The Birthday Book Club Snatching by Anne Burack Sayre is an imaginative story that teaches children honesty is always the best policy even when a lie provides an easy way out.
Melinda and her little brother Simon are students at Spring Valley School. Simon struggles with making friends and soon finds his classmates accusing him of stealing the Birthday Book Club books from the library. Melinda is determined to clear Simon's name and decides she must solve the mystery of the missing books. Simon, who often daydreams about historical events, isn't too excited to help Melinda. Coerced by his sister, Simon reluctantly agrees. As the story unfolds Melinda does solve the mystery, but along the way Simon also finds a friend. Now, the children must decide if they should tell what they know about the books or protect Simon's new friend.
The Birthday Book Club Snatching sets an excellent example of the importance of fun, friendship, family, and most importantly honesty.
