Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leona Illig
Readers who are familiar with and enjoy the "Judy Moody" detective stories will welcome this latest addition to the series. Rather than a typical book with a plot, this is more of a workbook filled with all sorts of activities designed to help the budding detective hone her skills. Included in the book are a brief introduction to Judy and her friends; instructions about how to make your own detective kit and notebook; a detective's dictionary; a number of narrative mini-mysteries; and lots of riddles, puzzles, and brain teasers. All of the answers to the quizzes are given, and young readers will be able to figure out most of the problems by themselves. Some riddles, however, may require the help of an adult, thereby providing a good opportunity for interaction between children and their parents. Indeed, this book may be more fun and effective if a few children, or some children and adults, work together to solve the mysteries. Judy Moody, the heroine of this series, is a big fan of the "Nancy Drew" mysteries, and there are quite a few references to that famous female sleuth, as well as facts about the "Nancy Drew" authors and books. While this book can stand alone as a good example of an activity book, readers who have read other "Judy Moody" books will have a better appreciation of the characters, incidents, and puzzles contained in this one. Reviewer: Leona Illig

Judy Moody's Mini Mysteries and Other Sneaky Stuff for Super Sleuths 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 22 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This chapter book is aimed at readers with a lexile score of 600 and 2nd to 3rd grade. The book keeps the readers attention by causing the reader to think at a higher level. There are a lot of higher leveled questions and much logic must be applied. Readers will learn new vocabulary (alibi, culprit, witness, artifacts). Readers read to solve six cases, chapter by chapter. Adventures include missing hamburger meat, finding Romeo the missing penguin, and a missing pencil. Children will find it to be a quick read and face paced. Judy Moody is a character young elementary students can relate to; she is very inquisitive and works to get an answer. If you enjoy the Magic Tree House series, this would be an enjoyable read as well.

Judy's favorite detective is Nancy Drew, so she combined her last name with Nancy's to make Drewdy.
