- sheila "A reader who loves to sew, which makes Audible ideal. No special trends but always on the lookout for recommended titles. Appreciate good stories not the graphic details which seem to be the trend."


This is the same story as The Great Cake Mystery so if listen to that do not buy this one or you will waste a credit as I did. Adjoa Andoh does a great job narrating the story. The story is short but delightful. It covers Precious's first case as a child detective as she finds out who is stealing the children's school lunches, mainly the cake.
Remember this story for a 1 hour trip with the kids this summer everyone will enjoy it.
