My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Witty, Wise, Well Written and Wonderful!
Author Christy Allen, brings to life an intelligent, little detective in a truly enjoyable mystery starring a young, ambitious, highly intelligent, and somewhat precious 10 year old. Brilliant, funny, and curious, Sam Green along with her very appropriate and well developed family and friends solve the mystery of the random jack-o-lanterns being maliciously deposited on the librarian’s property.
Mrs Allen’s characters are incredibly interactive and well developed as is her story and plot. This is a great book for wanna-be detectives of all ages and anyone who likes to read. I read it and gave it to my ten year old who couldn’t put it down.
I highly recommend this be added to the AR reading list for all 4-6th graders.
