Maisy and the Money Maurauders by Elizabeth Woodrum


This is book two of this middle grade mystery series

Maisy is back! 
Lunch money has been stolen at West Valley Elementary, and everyone's favorite fourth-grade detective in on the case. 
With a cherry lollipop in hand, her fedora, and her trusty notebook, Maisy steps into her black and white mystery world to search for clues. 

Join Maisy on her quest to unmask a thief in 
Maisy and the Money Marauder.


EXCERPT:

Then, something strange began to happen to Maisy.  She was suddenly reminded of a part of
the pirate book they had been reading.  One of the characters had been marooned on an island
before the pirate ship found him.  He had walked through underground caves and discovered a
treasure chest full of gold and jewels.  The pirates on the boat eventually stole it from him.

Maisy’s black and white world briefly shifted to an entirely new scene. The hallway was no
longer just a black and white version of its usual brightly lit, blue tinted self.  The colors all
shifted to a single dull gray hue.  The tiles transformed into wet, stone slabs.  The walls were a
smooth rock that curved around the corner.  When Maisy reached the end of the hallway and
turned, she could almost swear she heard water trickling from somewhere up ahead.

She could see the door of her classroom.  But, it looked like the wide mouth of a dark cave.
 As she followed her classmates inside, she blinked and her imagination found itself settling back into her black and white detective world.

Elizabeth Woodrum has been a teacher for thirteen years. She came to love writing when she
was in elementary school, but more recently began writing material for use in her classroom.
From that writing, grew the desire to write books for the general population of children and
adults alike. The Maisy Files, a children's series, is the first series that she has published.

As a reader, Elizabeth prefers the fantasy genre, but she enjoys realistic fiction as well. Some of
her favorite authors include JK Rowling, Rick Riordan, Veronica Roth, Suzanne Collins, and
Nicholas Sparks.

Originally from Indiana, Elizabeth currently lives in Ohio with her two pets: a cat named
Butterscotch and a dog named Reese Cup.

Maisy has a fondness for truly old classic detective movies, black and white being the best. She has made a name for herself among her peers and teachers as a worthy detective herself.
She carries a Fedora and notebook in her backpack. This second book in the series begins immediately following her success solving the mice mystery. When she focuses hard on clues, her world fades to shades of grays.

This series will appeal to both boys and girls in upper elementary grades.
I enjoyed the pirate references and how effortlessly vocabulary lessons were worked into the story. There is even some painless math. The clues were fun to follow.
I am sure more mysteries will grab Maisy's attention.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
