Synopsis: Randi Rhodes and her fellow ninja detectives, DC and Pudge, were flying high after solving the Case of the Time-Capsule Bandit. But life in sleepy Deer Creek has begun to feel…a bit boring. There are no crimes to investigate! But a trip to New York City to visit Randi’s aunt changes that! While the ninja detective trio explores Randi’s old neighborhood in Brooklyn, they uncover an art heist. Except no one will believe them. So they’ll just have to catch the criminals in the act…
Thoughts: I thought this book was a little slow at first and the vocabulary might be a little high for a 3rd grader but then the action picked up. I was able to finish reading the book once the storyline improved. I would say this is for a higher reader in third grade and this is the second book in the series. Definately worth recommending if a patron likes action with young kids kicking some people around.
