Editorial Reviews

Review

"...Enjoyed sleuthing with Sam and Lita--and Dachshund Petey--so much that I can hardly wait for their next case!"
-- Gay Toltl Kinman, Agatha Award nominee, author of SUPER SLEUTH

2009 Eppie Award Finalist for Best Children's/YA ebook


"... Ms. Verstraete maintains the same level of interest and mystery that my childhood favorites contained.... A fun way to spend time reading with any child and also introduce them to new hobbies."
-- Chris Speakman, ChrisChat Reviews

"Well written, very exciting, and hard to put down, especially with the spooky old Victorian house, scary goings-on at night, and a lot of suspense." -- Independent Reviewer "Stories for Children Magazine"

Searching for a Starry Night is a refreshing read. It has Sam and Lita searching for a culprit behind a stolen miniature. All with the help of Petey, the mischievious dog whose misbehavior ends up being a help to the girls. It's neat to sneak a peek into the world of minis, the characters remind me of me and my childhood BFF, and it's just a fun read.

Searching for a Starry Night reads quick, quick, quick. It is a delightful mystery wrapped around the notions of miniatures and a dog. You won't be disappointed with the author's writing style and wry wit. Yes, it's intended as a YA book, but it has an appeal for older readers.

Who has more fun than kids on summer vacation especially when they think they're detectives. Lita and Sam sure have fun solving the mystery of a missing work of art. I wanted to take Petey home with me.
