This was once again another delightful middle grade book in the Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series. Davey and Derek and their friends are delightful children who are respectful and considerate of others, but who don’t hesitate to do a bit of sleuthing under the nose of Abby’s parents.
As with the other books in this series, The Case of the Sad Mischievous Ghost is well written and meets the author's criteria for instilling the love of reading in children.
I highly recommend The Case of the Sad Mischievous Ghost to all middle graders and to their parents. This would be a wonderful book to share, with parents taking a turn reading aloud.
This book was a gift from the author. I received no compensation for my honest review.
Reviewed by children's author Deanie Humphrys-Dunne
Davey and Derek are two humble detectives who are very thoughtful of their friends and the people around them. Always helpful, they don’t hesitate to step in when their friend Abby announces that something unusual is happening in their old Victorian house. The twins immediately jump on the new case. What would an old house be without a ghost?
As in the previous books in this series, “The Case of the Sad Mischievous Ghost” meets the readers’ expectations. The young detectives face some challenges while unraveling the ghostly mystery, but with help from their mysterious Aunt Gigi and some other friends, they untangle it very professionally.
The twins are growing with her stories, and surprisingly they are that age when boys are noticing girls … and sweet friendships are developing between the twins and the pretty cousins.
The story takes thrilling turns and surprising twists. In some places it is chilling, as a ghost story should be. In other places it is romantic and sweet. A terrific new installment in the Davey and Derek Junior Detectives series!
It involves and amuses, as it takes young readers for a ride to challenge them. A valuable educational tool for children, who like light mysteries and charming adventures!
