I have really enjoyed The mystery of the Missing Money. We find the children, Joe and his two sisters, Sarah and Amy, in addition to Will, their new friend, hot on the search of some stolen money. But it has been so long ago, how could they find it when no one before them did?
I like this story because it is set in the 50's. No silly gadgets, the children have to rely on their wits alone. It figures the obligatory old ruins, the sea, the secret passage and the enigmatic figures seen through binoculars.
As much as I enjoyed the story, I deplore it was a short story. I wanted to give it 4.5 stars for this. It finished at about 70% (on my Kindle) of the story and the rest was the begining chapters of The Mystery of Smugglers Cove, which I have to say, is excellent (we read it first).
But you should not be disappointed if you buy it. It is for smaller children, maybe up to 10. Good English, no slang. I would recommend to read The Mystery of Smugglers Cove first, although not necessary but it does introduce the children and why they are living at Smugglers Cove.

These short stories, (currently there are nine), are set in 1950's Britain, and many editorial reviews and descriptions compare them favorably to the Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew and Enid Blyton's Famous Five series. The comparison to the work of Enid Blyton is particularly apt. The stories vary a little bit in their age appeal, with some stories feeling a bit more advanced in terms of plot, dialogue, and characterization than others. To me, the stories seem to fit in between Blyton's early reader Secret Seven tales and her slightly older Famous Five. They are much younger than classic era Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew.

I think the Moxham full length books, (there are currently seven), that feature these same characters are more rewarding than the short stories, which shouldn't be surprising. In the books you have more characters, more red herrings, more adventures and just a bigger canvas. For older readers, or for kids who have read all of the stories, I'd be on the lookout for those books. (For what it's worth, I'd try to read the first book, "Mystery of Smuggler Cove", first. It sets up the locale, the four kids, and the supporting characters. After that you can pretty much mix up the books and stories and read them out of order without missing the thread.)

The short stories are nice little snacks, and are great as an introduction to old-school mystery/action/adventure. The kids are just sketched in because you are familiar with them. There are fewer scenes, a little less suspense, and the wrap ups are a bit more pat. But, that's the nature of the short story and it shouldn't dissuade one from scooping them up to read as fun quickies.

Consider this story.

I liked how this book is set out and the theme because you don't get this sort of structure of a book that much these days. Most books these days are like journals about star wars and wars(ww 1, ww 2)

A not too taxing children's book in the vein of Enid Blyton. It was a bit short and could have been rounded out more and the story extended with additional information on the children, the villains, and even the geography/scenery!

This is an absolutely brilliant short story, perfect for those who just love a bit of adventure (like me!) The author has managed to fit so much drama and suspense in one short book, and it definitely hooked me in right from the very beginning. An absolute must for both boys and girls, this story tells the exciting tale of Joe, Sarah, Amy Mitchell and their friend Will. I recommend it for 8 to 12-year-olds, and I also recommend reading The Mystery of Smuggler's Cove, another great book.
