Maisy and the Missing Mice by Elizabeth Woodrum

Maisy Sawyer is not your average fourth grade student. She is a detective with a special skill for solving mysteries. She loves black and white mystery movies, cherry lollipops, and her dog, Reesie. When a thief known as The Black Boot steals the school’s mascots and her lollipops, Maisy sets out to solve the case. Can she help return the mice to their home in the science lab? Will she ever see her beloved lollipops again? Find out in the first book in The Maisy Files series.

This was a very quick and easy read.  I believe your third or fourth grader would love this book if they are into trying to solve mysteries.  Short chapters, no pictures for those readers that are ready to move on into chapter books and want to think they are getting into big stuff reading.  Fun to see how Maisy uncovers the mystery of the missing mice, lollipops and tooth.  They are all interwoven into one fun book kids will love to dig into.  Good book for a read aloud to younger children.  Wonderful mystery for kids to try to solve as they read along or are read to.
