    4. My kids loved Wallace and Grace and immediately became detectives after reading this story. This series by Heather Alexander will be a great addition to the early readers group as they transition to reading independently. The large print and colorful illustrations drew the reader in and made it easy for them to read and enjoy. Wallace and Grace will certainly be a series I encourage young readers to get their hands on!

    5. Simple language with plenty of color pictures, the occasional harder words are made clear from the context and the pictures. A simple, gentle, slightly spooky mystery (the "ghost" ends up being a mama cat bringing a sheet from the clothesline to make a bed for her kittens), so this is good for grades 1-2

    6. I read this with my 4 year old son and it was a fun early chapter book full of colorful pictures on every page and some new vocabulary. It was fun to have the story be a mystery and to have him learn how to investigate and look for clues. It's a very easy mystery to solve, but I think it was just at the right level for him.

    7. A great gift for young detectives, this easy-to-read chapter book lets early elementary readers help solve the case. Rabbit has seen a ghost in the garden. Or has he? The careful logic of Wallace and Grace's investigation helps young detectives sharpen critical thinking skills and potrays good friends using their strengths to help each other. Reviewer #3

    12. Great beginning chapter book. Love the introduction of bigger vocabulary words with their meanings following.

    13. Review copy provided by NetGalleyThis is a cute, new detective series about two owls who solve cases with the same panache as Nate the Great. It's an early reader style text, nicely illustrated, with simple friendly mysteries to solve. In this one, a rabbit believes that the garden that he frequents is haunted. With some simple deductive work on the part of Wallace and Grace, they soon discover that his fears are nothing more than that, and they make some new friends along the way. The story is [...]

    14. Wallace and Grace are two owls that solve mysteries together. They are opposites but this helps make them a great team. They take the case of finding a ghost in the garden for Edgar, the rabbit. Although they are tracking a ghost, this is not too scary for young readers. The writing is simple and the addition of handwriting fonts to the text give it a little something special. The illustrations were brightly colored and adorable. This was a cute story that is appropriate for beginning chapter bo [...]
