I sent this to my 8 yr-old grandson who loves mysteries and he read the entire book in one evening. He liked it a lot and couldn't put it down. Although I didn't read the whole book before purchasing, I scanned several and chose this one because many others contained violence and guns which I didn't find appropriate for this age group.
Nate the Great and the Halloween Hunt By Marjorie Weinman Sharmat . I think this book is boring because she doesn¿t have a good story line. She says on the back of the book their trick- or- treat bags are getting heavier. Rosamond¿s bag is getting heavy because her cat was with her the whole time. I think this book is bad because it has bad storyline. It would be better if it was longer. I would not recommend this book to anybody because it is boring.
I found this book ok. I love mysteries. But it is not the best one I have ever read. I mean I knew the kitten was in her basket.
