What I thought of the book
This is a cute story about a young girl who thinks she would make a good detective because she is good at noticing things. She spends most of her time working for her grandmother. One day she leans that George has lost his job at the butcher shop because he accused of stealing, but he swears he didn’t do it.
Maisie knows that he needs that job to help him mom she she sets out to find out who really stole the sixpence and use her noticing skills. She has several suspects and she goes through each one of them trying to decide if they could have stolen the money.
I can’t wait to see what case she solves next! This is great for young readers!
It’s read by Anna Bentinck and Anna does a really good job with The Case of the Stolen Sixpence and I really enjoyed the story.
