    Not for the squeamish animal lover

    Typical Nancy Drew book. However if you are at all squeamish, I would skip this one. The discription of what was done to the sheep to make parchment was upsetting to my 9 year old daughter. She liked the book otherwise.

    I did not like this book at all!

    I do not think this books is appropriate for children. The reason is about the crulity of the sheep. The author writes about the bleeding and the sheep being scared in a slaughter house. When Nancy or Beth or whoever speaks about the crulity the farm girls always says "you like to eat meat don't you?" Grated this was before PETA but still it is not needed. I also missed the personalities of Bess and George. They did not have any role in the story at all. The mystery was easily figured out by the middle of the book and the rest of the story just confirmed Nancy's idea. I am an old school Nancy Drew fan-reading everyone. If this was first one I ever read I would not read anymore.

    A Mystery for All Nancy Drew Lovers To Solve- Did Nancy Really Solve This Mystery?

    That's what I'm still trying to figure out. A sheepfarm owner's daughter invites Nancy and her friends out for a house party and to solve the mystery of four drawings on a piece of sheepskin, correctly called 'parchment'. The mystery is very good, and I liked the way characters and their talents were developed- but there was something lacking. I think it was because the farmer's daughter did most of the talking. When Nancy did have dialogue, she usually repeated what someone else had just said. It was really unnerving. No other book ever made Nancy so out-of-it. Even worse, Nancy's friends didn't even come into the picture until almost at the end of the book. No Nancy Drew book, no matter how good the read, just isn't perfect without Bess, George, Ned, Burt, and Dave.
