The Case of the Stolen Sculpture (Museum Mysteries)

The Case of the Stolen SculptureWritten by Steve Brezenoff, Illustrated by Lisa K. Weber


For a young (2-4 grade) mystery buff, this is a good book. It will be too simple for older readers. Clementine’s mother works at an art museum where a statue is stolen. Clementine and her 3 friends, Raining, Wilson, and Amal, set out to solve who took the statue. Brezenoff demonstrates simple deduction but doesn’t give enough clues to really solve the mystery without help. The children get away with asking grownups very personal questions and end up being smarter than the adults. Despite these problems, the teamwork between the four friends is appealing and many students will enjoy following their sleuthing adventures.
