56 review for Super Puzzletastic Mysteries: Short Stories for Young Sleuths from Mystery Writers of America

  1. 5 out of 5

    Stuart

    Admittedly, I wrote one of the mysteries in this book. But now, I've received an advanced readers copy and been able to read all the other mysteries -- and they're wonderful! Some are funny. Some are touching. Some are quirky. Some are diabolical. But they are all incredibly clever and a great amount of fun to read. Chris Grabenstein assembled a fantastic team for this book and everyone has done amazing work here.

    A kaleidoscope of murder mysteries from some of the best writers in middle grade fiction. Each one captures the style of the author and the solutions are in a separate chapter at the end of the book to allow for junior sleuths to exercise their crime-solving skills. It would make a fun classroom resource whether it be a read-aloud or used to give extra credit or as brain teasers. If you can, check it out this summer and share it with the kids in your life. Highly recommended! Thank you to HarperC A kaleidoscope of murder mysteries from some of the best writers in middle grade fiction.

    This book for middle grade readers features twenty stories by members of Mystery Writers of America. Each story provides the clues and puzzles you need to solve it along with the characters.

Each story provides the clues and puzzles you need to solve it along with the characters. In fact, the solutions are at the back of the book to give you time to figure out what is really going on before you see if you got it right. While a few authors feature series sleuths, most of the stories feature original characters. And all of them are fun. Many are straight up mysteries, but some feature puzzles we can learn about and solve with the characters along the way. The stories average about 15 pages each, so they would work well for reading aloud and solving as a group. It might take a group to solve some of them. I figured a few out, but many left me stumped until I turned to the end. There isn’t a bad story in the bunch, and kids will certainly enjoy this collection as much as I did. Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

    E ARC provided by Edelweiss Plus Short story collections are hard to review, especially when one includes so many fantastic authors! My students will be glad to see new FunJungle and Riley Mack stories, and skip ahead to the entries by Ponti, Lerangis, and Milford.

Add Fleur Bradley, Lamar Giles, Bruce Hale, and Tyler Whitesides, along with several authors I really need to investigate now, and this book will fly off the shelf. Short stories collections don't do terribly well in my library, with one notable exception: scary stories and mysteries. This is a fantastic collection of stories that have the reader trying to figure out the mystery, the answers to which are provided at the back, ala Donald Sobol's Encyclopedia Brown books. Just trust me. You need to read this. It's great not only for students, but for teachers who want to do in class read alouds.

    I won an ARC of Super Puzzletastic Mysteries, which is a collection of short story mysteries for kids. This book is laid out exactly like the mini mystery books I got from the local discount store as a kid. Each mystery’s solution is at the back of the book and isn’t just a simple answer, it’s a continuation of that story. The stories are quick reads and something you and your children could read at night (or solo) before bed and discuss in the morning over breakfast.

It really is a middle grade book so the characters are obviously middle school kids, however it’s still a fun book for any age mystery lover.

    Received an ARC courtesy of the publisher via Edelweiss. Younger me loved these types of books, and I really enjoyed this one and trying to solve the mysteries along with the characters.

    Full disclosure: I wrote one of the stories which follow the characters from my Whiz Tanner series. However ... the other 19 stories are well worth the read. Each one presents an interesting puzzle or set of clues that are in plain sight but need to be put together by the sleuth reading it. I was never disappointed.

    This book was so amazing! A collection of twenty great mystery short stories with the answers at the end of the book. The authors include Kate Milford, Stuart Gibbs, Peter Lerangis, and Chris Grabenstein. I say with utmost confidence that this is one of the best books I have read this year.

    This was a fantastic group of short mysteries set up like an updated Encyclopedia Brown, with the answers all in the back. (Somewhat challenging to read on a Kindle, but worth it.) I was excited to see reappearances from some favorite series like FunJungle and Greenglass House and also to be introduced to authors that I would like to read more of. I was able to figure out some of the solutions. All of the mysteries are very cleverly done. Highly recommended for grades 4 & up. eARC provided by pub This was a fantastic group of short mysteries set up like an updated Encyclopedia Brown, with the answers all in the back.

    I received this digital ARC from the publisher through Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review. Like Chris Grabenstein, I too grew up on Donald J. Sobol's Two Minute Myseteries. I was looking forward to this anthology of mysteries by a wide range of middle grade authors. I liked the format of the book, as it was very similar to the Two Minute Mysteries that inspired it. Most of the mysteries I enjoyed, though I felt a few would be a stretch for the reader to have figured out the solution, as s I received this digital ARC from the publisher through Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review.

I liked the format of the book, as it was very similar to the Two Minute Mysteries that inspired it. Most of the mysteries I enjoyed, though I felt a few would be a stretch for the reader to have figured out the solution, as some of the evidence seemed tenuous or missing. Overall, I think the stories themselves would be great for a class read aloud - either as a collection, or as individual stories, throughout the year.
