Jeanmarie, with Love

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The young orphan heroine, Jeanmarie, an on-the-mend appendectomy patient of New York City's Bellevue Hospital, is privileged, along with other orphans from the Apple Valley Orphanage, to see a circus performance. This is her dream come true, but the dream quickly turns into a living nightmare when the biggest, yet materially faulty, circus tent catches fire, causing panic and pandemonium among its 12,000 plus occupants. And when the smoke clears, literally, the story begins. Was the fire intentionally set? Who took the jewelry belonging to Princess, the lion tamer? For a curious sleuth like Jeanmarie, the intrigue and suspicions cannot be ignored. So, accompanied by her faithful orphanage companions, Pearl and Wilfred, Jeanmarie's detective "trail" leads readers through Bellevue's old secret passageways, abandoned tunnels, and along dark, cobwebbed hallways. With eighteen interesting chapter titles, 130-some pages and a cover illustration, the story oozes age-appropriate mystery components, balanced with 3-D story characters who have compassion for one another. Part of the "Apple Valley Mysteries" series. 2001, Baker Book House, $5.99. Ages 9 up. Reviewer: Patricia Timbrook
