    kid detectives solve the mystery all by them selves.It shows you that kids can do the same things as adults.

  6. obates says:

    I love this book. I especially like how the kids managed to solve the mystery WITHOUT ANY HELP FROM ADULTS!!!!
    It’s a really a good book for reading for reading with a torch under the bed covers because it makes you a detective yourself, keeping everything secret. You can also be a detective for your parents when they discover The Mystery Of Why The Torch Doesn’t Work This Morning.

    This book is a great intense mystery were you just cant put the book down. It is filled with kids grouping together and defeating the big bad grownups who steal.

    I liked this book because it’s very funny at times. Good book to read if you’re a fan of the famous five.

    I can’t remember much about this book but I really enjoyed reading it as well as watching the play and found it rather gripping.

  12. Mr Milne says:

    A great adventure, with wonderful camaraderie among the children (the ‘detectives’), gently poking fun at adults and officials along the way.

    I Loved reading this book. It was set out perfectly and I started reading “Emil and the 3 twins” ( 4 star (not as good)) Although I may have spotted a spelling mistake or two in my edition!
