In 1989 someone is threatening to steal the crown jewels, so the Queen of England summons Mac B. to England to protect them--and when they are stolen from a locked dungeon cell, where Mac and Holcroft, one of the warders, are supposed to be guarding them, it is up to Mac to figure out how they were stolen, and whether the thief is the descendant of an Irish soldier-of-fortune who tried to steal them in 1671, or someone else entirely.

The only zany mystery series for kids starring the Queen of England as a major character continues, and continues to be great fun. I'll probably read the next one, too.

An entertaining addition to the Mac B., Kid Spy series features a howdunit. How did the crown jewels get stolen from a locked cell with Mac B and a Beefeater locked inside guarding them? Once again, the queen and her Corgis are a key part of the story. A well-illustrated and humorous story for kids in grades 2-5. Barnett makes funny asides to reader drawing them in and making them feel included. Includes quality illustrations and short chapters that keep the action moving. Will you figure out whodunit before Mac B does?
