Who Stole the Wizard of Oz? P.

INFO: Avi. Who Stole The Wizard of Oz? P. 1981.

DESC: Avi’s Who Stole The Wizard of Oz is a genuine mystery – and a literary mystery, at that. When Becky is framed by the usually-quite-nice local librarian in the thief of some very rare original-copy children’s books, she and her brother Toby decide to clear their names by taking investigation into their own hands. Avi’s book “keeps secrets” from its readers, and binds us strongly to the perspectives of Becky and Toby (our narrator), which makes for fascinating, well-paced and un-put-down-able reading as the action develops! Kids ask about this one in the halls.
