Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Leah, Sara, and Aimee, ages seven, eight, and nine, are in desperate need of a good mystery to solve. After forming the "Criss, Cross, Applesauce Detective Agency," they receive brief assignments from Leah's newspaper-reporter father. The cases involve meeting people in their neighborhood, including a hairdresser who recently emigrated from Hungary and an animal-rescue volunteer. It is a concern that the stories center on the children meeting strangers without adult supervision. In Puppies, the friends try to help a malnourished dog but are chased away by his abusive owner. They walk away from this potentially dangerous situation, but the problem is not resolved in a satisfying manner, especially considering the fact that the author is making a point about animal rescue. Discussion questions and activities round out the books. Primitive black-and-white sketches do not enhance the content and the proofreading marks that are intentionally sprinkled throughout the text make for an awkward reading experience.-Kathleen Meulen, Blakely Elementary School, Bainbridge Island, WA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Thoroughly entertaining

    The Riddle Of The Missing Puppies from the 'Criss Cross Applesauce' series by Carole Marsh is the fun and amazing story of Leah, Sara, and Aimee in their hot pursuit of missing puppies. Following the trio of young sleuths as they make their progressive discoveries and ultimately unravel the mystery of the absent canines. The Riddle Of The Missing Puppies is a thoroughly entertaining read as Leah, Sara and Aimee find a dog named Pest and swiftly uncover everything they can to solve the case. The Riddle Of The Missing Puppies is very highly recommended for all young mystery lovers, particularly those already following the 'Criss Cross Applesauce' series. Also very highly recommended by Carole Marsh from her 'Three Amigos' series from Gallopade International is the delightful story The Riddle Of The Ooglie Booglie (0635061678, $3.99).
