Editorial Reviews

A Word on the Series:

“Once in a long while, one comes across a children’s series that is not only well-written but says something meaningful. This is one of those series. The Dani P. Mystery books are fun, engaging, a real delightful read. The dialogue has both warmth and spunk, the plots are well developed and we come to care for the characters because the author cares about them. Each adventure is a treat. These are the sort of stories that make reading fun. They also tell us about friendship, loyalty, unexpected courage – and, mostly, that having the confidence to be oneself, even though different, is a good thing.

Root for spunk. Root for overalls. Root for the Junior Detective Team!”

“It is a good book for children and perfect to be kept in school libraries. The plot is intelligent and creative and makes for a fun read.” 
– Reader’s Favorite Editorial Review, 5 stars

“The writing style is so fluid that the plot moves smoothly. It is educational in that kids are introduced to new words which will help them improve their vocabulary. The best part in both the volumes is the friendship between Dani and her friend Chloe. Both of them are different personalities but the bond they share is strong. The combination of mystery, humor and fun works well here. The story is well crafted from the beginning to the end. It gives proper messages to kids and is also about a friendship in which both girls complement each other very well.”

The author creates suspense, captivating emergent readers while giving them a solid storyline and some advanced vocabulary.”
