Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Edward G. Garrison, also known as "Egg," is going to the River City Zoo for a science club field trip to see the new exhibit of rare and endangered Island foxes. His friends Gum, Sam and Cat are also members of the science club, so they are going, too. Joining the foursome is the newest club member, Anton Gutman, their arch nemesis. Once at the zoo, the science club members find out that the foxes have been stolen. Egg and his friends try to figure out who took the foxes. Could it be their new science club advisor, who had an empty cage in her van? Or, is it Anton who disappeared for a time during the trip? Maybe it was the animal rights protesters? Find out if Egg and his friends solve the case of the missing Island foxes in this adventure from the "Field Trip Mysteries" series. The FactHound website mentioned in the back matter is a portal that links to sites where readers can explore and learn more about two different topics, investigations and Island foxes.

Gr 2–5—In The Painting That Wasn't There, a class visits a temporary art exhibit. The students have learned about illegal copies of masterpieces, so when a celebrated painting is determined to be a forgery, James Shoo and his friends set out to solve the crime. In The Zoo with the Empty Cage, EGG (Edward G. Garrison) is a down-to-earth boy whose science club has an outing to a zoo. The endangered animal that the kids are most looking forward to seeing suddenly disappears. The book becomes a real page-turner as the students look for suspects that even include their teacher. The occasional colorful, full-page illustrations in these engaging mysteries are inviting. These books are appropriate for reluctant readers as well as those just beginning chapter books. Concluding pages offer springboards for teachers to encourage their students to write mysteries as well as to learn investigation techniques. Good purchases for libraries that need mysteries with contemporary settings.—Elaine Charnow, Deasy/Landing Elementary Schools, Glen Cove, NY
