Gr 2-5 Meg Mackintosh is determined to find the thief of a purloined treasure map that mysteriously disappears during a whale watch voyage. Of course, Meg solves the crime and also manages to lo cate the lost treasure. Along the way, pas sengers and readers gain a good deal of whale information. As in Meg MacKin tosh and the Case of the Babe Ruth Base ball (Atlantic, 1986), readers are encour aged to join the detective work through the clue-filled black-and-white sketches and a series of questions. The participa tory nature groups this with Donald So bol's Encyclopedia Brown series and Da vid Adler's mysteries. The format of this book (brief text, large print, numerous il lustrations) suggests a younger audience than Sobol's or Adler's fans, but the vo cabulary and some concepts may be lost on second or third graders. Plot and char acterization are slighter than in the first book, making this an additional purchase; however, libraries in which the first title is popular will want to consider adding Meg's latest adventure.
