Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3–6—Cat, Sam, Egg, and Gum are sixth-grade pals with a penchant for solving mysteries. Regardless of their destination, they make the most of their class trips by combining detective work with sightseeing. In Big Apple, they arrive in New York City just as a lunch box has been lifted from the Ralph Kramden statue in the Port Authority Bus Terminal. Later there is more vandalism at the Museum of Natural History and the Bronx Zoo, setting these kids on the trail of a suspicious girl who just happens to know their itinerary. In New Orleans, the friends witness acts of voodoo at every tourist attraction and wonder if certain people might be zombies in disguise. In both books, a bullying classmate initially seems to be the culprit, but when his crime appears to be no more than a weakness for ice cream, the tourists reach deeper into their detective tool boxes to unravel the clues. Each of these compact chapter books offers leading characters of both genders, some full-page, full-color illustrations, a "detective's dictionary" (aka glossary), a useful model of a school report on the featured city, and evidence-based discussion questions. These titles are excellent introductions to the mystery genre; the graphics and short chapters make them accessible to struggling or reluctant readers.—Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT
Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Strange things happen during the field trip that Catalina's class takes to New Orleans. It appears that voodoo is alive and well there. When the children and their teacher arrive they are met by a local guide who seems to have her own agenda beyond taking the class to see the sights. As she is helping them check into their hotel, a renovated paddle boat on the river, a zombie begins causing havoc in the restaurant. After the gift shop owner jumps up in pain, Cat and her friends discover a voodoo doll with pins stuck in his butt. One of their classmates cannot control his go-cart and a bad luck talisman is found taped to the bottom. Cat and her friends do not accept voodoo as the explanation for all these incidents, so they do their own investigation and discover the person responsible. Full-page illustrations and insets add color to the book without contributing any significant meaning. A fast-paced story which may appeal to emerging readers. "Field Trip Mysteries" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
