"A hilarious mix of silliness and mystery that will keep readers chuckling and turning pages . . . Another worthy addition to a must-have series for middle-grade readers." --Booklist

Under Suspicion, A Friday Barnes Mystery

"This second book in the Friday Barnes series is even funnier and quirkier than its predecessor." --School Library Journal

"Spratt continues to hit just the right mix of dry humor and suspense. Her characterization of her protagonist shines . . . Readers know that, like Sherlock Holmes, Friday will solve every mystery; the book's fun is in seeing how she does it . . . A cliffhanger ending will have readers drumming their fingers as they wait for the next episode." --Kirkus Reviews

"Spratt's droll humor, often expressed through Friday's spacey friend Melanie, is the perfect complement to the offbeat mysteries Friday encounters . . . Give this to readers who like humor but also want more intelligent characters and jokes, as well as those who like quirky mysteries." --Booklist

Girl Detective, A Friday Barnes Mystery

"With off-the-wall plot turns and small mysteries scattered throughout, this is the perfect choice for mystery fans with a silly sense of humor, and the cliff-hanger ending promises more sleuthing on the horizon. Gosier's black-and-white spot illustrations add to the charming atmosphere. A sheer delight." --Booklist, starred review

"Spratt's (the Nanny Piggins series) effortlessly funny narration will keep readers laughing from start to finish." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Quirky, tongue-in-cheek . . . delightfully eccentric . . . A good choice for voracious readers who enjoy a blend of humor and mystery." --School Library Journal

"Spratt begins this new series with a nifty, engaging protagonist who can keep readers laughing and help young geeks feel good about themselves . . . Delightful, highly logical, and well-informed fun." --Kirkus Reviews
