Review

Praise for the Liza, Bill, & Jed Mystery series:

“Liza, Bill, and Jed are sleuths again. . . . Believable characters, surroundings, and situations and an action-packed plot which thickens steadily and surely to a logical solution make a book sure to win Miss Parish even more young fans.”—School Library Journal

“Young readers will be immediately involved . . . and can share the fun and excitement of unscrambling the codes and deciphering the cryptic instructions.”—The Horn Book Magazine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

Who or what is taking the kitchen scraps from the garbage every night? What starts out as a puzzle becomes a mystery. Every night Grandma leaves table scraps in a wrapped plastic bag in the garbage can where, according to plan, the McNellis children pick them up to feed their kittens. But the plan changes when the bag is gone in the morning. The twins, Liza and Bill, and brother Jed decide to investigate the matter.

First the children discover Liza's missing red sweater in a part of the woods she hadn't been to before, next they read about runaway children in the newspaper, and then their new puppy is lost. Finally they find a teepee in the woods with what seems to be Indians in warpaint dancing and shooting arrows! The young detectives must put all the clues together and solve the mystery. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I read the first book of these mysteries out loud, as a part of our first grade curriculum. My son loved them so much, I had to purchase the rest in the series. He loved this story, as well as my 14 year old. They laughed and were kept on the edge of their seats. They were so taken up with the story line, that it was hard for me to find a place to take a break. They all begged for more. It truly kept them captivated, which made it a wonderful family experience for all of us.

Format: Paperback
This is the second book in the Jed, Bill and Liza series I read as a child. I believe I got the first one in 2nd grade, and I wasn't ready for it. The next year, I saw it on my bookshelf, read it and was then hooked. This was probably purchased as the book fair. Remember those? They came to your school library and had red, blue, yellow and green fold out displays with books to buy. They were awesome. I'm going through and re-reading this series, delighting in the adventures I read over and over again as a kid. They still hold up. Maybe I'll get to introduce my nephew to them in a few years!

My 10-yr-old loved this book and has been asking for more of these series of mysteries. I haven't found them in the stores easily, but I highly recommend it.
