Dive into Maisy's world of mystery and lollipops!

Maisy Sawyer is not your average fourth grade student. She is a detective with a special skill for solving mysteries. She loves black and white mystery movies, cherry lollipops, and her dog, Reesie. When a thief known as The Black Boot steals the school's mascots and her lollipops, Maisy sets out to solve the case. Can she help return the mice to their home in the science lab? Will she ever see her beloved lollipops again? Find out in the first book in The Maisy Files series.

My verdict

    Maisy and the Missing Mice turned out to be a short and sweet read. The characters are very adorable, especially Maisy herself, the fourth grader mystery solver with a fetish for cherry lollipops. She loves solving mysteries (she's very serious about it) and is good at it too. 

The story is short, the right length for elementary school readers. I believe it'll definitely be an enjoyable read for little boys and girls. 

I've always loved reading children's books from as far back as I can remember. The inner child in me always goes "Waaaaaa!" *rainbows* every time I enter the children's section in any of my frequently visited bookstores. I think I'd love to see Maisy and the Missing Mice on those shelves too. A recommended read for all brainy little creatures (read 'kids') with an early affinity for some serious mystery solving.
