I am in love. Maisy and The Missing Mice is genuinely a stunning children’s book that I adore. As a mother who is keen on reading books before my children do, I am always checking for inspiring characters and a lovely, entertaining story in children books for my children to read and I am so happy to write that Maisy and The Missing Mice is just this! In my first sentence of my review, I wrote I am in love, and I am, I am madly in love with this book because it holds everything brilliant about children’s literature. Never before have I read a children’s book that as soon as I finished it, I wanted my children to read it asap! Usually, I put it down and wait but with this book I was excited for them to read it as soon as possible! That is why Maisy and The Missing Mice truly is an exceptional children’s book and with an average of four and half stars on Amazon, I am not surprised! Also, there really is no excuse for you to read this exceptional book as Maisy and The Missing Mice is free on Amazon and what is more exciting, is that this is book one in a three-part series so when you get addicted to book one (which you will!) you will have two more wonderful books to enjoy!

Maisy and The Missing Mice follows the adorable protagonist of the story, Maisy Sawyer. Maisy is not your average fourth grader as she is less interested in playing but rather solving mysteries! Yes, she is a young Nancy Drew with a talent for solving the unsolvable crimes, she is the perfect little detective and when her school’s mascots go missing, she has a new case on her hands!

Maisy must investigate the peculiar mystery of the missing mascots, what is worse is that the thief, also steals from Maisy! Maisy you see does not work for money, but cherry lollipops, she has a love of lollipops so when the thief steals them she is less than impressed and soon she fully investigates the peculiar mystery to catch the thief. Will she be able to do this and catch the thief in time? Read this excellent book to find out!

Elizabeth Woodrum… where do I start? The exceptional author of this lovely story is incredible and I admire her for her wonderfully crafted story. The characterization courtesy of Woodrum is exceptional and her creation of Maisy Sawyer, in particular, is wonderful. I adored Maisy, she is an adorable girl who my daughter now said she aspires to be; it really touched me when my daughter said this because it is lovely for her to read a book that features a strong female lead that is inspiring. The character of Maisy will show little girls all over that you can be anything you want to be, you can be a detective, you can be a scientist, you can do anything and that is really beautiful to me.

Woodrum is not only brilliant at creating characters but also weaving beautiful themes throughout her book. I adored Woodrum’s themes of doing the right thing and never giving up even when you are faced with challenges. These are incredibly themes that need to be learned by all children and so I adore how Woodrum incorporated this into her story. She shows children that it is good to investigate something if you think it is wrong, or at least inform somebody. Woodrum truly is a talented author and so I am in awe of her!

As I am a huge lover of this book, I have no choice but to award Maisy and The Missing Mice a stellar Five Stars! This beautiful, fast-paced, mystery filled story will have your children smiling the whole way though, it will take them on an excellent journey to solve a mystery and so it should not be missed by anybody!

Thanks so much for your review! I’m glad you and your daughter enjoyed Maisy and the Missing Mice! I always love to see reviews where the child’s perspective is included. I got inspired to create Maisy several years ago while I was teaching fourth grade. I’ve moved up to sixth grade now, but I think Maisy will stay a fourth grader for quite a while! Just so your readers know, the series is available in ebook, hardback, paperback, and audio book formats! Thanks again for the review I’m so glad you liked Maisy and the Missing Mice
