Smashie McPerter and the Mystery of Room 11

We rated this book:


There’s something wrong with the title of the book. Let’s see if you can figure it out. (The answer is at the end of the review.) Room 11 is in an elementary school. Smashie is a kid in Room 11. (Her outfits are crazy. That’s what makes them so cool.) The room has a substitute teacher, Mr. Carper, on the day their hamster disappears, the math teacher’s kangaroo brooch disappears, and someone is gluing things to people. Mr. Carper doesn’t want to find Patches, the hamster. Smashie wants to find Patches. The class thinks Smashie got rid of Patches, because she doesn’t like his feet. (I don’t think hamsters have creepy feet. Do you? Smashie does.) Will Smashie and her friend Dontel solve the mysteries? Read the book to find out. My favorite character is Patches. I like the funny names Mr. Carper calls the kids like “Boy with the Elbows.” The pictures are good. The mysteries were good. The punishments at the end of the book were fair. My favorite new investigator language is “stolen goods.” Did you figure out what’s wrong with the title? It says “Mystery of Room 11.” It should say “Mysteries of Room 11.”
