As always with Andrews I laughed a lot and enjoyed the antics of the family. This is a fun book, good mystery, new addition to the Langslow family and is a wonderful followup to the rest of the books. The adventures are always fun and the way it is written is priceless. Andrews has a marvelous sense of humor and a great way of putting it all together. Great, good fun and for me extremely enjoyable. Looking forward to all that follow. May many more follow.
