5.0 out of 5 stars Maisie Hitchins: The Case of the Stolen Sixpence, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Case of the Stolen Sixpence (Maisie Hitchins) (Paperback)
Maisie Hitchins lives with her Gran in a lodging house in Victorian London. She longs to be a detective and looks up to the famous sleuth Gilbert Carrington and his faithful assistant Major Edward Lamb, longing to emulate their deeds. In this first book in the series, Maisie finds a little puppy, Eddie, who has been thrown into the canal. Taking him home, Maisie tries to hide her new pet and discover what kind of person tried to drown the little puppy. When Eddie snatches some sausages from the butcher's boy, George, she is grateful for his kindness - so when she learns that he has been sacked for stealing, she is sure he is innocent and sets out to clear his name. That gives her two mysteries to solve, so both puppy and mistress are happy.

This is the first in a series of books about Maisie and introduces a lot of fun characters. There is Maisie's friend, Alice, who visits one of the lodgers for French lessons, the wonderfully eccentric Professor Tobin and all the other characters who inhabit both the lodging house and the butcher's shop where George worked. Maisie is an excellent detective, who is full of adventure and always tries her best to make things right. I bought this for my seven year old daughter and it is ideal for independent readers, who are ready to read slightly longer chapter books - probably best for the 7 - 9 age group. The next book in the series is Maisie Hitchins and the Case of the Vanishing Emerald.
