Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leona Illig
The sixth grade is going on another field trip, this time to New York City. In this story, one of the "Field Trip Mystery" series, Samantha "Sam" Archer and her friends and schoolmates visit the sites of Manhattan, including the Museum of Natural History, the Hayden Planetarium, the Bronx Zoo, and others. But at every stop a crime has been committed: an act of vandalism, usually resulting in the defacing of a tourist site. A mysterious girl who appears and vanishes, as well as one of Sam's own classmates, are suspects. It takes some serious sleuthing before Sam and her friends figure out who is responsible, and, with the help of some New York City policemen, put the bad guys behind bars. This is a well-written book, and it deals with a lightweight crime and punishment motif that should interest, without disturbing, younger readers. The layout of the book and the illustrations are first-rate; it is obvious that the artist put a lot of thought into the work. At the end of the book, readers will find a glossary of detective terms, some facts about New York City, and questions and suggestions for further research. Readers who are new to this series may have a little trouble connecting with the characters, since there is not much character development, but those who know the previous books should enjoy this one.
