Dive into Maisy’s world of mystery and lollipops!
Maisy Sawyer is not your average fourth grade student. She is a detective with a special skill for solving mysteries. She loves black and white mystery movies, cherry lollipops, and her dog, Reesie. When a thief known as The Black Boot steals the school’s mascots and her lollipops, Maisy sets out to solve the case. Can she help return the mice to their home in the science lab? Will she ever see her beloved lollipops again? Find out in the first book in The Maisy Files series.
This is such a fun book. Even though it’s a book for children, I think it’s perfect for adults who want a quick fun read. I loved it.
The story starts off interesting and stays that way till the end. It even has some laugh out loud moments. Maisey is such a great character. She’s smart, has good intuition and is a great detective. I was wondering how she’d ever find out who stole the mice and her lollipops since there were so little clues, but being the awesome detective she is, she did figure it out. I also liked the other characters. They were all cute as could be. I love that Maisey thought her 11 pound dog Reesie was a fierce protector.
I listened to this on my iPod and Reba Buhr was the narrater. She did a wonderful job. She gave each character their own specific voice and it was a pleasure to listen to. And that’s saying a lot from me because I’m hard to please when it comes to narration.
I would recommend this book, and especially the audio version, to anyone young or old(er). I can’t wait for volumn 2 of The Maisy Files!
