Overview

This pony knows quite a few tricks!

A new petting zoo has opened in River Heights. Nancy, George, and Bess can't wait to check it out -- the zoo has the cutest shetland pony named Buttons. And it looks like the Clue Crew won't have to wait very long to get a glimpse of Buttons -- he keeps escaping from his pen and showing up all over town! He's getting pretty famous for eating the flowers in everyone's front lawns. As much as Nancy secretly wishes Buttons would turn up on her lawn, she knows it's important to make sure he stays put. The only trouble is, no one knows how he's getting out. Sounds like it's time for the Clue Crew to saddle up and settle this pony problem!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Shana Warhola
Nancy Drew and her friends are out to solve yet another mystery. Every night, Buttons the pony escapes from the town's new petting zoo and the clue crew quickly jumps on the case to figure out how Buttons is getting out. Throughout their investigation, they question many people, which helps them compile a suspect list to get to the bottom of the mystery. Eventually Nancy pieces together all of the clues she has gathered and tells the farmer how Buttons is escaping. The answer to the mystery surprises all, but with a little creative thinking, the group figures out how to keep Buttons in the petting zoo so that the children in the town can come visit the zoo and take a ride on this amazing pony. Throughout this book, Keene enhances the mystery by encouraging readers to use literary skills such as prediction and inference without readers even knowing that is what they are doing. These elements of mystery combined with the easy-to-follow plot and the suspense keep the readers' attention throughout the entire book. Keene also includes a few black-and-white illustrations throughout the text, which helps the reader to meet the characters and develop a more intimate understanding of them. Reviewer: Shana Warhola
