Everything happens in Bandit Creek, including a children's story by Sherile Reilly.

Ten-year-old Sarah Crawford, aka Spunky, arrives in town with her mom. They rent a house which has a tenant in the basement apartment - a bitter old lady who does not approve of the way Spunky dresses or the way she practices her tap dancing in the laundry room. In fact, the old lady doesn't even like Spunky's name.

But Spunky has found a friend, Sammy Wong, and the two children like to ride their bikes along Lost Lake Road and play hide-and-seek in the big garage at the back of the property where Spunky's mother parks her car.

There's only room for the one car, because the rest of the garage is filled with junk.

And then the children discover a rope, attached to a ladder that drops from the ceiling. Who wouldn't want to investigate? They climb the ladder, go through the big square hole . . . and discover the attic, a forgotten attic, filled with stacks of magazine and carefully wrapped boxes.

This story reminds me of the Beverly Cleary "Ramona" books. I used to read them at bedtime to my children. I hope Ms. Reilly will be writing more stories about Spunky and her adventures.

The only children's story in the Bandit Creek series, Spunky introduces us to a spirited little girl, new to the town, who wants a new bike. So when she finds 'hidden treasure' she sells it. What else would a little girl do?

This is an interesting story, told from a ten year old's perspective. I have to admit, I don't read children's books or YA, but I enjoyed this one. It appealed to the whimsy of a gentler time, when there were problems, but predictable, reliable solutions to them.

I have been reading all of the Bandit Creek books and so I read this one. It was a lovely surprise.

This book creates a problem for it's young heroine that leads her through mistakes, crazy opportunities and in the end gives her a chance to act bravely and save the day. A good read for the 8 to 10 year olds in your life.

Young Sara, called Spunky by her friends, has just moved to Bandit Creek and it's not going so well. First she annoys the old neighbor lady by tap dancing in the basement washroom, then she accidently gets the woman angry even more. She is so afraid that she and her mother will be evicted because of these problems.

This is a really cute book and very appropriate for middle grades. It follows a young girl as she adapts to life without her father, who is deceased. I enjoyed the word play and the pace of the story. I give this story 4 out of 5 clouds.
