Third grader Judy Moody loves reading Nancy Drew novels and has decided she wants to be a detective just like Nancy. She puts together her detective kit, and even includes an emergency tube of lipstick in case she needs to write an “S.O.S.” on a window or mirror. With her friends and her brother Stink she forms a detective agency, calls herself Judy Drewdy, and goes looking for mysteries. She discovers who took the candy and finds her teacher’s missing glasses. When a police officer comes to her school and his police puppy Mr. Chips goes missing, Judy finds herself with a real case to solve.
This case isn’t as easy to solve as her first two, but with a little Nancy Drew ingenuity, she reunites Mr. Chips with his owner. Fans of Judy Moody will enjoy this next entry in the series and those familiar with the Nancy Drew mysteries will take pleasure in the many references to particular stories and Judy’s use of some of Nancy’s phrases.
