Do you love animals? If so, then you should read Nancy Drew: The Zoo Crew by Carolyn Keene. It’s about working together to solve a mystery. In the beginning, Nancy, Bess, and George go to zoo camp and make some toys for the animals. They give each of the animals one toy. Then, some of the toys go missing. Everybody blames Nancy, Bess, and George for miscounting the toys. In the end, they search for the toys and they only have a few hours left to solve the mystery and find out who did it. In conclusion, Nancy Drew: The Zoo Crew is an amazing book you’ll have to read to find out if they find the toys before camp is out for the summer.

Nancy Drew: The Zoo Crew is an amazing book that you’ll never want to put down. First of all, there are really nice characters. They are never mean to each other and they always work together. For example, when Georgie found a footprint she told them and they poured wet cement over it so they could keep the size and shape of the footprint. Second, it makes you want to read more. In almost every chapter it leaves you with a cliffhanger. For example, when they were about to find out the person that did it, the chapter ended. Third, the characters have acceptance for each other. They know each others differences and ignore them and are just best friends. For example, they have different styles and like different things. I think this is an amazing book. I hope you have a “paw”some time reading it!

If you like mysteries and animals then you should read Nancy Drew: The Zoo Crew by Carolyn Keene. Do you love the zoo? If so, then you should read this book. I give this book 5 stars for the mischief and cliffhangers. When they are about to find out who did it the chapter ends. I recommend this book to first through third grade because of the mysteries and fun. Nancy Drew: The Zoo Crew is a great book you’ll “roar” about.
