Her first case is found when her mom takes her to a petting zoo and she is much older than the other kids. Her mom is talking to a friend she ran into so Amelia wanders off to look for horses after she has climbed a fence or two she is close to the stables when she runs into Trudy from school. They are not friends. Trudy tells her to stay away from the horses its her fathers farm but she can go see the stupid cows. One of the farmhand is carring a breifcase that looks out of place. The cows are heading straight for Amelia when she is hears this clicking sound and realizes its from the cows. She realizes all the cows are machines not animals. The cows chase her and then the chickens. But Amelia will save the world from being taken over by zombie animals.Her next case happens after she has missed a week of school from illness. Their is a new music teacher that when she plays her pipe all the kids react the same, but when the bell rings they act normal. Amelia notices and takes actions again.
The third case is the new bakery in town. Their baked goods are all much bigger and a lot cheaper than the other bakeries in town.
Twin sisters that are really thin and dressed like fashion models on runways. So Amelia takes a look to see what they are up too. Saves the world again.
These stories are short that the young readers will like. The drawings are cute and tell half the story. Amelia takes notice of things around her. Uses her different costumes to not be noticed. I think the books will get kids interested in reading.
I was given this ebook in exchange of honest review.
