Synopsis: Alvin Fernald, boy detective, combines his Magnificent Brain with a summer theater's costume collection to solve a mystery involving hidden treasure and a secret cave.

From School Library Journal: Grade 4-6 This latest in the Alvin Fernald comedy adventure series (Holt) is not up to par. Here, Alvin's adventures are set in motion when his mother recruits him, his little sister Daphne and his friend Shoie to inventory a large collection of costumes belonging to a defunct summer theatre. Through a chain of unlikely circumstances, Alvin and the gang become involved in solving an old mystery having to do with some stolen opals. By wearing the various costumes in unusual ways, the kids foil the bad guys and return the opals to their rightful owner. A major problem here is that the leap from the costumes to the mystery is so improbable that it strains credulity. Another problem is that the dialogue is corny and old-fashioned, giving the book a dated quality. It just doesn't seem like 1986. There are some amusing moments, and the mystery part of the plot isn't bad, but on the whole, this is a minor entry for undemanding readers who liked the earlier titles. Ruth Levien, Rockville Centre Public Library, N.Y.
