Maisy Sawyer is not your average fourth grade student. She is a detective with a special skill for solving mysteries. In the first story in the series, Maisy tries to solve the case when her school's mascots go missing. The thief contacts Maisy and steals from her as well. Can Maisy catch the thief and return the mice to their home in the science lab?

Maisy and the Missing Mice was a fun mystery for the younger set. I have to say, I enjoyed it as well. The story was well written and it was fun to guess 'whodunit'. I thought the narrator did a nice job.
fun, quirky, and old-fashioned
I love the way this book is old-fashioned and clean, yet still appeals to modern kids. It is obvious that the author knows and enjoys many fourth graders on a regular basis. The mystery was intriguing even to me, and I found myself thinking and trying to solve the mystery before Maisy did! My favorite thing about the book was that while Maisy is on a case, she sees the world in black and white like in old detective movies. I just love that!
This is our first, but we would definitely buy another of hers!
A few parts made us laugh out loud.
The story flowed smoothly, not boring parts, and the narration was perfect!
Maisy was my favorite character. I loved how she was determined to find out who the thief was and didn't give up.
I'm very picky when it comes to narrators. Most of the time they get on my nerves, especially when doing both male and female voices, but Reba nailed it.
It was only an hour long, so I did listen it in one sitting. If it had been longer, I still would have done my best to listen to it until the end because I loved everything about it.
I would recommend it to elementary aged children that like mystery books
This was my first time listening to Reba but the narrator does an awesome job of sounding like a 4th grader
