Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the tradition of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries comes The Mysteries of Maisie Hitchins! Twelve-year-old Maisie is a noticing sort of person. Thats why she is convinced she would make an excellent detective if she ever got the chance! But instead of detecting, she spends her days polishing the banisters at her grandmother's boarding house or fetching fish for the lodgers' dinner. In The Case of the Stolen Sixpence, Maisie's big chance to prove herself finally arrives when crime strikes her Victorian London neighborhood. While the grown-ups turn a blind eye to the whodunit and justice goes un-served, Maisie and her canine sidekick, Eddie, search the streets for clues to crack the case. This first book in a series features black and white illustrations and a rollicking mystery complete with tricks, disguises, danger, and a little dog too! and#160;

Review:

"Fancy Nancy pirouettes into middle-grade territory with the launch of a mystery series that has her emulating another famous Nancy — Nancy Drew. The stylish sleuth assumes the role with élan, dressed for the job in a pink trench coat and sunglasses, carrying a rhinestone-studded magnifying glass. Initially frustrated by the lack of cases to crack ('I wish we lived someplace like River Heights,' she complains. 'In River Heights, criminals are lurking around every corner'), Nancy springs into action when her teacher's prized blue marble goes missing. Nancy shows both her trademark flair for translating ('Ooh la la! Nancy felt all tingly just saying the word ‘motive.' It meant the reason for doing something bad') and her penchant for humorous exaggeration. As in Nancy's earlier picture books and I Can Read titles, her affectionate interactions with her younger sister, JoJo, and their parents ground the story. O'Connor and Glasser are as in synch as ever, and readers who have grown up with Fancy Nancy will be thrilled to follow her new career path. Ages 7 — 10." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
