Blue Schwartz's best friend, Yvonne, know Blue couldn't have taken the necklace. But the man whose kids Blue babysits for thinks she did take it--and he's ready to call the police! Blue doesn't have a clue about who took the necklace. It's Egyptian, it's very old, it might have belonged to Queen Nefertiti--and it's priceless. She's got to find it--and fast. And what's more, Blue's big school project is dues in a couple of days and she hasn't a single idea about that. What she does have a clue about is cooking, even while she's frantically trying to find the necklace. Included are some of Blue's best recipes that kids can make in no time--Oatmeal Cookies for People who Don't Like Raisins, Nutty Popcorn Balls--and more. That leaves plenty of time to solve mysteries, like who took Nefertiti's necklace. For 10 and up.
