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

    Great Series!

    I got these for some of my daughter's friends and for her as gifts and they were a hit. A great way to introduce Nancy Drew to your young child. Appropriate for the age listed, easy for the 6 year olds to follow. Her only complaint is there are not enough pictures. Otherwise well done!
