Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Will have young readers flying through it to find out exactly what is going on next door."—Kirkus Reviews
Children's Literature
The Perlmans, Andy's next-door neighbors, have asked him and his friend Tamika to keep an eye on things while they are away. Andy and Tamika don't expect any trouble, but strange things start to happen. Lights turn on and off in the Perlmans' house, and garbage appears in their trashcan. The problem is, no one believes Andy and Tamika, and the police are getting annoyed. It's up to the young detectives to find out what is going on next door. In this fifth Andy Russell book, David A. Adler presents a fast-paced, light-hearted mystery that readers are sure to enjoy. 2001, Gulliver/Harcourt, $14.00. Ages 7 to 11. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green AGES: 7 8 9 10 11
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-While his neighbors the Perlmans are on a research and sightseeing vacation, Andy watches their house. Helping the young detective is Tamika Anderson, who lived with them while her parents were recovering from an accident, but is now staying with the Russells. The children find trash in their neighbors' garbage can and signs that someone is in the house. The police investigate but determine there has been no break-in. Over the next few days, the friends' suspicions are aroused again. When they see a package delivered next door, they decide to call the Perlmans' phone number. They learn that the couple is letting an artist stay in their home. As simple as that, the mystery is solved. As implausible as the plot may be, beginning chapter-book readers and fans of Andy Russell may enjoy this tidy case.-Debbie Feulner, Northwest Middle School, Greensboro, NC Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Andy's next-door neighbors, the Perlmans, ask Andy and Tamika to watch their house for them while they're in South America. Everything seems fine until one day some strange things begin to happen. Lights mysteriously turn on and off, and some odd trash shows up in the trashcan. But what kind of thief eats Oat Bran Toasties and wears purple stockings? Andy and Tamika decide to begin investigating the strange occurrences after a search by the police turns up empty-handed and Andy's parents dismiss the events as the product of overactive imaginations. In addition to dealing with the strange events next door, Andy finds himself facing some big changes in his life. His mother is set to give birth to a new baby any day and Andy's older sister has been acting oddly around him for some time. While hardly great literature, this easy mystery is enhanced with simple line drawings and has a comfort level that will have young readers flying through it to find out exactly what is going on next door.
