5.0 out of 5 stars Hats Off to No Clues No Shoes!Reviewed in the United States on November 17, 2011

Addison Apple is back and this time he’s got a friend! Addison is in a new town and has moved in down the street from Miss Emelina Hewitt and her dog, Stanley.

Emelina likes to chatter. She also likes to solve crime. When she and Addison have the chance to go to detective school, she hops in excitedly. Even before they’re done with the course, they get their first crime. Shoes are missing, but there are no clues to help our two detectives pursue the possible perpetrator. Can Emelina and Addison sove this uncanny crime?

“No Clues No Shoes” is a wonderful, lighthearted story for third grade on up to read independently, or younger children to read with an adult. It’s a charmingly written chapter book that will keep a young reader’s interest.

Emelina is an energetic, bubbly character who will engage a child’s attention. Addison, who is much quieter, enjoys her lively presence. “No Clues No Shoes” is a great story that introduces children to the fascinating world of detective work.

Beautiful tale of love.Reviewed in Canada on December 17, 2018Verified Purchase

Wow! I was in love with the 3 main characters from the get-go!. Margo and Darryl are explosive together. Justin was my fave as he kept a cool head as Meggie and Darryl tore strips off each other. The dynamics of the characters and the plot kept me reading into the wee hrs. I give this story 5 lightening bolts for a sizzling read.

PLANETPOULTRYBLURB2.jpg

Planet Poultry tells the story of five friends who work together in a chicken processing factory in the North East of England. Each of them is struggling with their own personal dilemas but living in the hope that things can only get better. One day, something monumental happens that changes their lives forever… In this gritty story, we come face to face with real-life issues such as: domestic violence, addiction, depression and the heart-rending tick of the biological clock. Yet there is also an injection of humour and warmth which is certain to keep the reader enthralled and feeling great empathy for these realistic characters who could so easily be their very own neighbours or friends. Whilst reading Planet Poultry, we are taught some valuable lessons: the importance of good friends; to always have hope and never give up because we never know what lies round the corner; and, most importantly, that revenge is a dish best served cold!

NO CLUES NO SHOES BY MARSHA CASPER COOK
REVIEW BY KAREN VAUGHAN
Emelina and Addison are new friends. Emelina talks too much but wants to be a private detective. She and Addison are attending library day when another kid in the group announces that his shoe has been stolen. Emelina, Addison and her dog Stanley are on the case. They search the lost and found without any luck. They search the park and find what they were looking for and a whole lot more. They also find the culprit of this crime.
The story is aimed at 3-7 year olds and is great for detective wannnabes. Emelina is larger than life and a lot of fun. It was a fun little read and I recommend it for children in grades 1 or 2. I give this story 5 blue shoes.

So began the story of Margo, Darryl, and Justin. Together they faced anything life could throw at them by cussing, pretending, and fighting back.
