My 8 year old son loves to read. He has read the entire series already and couldn't wait to jump into this book. He was finished with it in under 90 minutes. Not only does he love reading these books but he will stop every so often and tell me "mom, I think I know did it". He enjoys the characters even after reading all 26 of them. I love the fact that his mind is racing from beginning to end trying to figure it out.

My favorite character in this book was Ruth Rose, because she was smart and figured stuff out. I liked the part of the book when they solved the mystery. I really liked the way the author hid a letter in each picture to form a secret message.

This is a great series for girls and boys. Stories are entertaining and create conversation. Long enough but not a huge chapter book that drags on. Highly recommend for 1st graders.
