JINGLE: a light clinking or tingling sounds, often heralding the approach of Santa, reindeer, or the mysterious thief of a priceless possession . . .



Griffin Bing and his friends are NOT happy. Instead of going away for winter break, they've been signed up to volunteer at a local Christmas extravaganza . . . as elves.



It's not easy being an elf. Not when Santa is bad news and Rudolph is being played by a Doberman who makes up his own rules wherever he goes.



But being an elf is nothing compared to being blamed when a prized Christmas possession -- worth over ten million dollars -- is stolen right from under your nose.



It's time for these elves to get off the shelf and track down a Christmas thief!

When Logan signs his friends up for the Christmas extravaganza (much to the others dismay), none of them anticipated what would happen. At first, Griffin and the others are annoyed at being volunteered to be elves without their permission. Then, things get worse when the Star of Prague is stolen from atop the tree and brings an end to the Christmas extravaganza-something the whole town looks forward to.

Griffin and the gang have been in trouble with the police before, so they're immediately suspected of the crime. The only problem, they didn't do it. With the town angry at them for something they didn't do, Griffin and his friends have to solve the mystery of who really stole the Star of Prague so their names can be cleared.

This was a fun mystery for those who enjoy middle-grade fiction. I absolutely love Christmas and throwing in a mystery makes the story that much more intriguing. This was my first Swindle story and I wasn't disappointed. I loved how each character brought their own skill to the group and how they all played their own role in solving the mystery. The format and addition of their notes made the reader feel like part of the story. The best part? The person who stole the star but you're going to have to read it to find out who that is.


Final Verdict: This is a great story for readers who enjoy mysteries and Christmas. It's the perfect story for this time of the year and I would even recommend it as a gift to those ages 8 and up.
