    1. APRILas part of my personal reading challenges for 2017, once a month i will be revisiting a favorite book from when i was a little bitty karen and seeing if it holds up to my fond memories and determining if i can still enjoy it as an old and crotchety karenngers crossed: first things first. in answer to the question 'does this book hold up?' yes, it does. it more than holds up, in fact - i think i may have liked this one even MORE reading it as an adultby-karen's review:i like doggies and book [...]


    2. Something Queer at the Library concerns some vandalized library books, and Gwen and Jill's attempt to uncover the culpret and motive (actually not a bad subject to cover~though i wonder how many young readers would recognize the library of the late seventies~no matter.) Jill wants to enter Fletcher in All-State Dog Show and since he has never competed before she goes to the library to do some research (now there's a novel idea.) The two girls find certain pictures cut out and set out to discover [...]


    3. With a title like this I had to read it. With queer and library in the same title I was sure it would be good. It's not bad either. A nice mystery for the kids. The pictures keep the humor real light and fun. Gwen's tap, tap, taping of her braces is nice and she and Jill refer to the mysterious book-mangler as "the creep". Awesome.


    4. This is one of those books that makes me really want to rethink my rating every book I come across on without rereading it first.I'm still going to do it, understand, but I underrated this so bad. I just forgot how endearing and clever and weird it was. Though there is surprisingly little action at the library.The case involves some mutilated library reference books (the horror!) so Jill and Gwen must track down the "creep" to avoid the librarian thinking it was them that did it and prepare Fle [...]


    5. Loved the Something Queer mysteries as a grade schooler and my daughter, who is in the midst of a great mystery/detective kick, is loving them now. I love that we currently live in the service area of a public library that still has lots of weird, old, beat up, out of print books on their shelves. I think they are about to do a big purge of their collection as part of a remodel to make it more new and shiny looking, but they are going to lose a lot of great older titles like this one. Best frien [...]


    6. This is an entertaining story in the Something Queer Mysteries series by Elizabeth Levy. It's a fun hybrid between a graphic novel and a chapter book. It has lots of illustrations and short chapters and is a fairly quick read. Our girls enjoyed this book and we will look for more of the books in this series at our local library.


    7. Jill and Gwen borrow some books from the library for the dog show. But they discovered that pictures have been cut out of the books. They have to find who did it so they won't be blamed for the pictures being cut out.It was a cute and a little weird mystery book. It was fun and I think kids will like it.


    8. I had been trying to find this book for a long time because I loved reading it (and re-reading it) at the local library in Aurora when I was young. I'm glad I know the title now.





    9. This was one of my favorite books as a kid. It's a mystery that takes place in a library. That's cool! The book has the word "queer" in the title. That's even cooler!



    10. While this was a cute little mystery, the title is really off-putting. Language evolves. Now, for the content about a library, it SHOULD be a little off-putting, since the librarian is checking out books the old fashioned way, but it's not for THIS librarian at HER library.So in a way it's kind of a perfect book, with perfectly colored drawings for the time it was published (1970's). But oh to have the language updated.


    11. One in a series of books featuring Gwen, Jill and Jill's dog Fletcher. Stylistically more like a graphic novel than a novel, the mysteries in these books are all logically solved and without sugary sweetness. I read this book in second grade and used it for my art project for Books on Parade and I won! I still have my clay Llasha Apso somewhere. A fun series for young kids who aren't that keen on reading.


    12. me and my sister loved reading this book as a kid. Im so happy i found the the titlebecause the only thing i could rember was Gwen tapping her braces and it drove me nuts!trying to figure out the title and the plotesome children's book


    13. It's a pity that these children's mysteries had to be titled as they are, severely limiting their likelyhood of rerelease, because they're absolutely wonderful. Hilarious and crazy, and in my mind, far better than your Cam Jansen or your Nancy Drew.




    14. My children loved this book and it prompted us to get a Lhasa Apso mix dog who is now 16 years old.
