    Meg Macintosh and the Case of the Babe Ruth Baseball-Lucinda Landon

    In "Meg Macintosh and the Case of the Babe Ruth Baseball," Meg is looking through Gramps' old family photos when she finds a note written by George's(Gramps') cousin Alice. When she and "Georgie Porgie" were kids, Alice stole Gramps' precious baseball, signed by the Babe Ruth himself! Luckily, Alice left plenty of clues and riddles for Gramps to find-and Meg is on the right trail for finding them! Only problem is, Peter
    (Meg's annoying older brother) wants to find the baseball first. Can Meg track down the clues? And can she do it before Peter?
    I loved reading this book because it is a "solve it yourself" mystery book. At the end of almost every page, there is a question in all caps, and you have to answer it. If you can't answer it, the answer is on the next page somewhere. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as l did!

    Great for young girls

    I purchased five of these books by Lucinda Landon for my grand-daughter and she really enjoyed them. She is six years old and an avid reader. She liked the idea of being involved in solving the mystery.
