Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Entertaining This was my four year old son's first chapter book and it was very appropriate. We loved the characters and following along with the mystery. We ended up reading the entire book in one sitting as he was anxious to hear the outcome. What a great book, we can't wait to read more of the series!
