A fun mystery for kids.

This was a fun and quick read. I listened to it with my 6 year old and he loved it.

Maisy loves the old black and white detective movies and loves nothing better than solving mysteries like her favourite detectives. When her school mascots goes missing, Maisy goes into detective mode to find them.

As I said, my 6 year old son really enjoyed this. He thought Maisy was brave and smart and had a lot of fun trying to see who was the culprit. Myself, I thought Maisy is a worthy heroine. I loved how when she goes into detective mode, she sees the world as black and white and when she gets close to solving it, the colour starts to seep back in. It was a unique and interesting addition to Maisy.

The plot is fast paced and even though it's a very short listen, it was a well fleshed out and entertaining read. The author did a great job of building the suspense and clues and creating a lovable heroine.

In all, a great listen for your child. It captures their attention and makes them eager to read the whole book.

Initially, I found it odd to listen to Reba Buhr because she sounded like a chipmunk, very high pitched and fast, but I quickly saw that my son must have accidentally sped up the speed because it was at 2.5 times the normal!! Once I slowed it down a bit, the narrator became a little more easier to listen to, though I still found her to use too high a pitch for Maisy. It felt a little forced!

Really Fun Kids' Mystery

Maisy and the Missing Mice was a fun mystery for the younger set. I have to say, I enjoyed it as well. The story was well written and it was fun to guess 'whodunit'. I thought the narrator did a nice job.
