Review: The Mount Rushmore Face That Couldn't See by Steve Brezenoff


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:

MY TAKE:

There should be more books like this! :D

The Mount Rushmore Face That Couldn't See is a mystery novel for kids. The protagonists are a group of friends who like solving mysteries. Think Scooby Doo and friends or the Ghostwriters, if you remember those guys. :D

This is the kind of book and series that I would have devoured when I was a kid. The characters complement each other and they're all interesting and likable. The illustrations remind me of a mixture of a cartoon and a hidden object game.

As a mystery novel buff, it was easy for me to guess most of the mystery, although I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't get the reason right. Young mystery fans should have a ball with this book.

Thanks to NetGalley and Stone Arch Books for the e-ARC. Publication date of  The Mount Rushmore Face That Couldn't See is on August 1, 2012.

THE GOOD:

  1. The mystery is not completely predictable.
  2. The characters are interesting.
  3. It's a series!

THE BAD:

  1. It's quite short since it's meant for children.

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
Then she passed out hot dogs and veggie dogs to roast.
READ IT IF:

  1. You like mystery novels.
  2. You like Scooby Doo, Ghostwriter and other old mystery shows for kids.
  3. You're looking for a fun read that your kids or younger relatives can enjoy.
