Mystery Club (Mr. Wolf's Class #2)
1. What happened to Aziza's favorite Frisbee?
2. Is the girls' bathroom really haunted?
3. Where is Mr. Greens, the teacher who disappeared?
To answer these questions, the three friends start a mystery club! What could be more fun? Meanwhile, Abdi is wondering what happens to the balls that are accidentally kicked over the fence during recess, and thinks he'll be a hero if he can find his best friend's football.
Mysteries abound at Hazelwood Elementary!
With brightly colored illustrations of animals and funny stories, this book is sure to capture the imagination of young readers. The pages turn quickly in true comic style, with many things illustrated vs. written.
What I loved: The stories are entertaining and funny at times, which is sure to keep elementary schoolers engaged. Each section could be its own story, which allows readers to devour each section in their own time, making it great for early and/or reluctant readers. There is also great diversity in the cast with one child having two mothers, another worried about money (in terms of buying a gift for a birthday party), and another in a hijab. Although they are not people, it’s always great to see diversity in children’s books. The illustrations are also really great with a cartoony air that will appeal to the target audience.
Final verdict: If you are looking for a delightful and quick read, I highly recommend picking up this fun comic. With broad appeal to the elementary school audience, this diverse cast of students are sure to delight young readers!
