Everyone's favorite fourth-grade detective is back!
Maisy steps back into her black-and-white mystery world when someone begins stealing lunch money at West Valley Elementary. With her fedora hat, her notebook, and a little help from her best friend, Maisy follows the clues to catch the thief. But as the case develops, Maisy is stumped by the ever-growing list of suspects. With a cherry lollipop in hand, Maisy is determined to solve the case. Follow Maisy into her world of mystery, and discover the identity of the Money Marauder.
Maisy is back with another mystery happening in the school. She dives back into her detective mode when lunch money is being taken from students. Along with her best friend, she needs to figure out who the culprit is and get her cherry lollipop reward.
Once again, Maisy makes for a great heroine. She is smart, brave and above a else, really fair and kind. This mystery in particular will pull on the heart strings. The reason behind the theft becomes apparent but Maisy treats the culprit kindly though doesn't let them get away with it.
My son enjoyed this but not as much as the first. He said it didn't have the same clues or mystery that the first had. I thought the same myself. This just didn't have the same feel as book 1. It wasn't as exciting nor as engrossing. Saying that though, it was still a really great read for him and he is excited about seeing what else Maisy gets up to. It's a fun and interesting series and one all kids will enjoy.
Reba Buhr once again, sounded a little too high pitched and forced for the performance. I would of liked her to be a little more natural.
