    If you don t remember or if you weren t following my blog at the time, I also reviewed the prequel to this book, The Best Mistake Mystery, through Netgalley as well as interviewed author Sylvia McNicoll During the interview, Sylvia mentioned that she was extending the series to at least three books When she told me what this one would be about, I became ecstatic I am not really an artist myself, but I definitely love reading about art And so when I saw The Artsy Mistake Mystery all ready to go on Netgalley, I downloaded it right away I enjoyed this book just as much as its prequel I once again fell in love with the characters, the dogs, and the mystery of this series I will definitely be reading on once book s are ready This book is the second instalment in the Great Mistake Mysteries series, but in my opinion, it could definitely be read as a standalone It s a completely different storyline it s just set in the same place with the same characters.For a brief synopsis, this book follows our favourite characters from The Best Mistake Mystery, Stephen and Ren e Ren e s brother Attila is being accused of stealing many outdoor artworks from around their neighbourhood The two do not believe that he should be the one who is to be blamed, so they set off to find the culprit.Once again, Stephe...

    This book is the second in the Great Mistake Mysteries Series It is another wonderful read from Sylvia McNicoll This is a wonderful book in an amazing series Currently it is book 2 of a planned trilogy but after reading the first two I hope it goes well beyond the three planned volumes In my review of volume 1 The Best Mistake Mystery I stated that in some ways it reads like The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time by Mark Haddon but written for kids And that feeling in many ways is even stronger after reading this volume The story is wonderfully written and the pace of this volume is a little quicker than the first book Again one of the greatest strengths of this book is our main characters Stephen Nobel and Ren e Kobai It is great to watch them grow and mature.In this book both Stephen and Renee are still working on growing their friendship And finding ways to deal with the stress they each have in their life Family stress, school stress, and stress from just being kids goring up Local art starts disappearing From painted mailboxes, to fish on the kindergarten wall But than that is going on Stephen has a run in with kids in black caps A gun is found in the school and the whole neighbourhood soon seems to be on alert, and than a little anxious and nervous But Being a little obsessive compulsive Stephen cannot just let it go And as things go missing life becomes complicated, for St...

    I d like to be the cool mom who can recommend a book to their children that they actually enjoy Therefore, I read a good number of YA and middle grade novels A little while ago, I read the Best Mistake Mystery and fell in love with it The thing I loved about The Artsy Mistake Mystery book two was the sense of familiar When I ll read this title to my son, I can predict exactly what he will say Oh, I bet this will happen next it s like the last one And that is the magic of a well crafted series for young readers It gives them a little power to figure things out yet it still offers a few new twists With this second installment, I got to know Ren e and her family a little I love the friendship that exists between Stephen and Ren e, they complement each other wonderfully Even if there is a gun in this book, there is no violence and no one gets hurt The relationships are platonic, the kids are resourceful and most importantly there are dogs Stephen is a character my son can relate to You see, I m highly allergic to dogs just like Stephen s mom and my son would love us to have a furry friend but we obviously can t have one My son is also very perspective and analytical and because he s different he has Tourette s , social situations can be a struggle for him Having a character he can re...

    I received this book from NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review Thank you Having read The Best Mistake Mystery last summer, I was thrilled to find this book available on NetGalley and I knew I had to read this sequel, too.From what I gather, only a week has passed since the events from the first book, but there aren t many tie ins or references to the previous case The characters are the same, centering on Stephen and Renee, with a couple of interesting additions, who all, at one time or another, become suspects.The mystery consists of someone stealing art of and by the people of Burlington Things get up close and personal when Stephen s favourite dog walking customer gets threatened in the process He and Renee yet again team up and find the convict, but not without making many, many mistakes along the way.I ...

    This was a really cute story It takes place in Burlington, about an hour south of Toronto I ve never read a story set there, so that was really different for me.I liked how the dog walking was so prominent in the story It shows Stephen and Renee working and earning money, which will make them well rounded kids We also see some of the challenges they face, when Stephen is reported to Animal Control.Mistakes are a big part in this book The chapters are divided between the mistakes that Stephen notices him and other people making throughout the day Sometimes he realizes something was a mistake after it s happened and it s too late to change it This story demonstrates that everyone makes mistakes, and that s okay.This was a clever mystery Many pieces o...

    The young children, Stephen and Ren e, are back as the pair of mismatched dog walkers and part time amateur detectives Ren e is the sparkly know it all, and Stephen is the worry wort, who spends his days listing all the mistakes he, and those around him make, while trying to expand his father s dog walking business Ping and Pong are the dogs that are their particular responsibility Stephen sees the dogs personalities as mirroring him and Ren e She s also yappy, like Ping, always with one thing to add or bark about I m like Pong, tall and quiet Just not quite as calm.Although Ren e is the brains of the pair, it is Stephen who seems to pay attention in class A language lesson prompts Stephen to point out to the reader, whenever he uses a simile or metaphor We sit through a class on metaphors and similes, which is as much fun as a barrel of puppies that s a simile, by the way I can feel my heart turn into a giant turnip that pushes against my ribs and throat, the vines growing out of it are going to choke me And, yes, that s a metaphor Similarly, a lesson on estimation comes in handy for working out the number of feet on fifty one smuggled turtles If I estimate the way Mrs Worsley taug...
