bolton books. I used to get one for my birthday or Christmas. I immediately remembered all of the characters (which spoiled the mystery since I knew who Honey really was.) This was all about nostalgia for me. The book still seemed better than the Nancy Drew I recently reread, but, even so, these were definitely for the younger set. Books for teens certainly have changed since I was a kid. I'm willing to read m ...more

This was one of the more detective type books. Missing items from the antic store and people who have amnesia. I read all of these as a teen and loved them then and am now rereading them as an adult. Love them now. Out of all the mystery Judy does her magical work and finds the missing items and takes in the lost girl whom they name Honey. She becomes family, but more than that she is family. Another mystery to add to the mystery of the missing store items.

Another good mystery.
Kristine Hansen
A theft, a mysterious girl with no memory, and a lot of adventure is what's waiting for Judy in this exciting adventure.

Without having read about Judy before I fell into this story without being sure what to expect. What I found was a fiercely likable girl with a good head on her shoulders, and a love for mysteries. At times she seems a little naive, but you have to take under consideration the time period in which these books are written.

I loved getting to know Judy and want very much to find

This is a delightful mystery that a "thinking" reader will probably figure out before Judy if read shortly after The Haunted Attic. In this story, the reader is introduced to a new character that is quite important to the series.

The value of belonging to a "family" is an underlying current along with the concept of nature versus nurture.

Good entry in the Judy Bolton series.
