Horn Book Guide Reviews 2014 Spring

When a mysterious yellow rope appears in the neighborhood, one end tied around the chimney on Dino's house, the other end sitting on his front lawn, Ivy and Bean investigate whodunit? For those readers dissatisfied with an open ending, adults might nudge them toward the likely culprit. It's no mystery, though, why these cleverly entertaining early chapter books continue to please.

Horn Book Magazine Reviews 2013 #6

After watching a black-and-white movie featuring a tough-talking private investigator, Bean decides to solve some mysteries. She and Ivy start with "The Mystery of What's Under the Cement Rectangle" in everyone's front yard (slime and a machine with a dial), then move on to why the mailman always naps in his truck (his baby cries all night long), and, finally, what the Tengs have behind their tall fence (a garden). The other kids on Pancake Court become less impressed with each case, but just in the nick of time a mysterious yellow rope appears, one end tied around the chimney on Dino's house, the other end sitting on his front lawn. Whodunit? No one knows, and on the following nights, someone adds more rope and drapes it further around the street. The intrepid girls are ultimately unable to solve the case but decide they like having a mystery in their midst. Ivy and Bean enjoy imagining that an alien (or a gnome or a rabbit) is behind the rope tricks, as will many young readers. For those kids dissatisfied with the open ending, adults might nudge them toward the likely culprit—Jake the teenager, whose large shopping bag and slight smile as he walks past Bean's front-lawn "office" are more than a little mysterious. It's no mystery, though, why these early chapter books continue to please: cleverly entertaining stories, and illustrations to match. jennifer m. brabande Copyright 2013 Horn Book Magazine.
