Entertaining. Karrine is a really cool character!

What made the experience of listening to Crime Solver's Detective Agency the most enjoyable?

The narrator, Stefanie Paige delivered a powerful performance. Very good!

If you’ve listened to books by Victoria Schwimley before, how does this one compare?

This is my first experience of books by Victoria Schwimley.

What about Stefanie Paige’s performance did you like?

Stefanie's performance was full of enthusiasm and very upbeat! I thought she portrayed the four different stories very well.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Call Karrine's Crime Solver's Detective Agency for that personal touch - with results!

Any additional comments?

Modern and ideal for the younger crowd. Karrine is a really cool character. There's lots of humour in these four stories. Just one caution; fiction, detective or not, still needs to be believable and realistic. I feel that some of the scenarios are borderline in this respect. But nevertheless, still a very good and entertaining listen!

Crime Solver's Detective Agency

Would you consider the audio edition of Crime Solver's Detective Agency to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Magical Disappearing Act was my daughter's favorite mystery. She liked that it ended up being a prank but didn't see it coming.

What does Stefanie Paige bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

We were able to enjoy the book while traveling.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Although we listened to the entire book in one day (2 sittings), it would have worked well to have listened to one mystery at a time. My daughter (8) would probably have enjoyed it more if we had broken it down.

Any additional comments?

My daughter has recently become interested in mysteries and enjoyed trying to figure out the mysteries. We enjoyed the story and the narration. I wondered whether the talk of dead bodies and autopsies in the last story, The Body, would disturb her with the but it didn't seem to.
