Children's Picture Book Review: Maggie Mae, Detective Extraordinaire: The Case of the Missing Cookies

The sweet smell of super-duper snicker doodles wafts through the air as Grandma prepares for the bake sale. Singing away as she wraps each dozen into plastic bags, she is astonished that bags are missing. Calling on her granddaughter, Maggie Mae, to help solve the mystery of the missing cookies, Maggie Mae puts her detective skills to the test. Interviewing each member of the household, grandfather, brother and even Toby the dog she attempts to catch the culprit and to unearth what the whistle noise before a bag of snicker doodles goes missing has to do with it.

Join YA and Kids' author, Margo Dill as she creates a mystery of intrigue that will have the reader jumping to their own conclusions in hopes of solving the mystery before Maggie Mae, Detective Extraordinaire does.  Jack Foster’s trademark illustrations provide sweetness throughout.

  1. Thank you, Donna. I love this 1st paragraph of your review. You are very good at writing these! :) I appreciate your time in helping me with my book. I'm sorry it took me a couple days to get over here. At our house, Halloween has become a week event instead of just a day! :) BTW, Happy Halloween!
