Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-6--Someone has ransacked the mailboxes outside the Lucky Clover trailer park and stolen Christmas cards, presents, and checks. Nellie's inquisitive nature compels her to gather clues, motives, and a list of suspects, which includes her best friend's cousin and eccentric neighbor, Chlorine LaFontayne. But who or what could have made the enormous footprints found around the bank of mailboxes? Nellie and her friends do not work in isolation: they seek adult advice, and the adult/child dialogue is healthy and respectful. There is a lot of discussion about judging people by their appearance, the harmful effects of prejudice, and the importance of telling the truth. The detectives are able to solve the mystery after a few false guesses. One strength of Wright's characters is their ability to balance each other's personalities and treat one another with respect. The writing style is clear and moderately paced. A fine choice for readers looking for a mystery that is neither too frightening nor too convoluted, and that provides a good example of young people learning from their mistakes.
