9780823429165: The Case of the Piggy Bank Thief: First Kids Mystery #4

Although a stolen piggy bank is normally no big deal, this particular bank belongs to seven-year-old Tessa, whose mother is the president of the United States.


When her eleven-year-old sister, Cammie, finds out that the piggy also held an old coin their dog, Hooligan, dug up from the White House lawn, the case really gets complicated―and delicate. The coin in question, they realize, is probably the one archaeologists have been trying to uncover and is worth millions! The girls have got to find the culprit and the coin and turn it in or their mother will have a major scandal on her hands.

About the Author:

Martha Freeman has written fiction for children of all ages. The Horn Book praised her rich details and well-drawn characters in her most recent novel The Orphan and the Mouse, declaring it "a satisfying package of happy homecomings, evil exposed, and the virtues of loyalty, bravery, and literacy rewarded." She lives in Philadelphia.  

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-Cammie (aka Fussbudget) and Tessa (aka Fireball) are the daughters of the first female president of the United States. In this installment in the series, Tessa's piggy bank is stolen and treasure is missing from the White House lawn. It appears that the girls have two mysteries to solve at once-or are the thefts somehow related? The writing style is smart and witty, and has an upbeat feel. The author depicts kids in a realistic and respectful way. The book's pacing, short chapters, and plot twists will engage reluctant readers, and the inclusion of boy characters and their fun banter with the girls creates wide appeal.-Cass Mabbott, Seattle Public Library, WAα(c) Copyright 2011.
