You must read The Case of the Bicycle Bandit because it's a fantastic book! The author described how the characters felt. Instead of just coming out and saying they are happy, sad, etc. The author wrote, "Ralphie's chin was buried in his hands" when his bike got stolen. Also, "Ralphie's eardrums almost burst from wild, joyous screams" when then they found the bike. The illustrations are great because the faces show a lot of expressions. You can see how Ralphie's face was so sad because Ralphie's head was in his hands on page nine. Jigsaw was afraid of being found in the bicycle theif's garage because Jigsaw 's heart was beating extremely fast. I like this book because it was suspensful and there were clues given about the mysteries. On page eighteen, there was a secret code. It was awsome decoding it! On page forty-four, Geetha drew the bicycle theif and the children wondered if they would find the theif. So you can see The Case of the Bicycle Bandit is a fantastic book because it has good descriptions about characters, contains excellent illustrations, and is suspenseful!
I recommend this book to anyone who has ever had their bike stolen and if you like a good mystery .You will feel anxious to find out who stole Ralphie's bike, and you won't be able to stop reading until you do! Read The Case of the Bicycle Bandit!
