The Bloomsberry Cucumber Festival is under way, and Lindy plans to avoid all vegetables, as usual. But then she ends up with a plateful of Granny Goose's slimy, disgusting stewed cucumbers.
And a mystery.
How did a valuable stolen locket end up buried in cucumber sludge?
Granny Goose is a wacky lady, but Lindy knows she'd never steal from anyone. So, with best friend Margaret and know-it-all Gus Kinnard, Lindy sets out to find out who's behind the frame-up.
Can the threesome work together? And can they untangle the mess of clues fast enough to save Granny Goose—and collect a hefty reward?

Sixth-grader Lindy longs to attend summer band camp with her friend Margaret, but her parents can’t afford it. She discovers a valuable locket in her stewed cucumbers, but learns that a wealthy woman’s jewels have been reported stolen and that their wacky, elderly friend, Granny Goose, is suspected. Margaret, Lindy, and their friend Gus join forces to find the culprit, clear Granny Goose’s name, and collect the reward. The trail of clues winds a bit but ends with justice for all. Unlike the many mystery narrators striving for a noirish voice even in children’s books today, Lindy’s first-person narrative sounds refreshingly innocent: her characters gasp, exclaim “gosh,” and even say “tsk, tsk.” The story’s backdrop is the Bloomsberry Cucumber Festival, a suitably down-home venue for a mystery with a decidedly old-fashioned tone and a relatively slow pace. While not for every child, this old-school children’s mystery may suit a number of today’s readers. Grades 4-6. --Carolyn Phelan
