The Case of the Stolen Sixpence

July 24, 2016

This is the first in the Maisie Hitchins series.  These books take place in London a long time ago.  They are about a girl who loves to pretend she is a detective.  She wants to be like Sherlock Holmes when she grows up.  One day as she is walking home from the market she finds a puppy in a bag that has narrowly escaped from being drowned.   The puppy soon becomes her sidekick as Maisie travels through London looking for mysteries. Soon enough a mystery finds her when one of her friends is accused of stealing a Sixpence.   Maisie has to follow the clues to prove her friend is innocent.  Maisie has to not only figure out who really committed the crime but also how to prove it.  I like Maisie because she is smart and brave.  This book was a fast easy read without any difficult words.  I’ve already asked my mom to get the next one.
