Nancy Drew and the Zoo Crew is one of my favorite books that I ever read. My favorite part in this book is when the chimps were playing with plates and throwing them at campers from another team. That part was really funny. This book reminds me of my friend and I because we always solve mysteries about different things. One time I lost my bracelet and I looked everywhere, but I couldnít find it. I asked my grandma and she said to look in my room. It was a real mystery. Then I remembered that the last time I saw it was in my brotherís room on his desk. So I looked and I found it! I like the character Nancy because she is very smart and never gives up. There was only one day of camp left, but Nancy knew what to do to find the missing toys. There was a party at night and they wondered where Marnie was. They saw her running to the shed and they followed her. Behind the shed was the animal shelter and they saw some animals that were sick. When they checked the x-ray machine that the zoo uses to see why the animals were sick, they found a clue. The clue helped them find out why the animals were sick and how to get the missing toys back. Thatís why I liked to read this series.
I would recommend this book to 1st through 4th graders. If you like to solve mysteries and to read about people who solve them, this is a perfect series for you. Nancy, Bess, and George worked really hard to find out who the thief was. This is why it is one of my favorite books. Maybe you should give it a try too.
