"A detective is born! What a delightful, breezy read!"
--Mary Pope Osborne, bestselling author of "The Magic Tree House" series
"Told with an innocence that will captivate young readers, "The Great Cake Mystery" is a kind-hearted, feel-good story for all. Loved it!"

"Kids will love this kind and clever new detective. They'll love the mystery, and they might even love the thieves. I look forward to more!"
--Patricia Reilly Giff, award-winning author of "Wild Girl" and other books
"Stunning artwork. . . . A compelling plot and interesting secondary characters, especially classmates who are quick to make unfounded accusations and their teacher, who provides wisdom just when it is needed, will leave readers wanting more. One case where an adaptation from an adult book is as much fun to read as the original."
--"Kirkus Reviews", starred review
"This mini mystery and its jaw-dropping illustrations will please proto-detectives, both large and small. . . . What [McCall Smith]'s done with "The Great Cake Mystery" is unique. . . . His fans will pluck it up like so many of his other books. . . . A really fun read."
