Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Butler
KC and Marshall take a tour of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and when they discover that someone has been stealing bricks of newly printed money, they resolve to find the thief. Stacks and stacks of money zip off the presses in the Treasury's printing and engraving building, millions of dollars a day. KC and Marshall are thrilled to take the tour and see it for themselves. Then they find a bundle missing. That is a hundred thousand dollars, gone! How did the thief slip the money out past cameras, guards, and locked doors? KC has a suspect. She has a clue. Now she just needs to figure out how in the world it was done! Ron Roy knows just how much suspense to put into mysteries for young readers. His books are interesting and usually about some different themes than those that are typically used. The book is not well put together and in paperback format, so will not tolerate hard use unless it is reinforced.
