Here's what readers are saying about The Case of the Missing Sock:
"What I especially like about the Case of the Missing Sock is how these youngsters go about finding solutions through their great deductions and reasoning skills. Children will get involved with reading this book on any level and will have fun figuring out the paper clues. Of course if you get stumped, Renee easily provides answers to the cryptograms at the back of the book... but wait, no peeking. You'll discover and solve the clues right along with Max and Mia throughout these wonderful children's mystery series. My rating is 5+ stars. I loved this book."
"What could be better than a great story mixed with fun puzzle clues to solve throughout?! That is exactly what you get with The Case of the Missing Sock. This is the first in a new series titled The Crypto-Capers in which a brother, sister, grandma and good friend team up to solve seemingly unsolvable crimes. Sister Mia is a whiz at solving puzzles, brother Max is incomparable when it comes to matters of reason and deduction, good friend Morris is a computer whiz and hard to miss Granny is in a field all her own. Together they are unstoppable and there is no crime that they cannot solve."
"As a teacher I am always in search of books that will keep my students captivated. Even though I do not teach science, after reading Renee Hand's book The Adventures of Joe-Joe Nut and Biscuit Bill Case # 2: Mineral Mischief, I am certain this fun book can be used as a resource to get second and third graders interested in science."
"Award-Winning Author, Renee Hand does it again in this delightful new Children's Detective Series. The Adventures of Joe-Joe Nut & Biscuit Bill Case #2: Mineral Mischief, is a must have for kids of all ages! kids will not only enjoy reading this great mystery but they will learn information about rocks, minerals, and even science experiments that are added in the back of the book. This book makes learning fun!!" HK Gilbert
