Grade 2-4–Lindy Blues, Your Nose for News, is a fourth-grade investigative reporter. From the headquarters of Lindy Blues Network (her house), she covers all of the news of her neighborhood on her familys old camcorder, then broadcasts it every Saturday night in her garage. This week (a slow news week), the big story concerns her neighbor Joshua Beckers seven-year-old sisters missing silver dollar. Since Lindy is surprisingly precocious and analytical for her age, she easily puts the clues together to solve the case. Full-page drawings and spot art enliven the text and help to establish the characters. This beginning chapter book often takes a funny, sardonic tone, but as a mystery, it misses the mark. The plot is clever, but the writing style is uneven. An additional purchase.–Rachael Vilmar, Atlanta Fulton Public Library, GA
