KIRKUS REVIEW

More of a game than a story, the simple mystery follows Jed, Bill and Liza Roberts as they track down the clues to a collection of Indian artifacts Great-great-grandfather hid away just before he went off to the Civil War. He had been killed, and the first clue had been inadvertently destroyed, but the three children manage by chance to discover the second one. The book is very easy to read, and although it doesn't have the humor and energy of the author's Amelia Bedelia books, children will enjoy playing along with the word puzzles which the clues introduce and find it a pleasant first story of detection.
