About the Author:

Jill Santopolo is not a super sleuth in training, though she does know how to open locked doors with her MetroCard, where she lives in New York City. She is the author of An Alec Flint Mystery: THE NINA, THE PINTA, AND THE VANISHING TREASURE, as well as Alec Flint's second mystery, THE RANSOM NOTE BLUES, both published by Orchard Books. She recieved a BA from Columbia University and an MFA from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. When she's not writing her own books, Jill edits children's books for a major publishing house. You can visit her online at www.jillsantopolo.com.

From Booklist:

Alec, Santopolo’s young sleuth talks like a fourth-grader, acts like a fourth-grader, and, mostly, thinks like one, too. Sometimes he wonders why Tater Tots and pizza always pop up together on the school cafeteria menu. Or why he gets that “marshmallowy” feeling in his stomach when he has done something wrong and has to tell his dad. Or whether clever, daring classmate Gina Rossi will make a good sleuthing partner when they both grow up. In this adventure, gold coins, a broken drinking glass, a plastic telescope, and a newspaper photo are the clues the kids use to solve two mysterious disappearances, one of which seems to stump even Mr. Flint, the cop.  Contrived? Sure. But most mysteries for this age group are; what sets this apart is its lively characters, a thoughtfully derived sprinkling of clues for the kids to pursue, and the opportunity for readers to have as much fun solving the mystery (and decoding the coded messages) as Alec and Gina. Grades 3-5. --Stephanie Zvirin
