"In their latest adventure, enterprising 9-year-olds Anna and Suzanne tackle dictatorship (parental veto on removing the walls separating their homes), animal disappearances (cats and the vicar's prized koi), clutter (Dad's) and hoarding (the Cat Lady's).... As usual, the text is enhanced by dictionary definitions--AWOL, abduct, interrogate, stakeout--lists, diagrams and, especially, Shaw's inspired, ironic illustrations. Davies is adept at portraying the gulf between adults' stated beliefs and their behavior, and mixed motives guide everyone's actions.... The subtle pathos that underlies the lighthearted humor throughout this series is prominent here; the astringent, sobering ending leaves readers with questions to ponder." --"Kirkus Reviews, "April 1, 2012
