set in in the early 1990s with an 8-year-old Nancy attending elementary school. This second book was a lot better than the first one in the series, which I really did not think was well done at all. I appreciate that this mystery really kept me guessing as it turned out in the end that there wasn't really a thief but a mistaken identify mishap. The message about friendship being more important than material objects is nice as well.

The illustrations aren't particularly good and the children look far older than 8 years old, but I suppose they help break up the text. However, this short book with quick chapters already makes for a fast enough read. It would be a good bridge between early readers and longer chapter books if it wasn't so dated.
