Editorial Reviews

Review

This is my kind of book! . . . Lots of twists and turns--and chilling suspense. (R.L. Stine, author of Goosebumps, on GIRL'S BEST FRIEND)

Well-crafted. . . . When this dog walker turned detective returns, she'll be welcome. (The Horn Book on GIRL'S BEST FRIEND)

Maggie is a friendly and thoughtful narrator with a sharply logical mind; readers . . . will appreciate her intellect and bravery, and applaud her success. (Publishers Weekly on GIRL'S BEST FRIEND)

Format: Paperback
Do you solve cases, walk dogs, and be an extra in a movie all at once? Maggie Brooklyn does. Maggie Brooklyn is a dog walker/ detective/ Seth Ryanoholic. She is getting to be in a Seth Ryan movie and has a huge case with the dogs! Then all of a sudden the dogs getting egged everyday in the same spot! Then one night at the Pizza Den, Seth wants to see Maggie! Out of all the people on set. Then a couple days later, Seth disappears! They all think he has been kidnapped! With all of this to do, will Maggie find out who was egging the dogs and who kidnapped Seth Ryan? Or was it something else that happened?

I like this book because Vanishing Acts is a mystery book and I love mystery books. I got this in fourth grade and I have loved it ever since. The author did a great job of leaving small hints about who did it. The author does a great job of describing how the characters look and act. The author helps me relate to the characters more when she describes them. I know the character traits really well because the author described them so well. It has twist ending. You would have never guessed the ending before you read it. The author leaves subtle hints on to who egged the dogs and kidnapped Seth Ryan. This is my favorite book and Leslie Margolis writes a lot of other great books too. But I hope you read this book!

My granddaughter (8 yrs old) loved this mystery - she's reading it a second time! It reminds her of Harry Potter, and she has read all those books.

Sent as a gift to my husband's granddaughter. She is a young beginner at chapter books, and a lively child. She reports she really liked the two Maggie Brooklyn mysteries we sent her. It is difficult to choose gifts for grandchildren who live far away, and whom we see so seldom, but this one hit the right note, and probably will lead to the family purchase of others in the series.
