School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- It's summer vacation and Jenny Archer is bored. A trip to the library supplies her with not only an armful of Missy Martin mysteries, but an idea toward a summer occupation as well. After all, if Missy can rid the world of dangerous criminals, why can't Jenny? In true sleuth fashion, Jenny, her friend Wilson, and Barkley, the dog, undertake an investigation that alerts the police to some local thugs trying to make off with the neighbors' furniture in a fake moving van. The crime is thwarted, thanks to Jenny Archer, a real-life junior detective. This lots-of-fun advanced easy reader contains eight chapters, all about three pages long, with large, clear print, and lots of white space. Its familiar but never dull vocabulary and simple sentence structure present an ideal next-up book for primary grade readers who've outgrown the easies. The children here are lively, the adults funny, wise, and supportive. The plot cleverly follows standard mystery story conventions, such as the faithful sidekick and the use of disguises, and neatly transfers the actions and conclusions of the fictional Missy to those of the real Jenny. A minor flaw is that the illustrations fail to capture the spirit of the adventure. Any library in need of a well-written adventure that will take readers by the hand and lead them to a place where book fantasies are allowed to come true shouldn't be without this playful mystery.-- Joanne Aswell, Long Valley Middle School, N.Y.
