  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 May #1
    It can be fun to get lost in a long and winding mystery, but sometimes a quicker case is just the ticket. Grabenstein, known for his Mr. Lemoncello's Library series, has gathered 20 short stories for young readers to puzzle over in this new anthology released in conjunction with Mystery Writers of America. The first entry gets things off to a silly start with a question of who tracked a 20-foot-high "FART" in the snow outside of a school, and others go on to tackle a variety of entertaining subjects, from the usual missing items to a potentially haunted typewriter spitting out encrypted messages. The puzzles range in difficulty and approach, but there are lengthy solutions and satisfying resolutions tucked away in the back of the book, so no reader will be left frustrated. The short-story format makes it easy to dip in and out as the mood strikes, and young mystery afficionados will relish the opportunity to put their sleuthing skills to the test. Grades 4-7.
