  1. Just finished reading and will post this afternoon. It felt a bit ‘happily-ever-after’ and yet, that’s okay! As I read about this group of children ‘detectives’ I was reminded of The Little Rascals TV show! 🙂

    1. That’s true, It does feel a bit “happily-ever-after.” I hadn’t thought of that, but then many of the stories I’ve been reading lately have been a bit that way. Of course, I always like a happy ending in a children’s tale.
