About the Author

The illustrations reminded me of the illustrated books from my own childhood; they are beautiful and truly representative of the era.
I also liked the historical reference pages about the theater at the end of the book. It is another starting point for curious minds to follow up.
I think, this is a wonderful book for girls of any age. My daughter finished the book in one sitting and immediately went to buy more books from these series. We ended up buying children's version of "Macbeth", as well, as per my daughter's request. (Not bad for a side benefit!)
Overall, I would recommend this book to any kid 8-11 years old that likes mystery or history books, even though it has a little bit more "girl's appeal".
They DO solve the mystery (I won't tell who did it), but the thief gives up the money, keeps twenty dollars for him/herself, and leaves. That's it, done (unless you count the second to last part: Sterling freaks out by bullies who have nothing to do with the story and Kit lies to them; or the last part: Kit smiles as an actress winks in the opening scene of the play "Macbeth"...bam, over). I literally was like "Wha-a-at?" I've read good books, bad ones, medium, and outstanding: like "Wonder" and "Wildwood": life changers! Trust me. I read more than a book a day...this was quite incomplete.
This novel is a no-back-off kind of thing; it should be overlooked while on the shelf:
*Climax: no way!
*Ending: there is no end, this book never wraps up, it leaves you holding a book with the ending missing.
I think I've done so much as to prove my point, you may love this book, but I advise all the readers: don't buy this, please.
