I was a I bit concerned that the story wouldn’t be terribly interesting and focus too much on the math at the expense of the story, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was actually quite engaging and we were both excited to find out the solution to the mystery!
I liked the diversity of the characters and the stylized drawings inside the book. I wish they used the same artist for the cover.
Quote from my daughter: “My favorite part was the math at the end. I also like just reading it because I really love books and stuff. I really want to read more in this series!”
Felix, Gertie, Stanley and Charlotte are a bright group of sixth graders who become interested in forming a detective agency. Using Felix’s tree house as a base of operations, Felix attempts to find out who is stealing his food from the kitchen by using his binoculars. When Charlotte brings a police scanner up to the house, they hear about an armed robbery at the local jewelry store. The budding detectives rush to the scene. They discover the owner Mr. Franklin has been hit on the head and his most valuable possession, the Claymore diamond, has been stolen. Police apprehend a suspect quickly, and the case appears closed. Our four young detectives believe otherwise; they refuse to quit until what had appeared obvious is revealed as erroneous.
Lots of twists and turns in the plot. The characters are believable and authentic middle grade students. Readers will find themselves enjoying the math challenges that come along with the case. Great way to get students involved with math while reading. Look forward to reading new books in the series as they are released.
What I liked about it is all the pop culture references in it. It was like revisiting my childhood. There's a lot of laughs to keep children of all ages glued to this book.
I plan to tell my students about it. That's the highest complement I can give. I'm looking forward to the second book. Start it now, and thank me later.
