Praise & Recognition

A compelling “urban bush” adventure that offers light and reconciliation to dark truths.

The Kirkus Reviews
Missing Auntie is a good read, with an emotional punch, and I can hardly wait for the Mighty Muskrats to take their next case. Jean Mendoza, American Indians in Children's literature (AICL)
Delivered a surprising end to the story, one that left me envious of the close family ties Chickadee and the boys enjoy. The Montreal Gazette

The Case of the Missing Auntie is a well-told mystery that deals with important topics at a middle-grade level. It is highly recommended for school and public libraries.
