My favorite part of the book is when they cut open the statue and found out where the wood was from. I like this part because it is a main part in helping them solve the mystery. I thought it was a clever clue. This book is like other books in this series because it starts by introducing Todd and Noelle and then the mystery. This book is unique because all the clues were given to the detectives by the same person, but that person didn't just tell the clues to the detectives. He put them in a secret code that they had to figure out.
This book is good but sometimes hard to figure out. I would recommend this book to 2nd - 4th graders because it is challenging to figure out who did it. You always have to stay on your toes for the next clue.
