From the Back Cover

"Do you want Mrs. 
Pringle gone forever, her reputation tarnished? She'd never get another job if she's charged with theft." Trevor, Nick and Robyn are hot on the trail of the sandwich thief when they learn that more than food has gone missing at school.
A valuable hockey book has been stolen from the library, and the librarian might lose her job if it isn't found.
Who would steal a hockey book? Could it be Robyn's archnemesis and hockey enthusiast, Cray? Or could it be the Oilers fan, Ms.
Thorson? The kids are determined to solve these mysteries even though their sleuthing efforts land them in trouble at every turn.

"Do you want Mrs. 
Pringle gone forever, her reputation tarnished? She'd never get another job if she's charged with theft.
She'll end up with no money, no house, stuffing old newspapers into her boots to keep her feet warm in the winter!" Robyn's voice rose.
She sniffed.
I rolled my eyes.
"Robyn, get a grip! No one's talking about a crime, here." "How did you know? Maybe someone took that book and tried to sell it," Robyn retorted.
"And how would a person sell something like that, Robyn? A garage sale?" I shook my head.

Comment List (Total:1)

  •     Best friends Robin, Nick, and Trevor never planned on becoming detectives. But when several school lunches, and even more importantly, a signed copy of a rare Wayne Gretzy, go missing, they leap into action and begin sleuthing.What starts out as simple mystery solving turns into an all-consuming passion for the three young Holmes'. Their homework and other school obligations are put on the back burner, and soon they become completely swept away in their quest to solve the mystery -- and catch the perpetrator.This novel is an easy read for most middle schoolers, but it provides a lot of entertainment in a fast-paced manner. An excellent choice for students who are reluctant to pick up books.Reviewed by: Emylee
