Reviews

K-Gr 3 Four easy-to-read chapters follow Aunt Eater (an anteater) as she suspects mysterious happenings around her. First her bag is stolen on the train. A mysterious person at a party turns out to be the shadow of one of her friends carrying a tray and glass. The third chapter concerns a mysterious note. The final mystery involves the disappearance of her cat, Sam. While the plot in each chapter is thin, the material does not speak down to readers. A variety of sentence structures and interesting vocabulary is used. The four-color illustrations will help young readers visualize the text without giving away the mystery. Yet readers will have some unanswered questions. The explanation that one character is dressed in scarf and overcoat because he has a sore throat is unconvincing, as another character is shown in shorts and short sleeved shirt. An average but comfortable addition to easy-to-read mystery collections. Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, Iowa
