My book, "The Mystery of the Bamboo Bird," was filled with thrill and excitement! "The Mystery of the Bamboo Bird," written by Carolyn Keene, is about three girls named Louis, Jean, and Malee. Louis and Jean are sisters, so everyone call them the Danas since that is their last name. Malee is their friend who is missing. This all started when Starhurst, their school, caught on fire during the night. Everybody was searching for her and when they got to her dorm room, she and her Bamboo Bird were m...
I have read Nancy Drews, Judy Bolton, etc. I did not enjoy this book. It got somewhat better once they arrived in Thailand. However there are a number of features of this book that I dont like:(1) The fact that every policeman drops everything and runs over and believes them. Is this because they are wealthy white women in the 50s? I could understand with Nancy as her father is a lawyer in that community. (2) The token adversaries at the school. Ho Hum. (3) Aunt Harriet.

Very good story.
It was good.It is like Nancy Drew. If you like mystery books,you should read this.

Malee's family is absurdly rich, which is justifiable enou...
I had decided to read this book to remember what I read years ago.I really enjoyed the book, the author did well to educate the reader on all kinds of things in Thai culture. There are great lessons and messages that kids can learn from this book. I thought it was a nice dive into the mind of a child again.
Really enjoying the reading of these books from my younger years.
It’s a good book to read aloud to kids but I don’t recommend it to adults.
An ok mystery. For sure a lot of geography and history lesson.
