What did you like about the book? In this third adventure of the Mystery Squad consisting of Laurie, Kennedy Nabster and Colin the hamster, the group must find out who is taking money from the donation container. All are very interested in the present exhibition of robots, learning how they work and experimenting a little themselves. Another item on display is a golden coin encased in a metal claw that is worth a million pounds! The crew place a camera on one of the robots and watch as the gold coin is stolen! Lots of illustrations and activities like How to Build Your Own Robot make this a fun enjoyable addition to the series.

Anything you did not like about this book? No.

To whom would you recommend this book? I would recommend this to kids in grades 2-4 who like mysteries like Nate the Great and Encyclopedia Brown- and also those who read the first two books in this series.

Who should buy this book? Public and elementary school libraries especially those that have the first two books in the series.

Where would you shelve it? Juvenile fiction

Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No.
