The Old Mansion's Secret ~ a Christmas Story Review

The Old Mansion's Secret a Christmas Storyby Rebekah A. Morris
"Taking a shortcut on a lonely country road, Daniel, Esther, and their cousin, Moni, stumble upon a mystery! A glimmering, sparkling, brightly lit Christmas tree is framed within the window of an old, long-abandoned, dilapidated mansion. The children are determined to solve the mystery and discover the old mansion's secret–before Christmas." ~ Read Another Page

My Thoughts:

I thought I had the mystery of The Old Mansion's Secret figured out more than once as I read through this Christmas novella. Nope. There was a terrific surprise ending—at least it surprised me—though looking back, there were a few clues. I enjoyed the energy of the kids in this book. They are analytical thinkers who track down every clue that they can while following the rules the adults give them. 

I really enjoyed this book. I think it would make a terrific read aloud book for youngsters up through junior high especially. This is a short book—just 92 pages of easy, enjoyable reading. Clean, respectful, and parent honoring.
