Misty is a little girl in third grade. Her little brother left her brand new bike in the street and a speeding car ran over it. Not only is her bike crashed, but it has red dirt! Misty and her friends are detectives, and they learn that the red dirt comes from Arizona, so the car that ran over her bike must be from Arizona. Can the Third Grade Detective and her friends Noelle and Todd find out who did it? Read The Case of the Dirty Clue to find out.

My favorite part was when one of the teachers said, "Is everyone still hungry?" I liked that part because it was funny. I think this is an interesting book because it is a mystery. I like mysteries because they make me think more. I liked the character Noodle becasue she said funny things that made me laugh. I think this is a great book!

I would recommend this book because if you read it there are some funny parts and some mysteries. I think second, third and fourth graders would like this book.
