Book Review - Doc and the Detective in: Graveyard Treasure

Doc and the Detective in: Graveyard Treasure

About the Book
A Choctaw boy with a taste for detective work teams up with a lonely old professor in this charming middle-grade mystery from a two-time winner of the American Indian Youth Literature Award.

Timmy loves reading stories about great detectives, and soon he begins to spy mysteries all around his small Oklahoma town.

Why was his next-door neighbor, the distinguished Dr. Moore, standing outside with a knife at midnight? Who's sneaking around their house, shining flashlights in the windows? And where did Mrs. Newberry's diamond necklace go? As Timmy and Doc work together to unmask the thief, Timmy also comes to understand the challenges Doc and his family face with his developing dementia, and discovers that a real detective needs a good heart as well as a sharp brain.

My Take on the Book
This was a great book with a mystery, adventure and a world that could be seen as our own. The characters were compelling and my daughter who is close to the same age as the main character felt connected to the character and she loved reading this and she did not want to put the book down. The book kept you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end.
