Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Milliner
Amateur photographer Edward G. Garrison (aka Egg) and friends Sam, Cat, and Gum have a tendency to find, and solve, mysteries whenever they go on a field trip. As the story opens, they join their fellow sixth graders to visit Buckaroo Caverns. After encountering a strange, new bus driver, they meet Andy, an unfriendly tour guide whose great-grandfather is the original owner of the caverns. Upon entering the cave (once rumored to contain gold), the students are warned to stay away from a closed-off section in danger of collapsing. Gum, a geology enthusiast, finds a piece of volcanic rock near that section, which indicates someone brought in rocks so it appears there is danger of collapse. With the help of his friends, his suspicion is confirmed and the culprit caught. This is one of several books in the "Field Trip Mysteries" series. The format is very reader-friendly: frequent and colorful illustrations; a "Detective's Dictionary" of terms (debris, incriminate...); and even a science report about bats. If that is not enough, there is a terrific Capstone Kids website filled with games, quizzes, and other activities. "The Field Trip Mysteries" section is strange in that it focuses on another mystery series with the same characters; however, it includes very cool "spy kit downloadables" like a fingerprint database. All in all, this series (and the website) should provide hours of enjoyment as well as information. Reviewer: Naomi Milliner

    Great book!

    This review is being written by my 7 year old son. This is another book in the Field Trip Mysteries series. I liked this book just as much as the Ghost Who Haunted the Capitol. I really liked how the characters had many suspects to choose from. They had to use the clues until there was just one suspect left. I like how smart they are. I would recommend this book.
