Hi! My name’s Jo Daniels. I like to ride bikes, skateboard, and read! My favorite books are mystery books. Sometimes I like to solve mysteries! But don’t tell my dad. I promised I wouldn’t “get into any more questionable shenanigans.” So I”m stickin’ to plain, ol’ shenanigans. Join me in a few! I’ll tell you all about them in my next story, “The Mystery of the Blue Dog.”

Absolutely loved this! I haven't read a children's book in a while and decided to pick this up on a whim. Did not disappoint. Super fun, and an overall easy read.
Adorable book! Recommended for ages 9-12 and I would say that’s reasonable. My 6 year listened on with my 9 year old and she enjoyed it as well.
Jo was in for it, this time, she was caught redhanded stealing of all things. Being a bright kid and all, Jo knew exactly how to get the help she needed to complete the task given to her as punishment. What she didn’t expect was to be rewarded in any way. A fantastic, fun, and exciting story, with great quirky characters, a fun read your kids would truly enjoy.
Liked that this was an easy quick read. The story flowed well and had a great beginning, middle, end. Really liked Jo. She's tough and smart. And I enj9yed that all the friends had very different personalities.
This book was the type of book you read and just smile and laugh. The kids will really enjoy reading this fun, loving book. Even though the girl gets in trouble, it is all teaching a lesson that kids need to learn and this book shows how. It is well written and an easy read. The book reminds me of Beverly Cleary book.

If I had grade school age kids in my family, I'd get them this book! It's a fun read and the characters are relatable to the 3-6th grade group. I like the togetherness of the family and friends, it's a pleasant story for kids. Might make a good summer story, or with covid keeping so many home, this might just fill in some downtime from school work and social distancing. It's a quick, easy story. I'm looking forward to M. Carroll's next book!
Such a beautiful and cute book I couldn't put down to even do anything because it was so good. Highly recommend for anyone who loves fast reads such as this.
