    6. I personally did not love this book. It was simple and kids would be able to read and comprehend, but the story did not really teach me any kind of life lesson or moral. I think that it should have taught me something or given me some kind of moral dilemma or used the pages better to give a story. I did not feel like their was a climax and the solving of the mystery did not seem easy to follow for children, with the deductive reasoning of the crow being the thief. I thought solving the mystery s [...]

    7. There are two detectives in this book: Jack and Bunny. They are hilarious characters that constantly bicker about the smallest things. While they are eating at the local grill, the owner of the store asks them if they can help him figure out who stole the glass monkey that was near the cash register. The two of them take notes on their surroundings and work together to solve the mystery. Young students would love trying to figure out the mystery with all the notes/hints they gather.

    10. The Case of the Missing Monkey was not the most interesting mystery I've ever read and I didn't find it humorous enough to hold my interest, let alone a small child's. But then again they might find the animal characters interesting enough. The case of the missing monkey, is not much of a case. The glass monkey was mearly borrowed by a crow caring for his baby. While eating breakfast one morning, he must have used it to keep the baby quiet and forgot to return it that day, but he didn leave it b [...]

    12. The books in the High-Rise Private Eyes series are great for new readers as well as for younger children who like mysteries, but cannot sit still long enough for bigger chapter books. The characters are funny and they interact much as siblings do. The mystery in this book was fairly simple, but interesting, and I like that it encourages children to be observant. We've read this one a couple of times.

    13. This is a level 2 reading book, a child could read it with help there is MUCH repetitive words and phrases. (Actually so many repetitive that it got 'old' reading it out loud.) The storyline was actually a nice one and the meaning was there with it being an introduction to mysteries to children. But the wording was so very repetitive that it got old fast reading it outloud to my special needs teenage son. We did stay with it and finish the story but if it had continued it would have 'lost' us.

    14. My older daughter LOVES mysteries, and this series was just perfect for her when she was ready to start chapter books. Jack and his partner Bunny have a dry wit, and often the jokes would amuse me greatly, but go over her head. That's part of what makes these books perfect: there is a level of great enjoyment for the child reader, AND a level of enjoyment for the adult who listens. Plus, a mystery to solve!

    15. As a parent, these books drive me nuts. The plots are cute but there's so much dialogue (with the "Bunny said" after each statement made by Bunny) that they are obnoxious to read out loud.The kids love them and don't mind listening to it though :-) We have a few of them and they like all of them.

    16. A glass monkey is missing from The Grill Next Door and the restaurant is full of suspects. This is just the sort of case for high-rise private eyes Bunny Brown and Jack Jones. Kids will laugh as these two friends bicker, banter and solve the mystery in this fun series for beginning readers.

    17. Wow this book just boring.Literally, nothing happened. They're arguing about food which turns into a case for a missing figurine then they find out who took it and did nothing because he returned it So riveting.

    18. This is the first in the High-Rise Private Eyes books (a "series" that does not need to be read in order). I got a kick out of how Bunny carefully went through her reasoning in solving the mystery. Too neat? Not for the target age group - it's a good example of logical reasoning.

    19. This is the first book in the series High-Rise Private Eyes. Bunny Brown and Jack Jones help to solve mysteries all over the city. In this story, they are looking for a missing glass monkey in a restaurant. This would be a great book to read when teaching about the mystery genre.

    20. This is a good Rylant book where I'd read more in the series. It was funny and looks interesting from the cover and the inside. Now that I remember, it was kind of annoying but I think that's funny to little kids.

    21. This was an okay mystery book done for young children. It is a good option for young elementary children. It is a humorous "mystery" with repetitive verses and easy vocabulary. Overall it was a decent book, and an easy beginning chapter book for children.

    22. A fun mystery series for beginning readers. The readalong recording is great. The reader uses fun inflections, but still maintains an even reading pattern, so as not to lose struggling readers.
