Greetings from Somewhere: The Mystery of the Mosaic by Harper Paris

Paris, Harper  Greetings from Somewhere:  The Mystery of the Mosaic, 115 pgs.  Illustrated by Marcos Calo  $15.99  Little Simon, 2014.  Content: G.  

This book was about two kids who go to Italy.  Their grandpa wants them to go to see a mosaic and to go try a restaurant. While they are at the restaurant they meet some of their grandpa’s old friends, one of which has a gondola.  One day while they are exploring, they see someone still their new friend’s gondola and they begin their search for the missing gondola.  

I liked that someone stole the gondola, and it wasn’t just lost-it made it a better mystery.  I really liked that it took place in Italy because it seems like an exciting place.  The illustrations are amazing.  This is the second book in the Greetings from Somewhere series.   

EL-ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer: Isabelle, age 10.
