    A treat from the late, great comic artist, Stan Goldberg.

    As a child, one of my favorite genres of stories to read were mystery books. I enjoyed feeling like a detective and felt as though I was solving puzzles. Mystery has plenty of action, drama, and exciting events. Nancy Drew stories were one of my favorites and it was nice to see how the series continued, but in a different way. If I were a child, I would have enjoyed reading this version due to the visuals that really help get a sense of the characters and events in the story.

If I were a child, I would have enjoyed reading this version due to the visuals that really help get a sense of the characters and events in the story. Nancy Drew and the Sleuths, her friends Bess and George, were on a school field trip to the Museum of Modern Art. The museum had the last demonstration in an exhibit that displayed Sand Painting, also known as Mandala. As they class was getting ready to visit the exhibit, there was a bit of a mishap. The exhibit was closed, due to the artwork falling apart! What happened? Who did it? Why did this happen? This calls for a Mystery that has to be solved! It was up to Nancy Drew and the Sleuths to look for clues and figure out what happened to the artwork, while proving someone being framed was innocent. This story would be perfect for elementary school students of 2-5th grade. I remember doing a project based on a mystery book I read, which involved creating a board game, similar to the game of "Clue." This would be a unique project to help summarize and figure out what the text was about.

    While the mystery itself is good, I agree with another reviewer that Nancy and her friends are poorly drawn. In some frames, their faces look like circles viewed at a angle rather than two dimensional view of a three dimensional head. And Nancy's hairstyle is ugly. But I'm an adult. I think a younger child would enjoy this. While the mystery itself is good, I agree with another reviewer that Nancy and her friends are poorly drawn.

    The mystery was puzzling enough for more stars, but the artwork was too distracting. I did not like it at all. Nancy and her friends sometimes looked like boys with wigs on. There was just something about their faces that was unappealing to me. Will not be reading any further books in this series.

    This is the second book in the Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew Graphic Novels series. We've read many of the books in the Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew chapter books, so this was a natural transition. Our youngest read it right away and asked for the next one. So far there are only two in the series, so we may have to wait a bit for more. The graphic novel format is entertaining and the story is short.

So far there are only two in the series, so we may have to wait a bit for more. The graphic novel format is entertaining and the story is short. Because it was a very fast read, I think I actually like it better than the chapter books, which can get awfully tedious. The illustrations are quite different from those by Macky Pamintuan, but they still evoke the characters our girls have come to love. I really liked the philosophical dialogue by the Buddhist monk and the Mandala sand art. Our oldest loved the nod to her favorite television show: Mythbusters. interesting quotes: "I am grateful to all beings and elements that support my existence. May I be worthy to receive this food and use it well for practice, providing loving kindness to all beings." (p. 29) "The destruction of the painting symbolizes the impermanent nature of all things. Pour this sand into a stream -- so it's healing power can be shared by the whole world." (p. 53)

Professional Review: This book was an immediate draw for me. I'm a huge mystery buff and Nancy Drew, the original chapter books, was one of the series that I grew up with. This story finds third grade versions of Nancy and her fellow detectives stumbling across a mystery to solve. They are on a school field trip to the museum when art work gets damaged. When a museum employee is wrongfully accused, according to Nancy, of the damage, Nancy and the Clue Crew set out to prove her innocence. To find out the real culprit of the damage, you'll have to read this graphic novel. While this mystery is said to be for grades 3 - 6, it seemed too simple to me for those ages. Several of my current 3rd grade students could figure out the ending before reading it. Therefore, it might be a better fit for younger readers. Instructional Support: This book could easily have more than one use. First of all, there is the fact that a mystery lends itself easily to fitting in with teaching problem and solution. Secondly, prediction and/or inference is also a clear connection to a mystery. All of these things are part of the 3rd grade reading/language arts curriculum. So it would be an excellent source for meeting all these needs.
