The Mystery of the Stolen Painting by Harper Paris -- ADVISABLE

Paris, Harper The Mystery of the Stolen Painting (Greetings From Somewhere #3), illustrated by Marcos Calo. 122 pgs. Little Simon, 2014. $15.99. Content: G.

Ethan and Ella are visiting Paris when they learn about a painting that's been stolen from the Louvre Museum. No problem; Ella remembers a vital clue that could help these twins be the ones to find the lost art.

This story is full of adventure and mystery, while the lack of real peril keeps it from being truly scary. Paris makes a good setting, and the author and illustrator bring it to life well. This is the third in the series, and while it did stand on its own, I felt a bit as if I were missing something, not having read the first two books. This may be a set to read in order.

EL -- ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Caryn
