Me and my brother both read and enjoyed this book. The mystery made it hard for me to put down and the ending was very satisfying. I liked the two main characters and how they were portrayed in the book, I also liked the plotline and setting. Overall I have nothing bad to say about the book and I’m looking forward to my little sister reading it.
I loved this old fashioned story because it took me back in time to the way people talked in the early 1900s in a charming beach setting. It reminded me of the Nancy Drew mysteries.
A fun mystery, without anything that was scary for my boys 6-10. It had just enough suspense to keep them begging for more. They were sad when it was over and wanted me to read it again!
My 10 and 12 yos really enjoyed this wholesome mystery. I enjoyed it as well and read it in one sitting because I had to figure out the mystery! I love that it was suspenseful without being scary and that the characters are likable with high moral character.
We loved this book! It was suspenseful but not scary, and the characters were so likable. It was a page turner for sure!
“My gracious!” breathed Phyllis. “Did you ever see anything so strange! What can it be?”
“And isn’t it beautiful!” added Leslie. “What can that queer creature be that’s carved on it? Looks to me like the pictures of dragons that we used to have in storybooks.”
“Let’s try now to get it open.”
