Alibis must be proved, clues must be sought but even so, blame is never far from anyone's thoughts.Who is the perpetrator of this heinous crime? Will justice be done?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, yet meaningful It's a mystery so it's got the little ones thinking. It's also a detective story with the criminal, police and law court involved. It teaches kids about living up to a family reputation, the environment, respect for other people's property, righting wrongs and even how to fold paper planes. A fun book that's worth revisiting.
