Reading detective stories to Colin has helped him slow down and take a few more minutes to look for his shoes before bellowing for mom. Osborne really knows how to speak to kids. I like the complexity of Spider Kane and his group.

Recommends it for: children starting to read longer chapter books
This is the first of two books featuring Spider Kane by Mary Pope Osborne. It's an interesting story, with lots of intrigue, danger and mysterious circumstances. It took us quite a long time to read this together, but overall we enjoyed it and we will look for Spider Kane and the Mystery at Jumbo Nightcrawler's at our local library.
