A wonderful children's mystery story. Easy listening with a great vocal recording. The vocal is soothing for young children yet intriguing for children of all ages. The story has high interest, great character development and excitement for all readers and listeners. A great bedtime story. Highly recommend!
Yes. The story is a lot of fun and I just love Dani. So does my son (3) and my niece (6).
Dani P. is my favorite girl detective since Harriet the Spy. She's smart, curious and not afraid to figure things out on her own.
Follow the sleuthing detective, Dani together with her best friend, Chloe through a maze of clues before they solve the mystery of 'The Haunted House!' The lilt of Jill Cofsky's voice lifts K. Lamb's words to life from chapter to chapter, so much so that I can't wait to listen to Dani's next mystery adventure! Girls, sneak under your covers. You don't need a flashlight, just ears of imagination to be scared in the very best way!
The fire! Would they make it out alive?
Ms. Cofsky keeps the characters’ speech distinctly different and her tone is a joy to listen to. She really brings the story to life.
I enjoy the playful banter that the characters engage in and admire their trust in one another.
An exciting listen for the young readers or for the entire family that’s filled with suspenseful shenanigans.
It would have been better if I could have liked the main character. Dani is a bully right from the start of the story. While I don't think the author's intent was to make Dani a bully that's how she came across. The summary sounded interesting but rapidly started to dislike Dani.
Dani was also too similar to another little girl who likes playing detective and it would ahve been better if Dani wasn't a more aggressive and younger version.
Dani would need to be more empathetic to her friends. It would also be more interesting if this was Dani's first adventure investigating. I would have preferred a more likable main character. Dani's sidekick started out decent, willing to stand up for herself but she quickly and rapidly let Dani have her way.
She gave each character a different voice, I could hear the character's personality.
The last chapter. I can't explain why except to say that it was simply an outlet for Dani's ego, which is big enough when the story starts.
The summary lured me in. I'll give the next book a try but I'm doubtful I'll blow a credit on it.
