Two eleven-year-old sleuths crack a case about the disappearance of a baseball coach in this humourous and offbeat middle-grade mystery, third in Martha Freeman's popular series. After their last success, Alex and Yasmeen made a pact to stop solving mysteries. However, when Alex's baseball coach, a patriotic war veteran nicknamed Uncle Sam, goes missing, it's hard for the young detectives to resist. Soon the two are tracking down clues involving porta-potties, lawn care chemicals, and secret baseball scouts. Will Alex and Yasmeen get to the bottom of the mystery before the summer is over?

About the Author:

Martha Freeman has written nine books for children and young adults, including "The Trouble with Cats", and the "Chickadee Court" mysteries. Kirkus Reviews praised her First Kids Mystery #1, The Case of the Rock 'n' Roll Dog, for its "Snappy narrative" and called her First Kids Mystery#2, The Case of the Diamond Dog Collar, a "gem." A native of Southern California, she lives in State College, Pennsylvania. Learn more on her website, www.marthafreeman.com.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4–6—Best friends Alex and Yasmeen once again use their detective skills to unmask a criminal. This time, the book centers around Memorial Day, and the misdeed in question is the kidnapping of an Uncle Sam impersonator who is also Alex's baseball coach and co-owner of a lawn-care business that uses a possibly dangerous chemical. The plot depends mostly on humorous misunderstandings to draw readers into the story, but its most winning feature is Alex's narration, which always sums things up in a funny, kid-friendly way. This fast-paced read packs in quick treatments of deeper topics like environmental terrorism, the Vietnam War, and civil disobedience. An appealing choice for mystery fans.—Emily R.
