KidLit Picks - Maggie Mae: Detective Extraordinairre


When Grandma's fresh baked cookies are stolen, Maggie Mae is on the case. She gathers clues and interrogates suspects. She attempts to catch the thief in the act but is foiled by her own sneeze. Still she perseveres and saves the day (or cookies as the case may be), and like all my favorite detective stories, I couldn't foresee the ending.

Maggie Mae teaches children logical thinking and deductive reasoning while thoroughly entertaining them.

A very enjoyable read!
