Editorial Reviews

Review

"White Hours siblings Cammie and Tess (their mother is president) return to solve another case in the latest installment of the First Kids Mystery series, and this time it involves Judy Garland's ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz...a topic that will interest young readers, and this, along with endearing characters-both kid and canine-will keep pages turning."

(Booklist)

"This i s a fast-paced and fun mystery."

(School Library Journal) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
What a delightful book! It's exactly the kind of kids' mystery book that made me fall in love with mysteries when I was a child. I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to read it!

The First Kids series follows Cammie and Tess, the young daughters of POTUS Marilee Parks. Along with their Aunt Jen, their cousin Nate, their grandmother and their dog, Hooligan, the girls find themselves solving one mystery after another, all while living in the White House and being followed around by the Secret Service.

In The Case of the Ruby Slippers the girls have ordered the ruby red slippers from the movie The Wizard of Oz for their aunt's birthday. But when the shoes are missing--and then quickly found--the girls feel an investigation is in order.

This book makes me wish I taught fourth grade instead of preschool so I could read it aloud to a class!
