Frankie’s a black and white cat; Mindy’s a three colored Australian Shepherd and Jagger is a raccoon. Best friends, they belong to everyone in the suburban neighborhood of Blue Hills and to no one. The threesome scavenges their meals from various members of the community and pays their dues by keeping the neighborhood safe. They were trolling the neighborhood one night when they stumbled upon a lost baby sea turtle. It’s the cockroach noises that attract the trio. The trio decides they must help the sea turtle, whom they name Shelly, find her way home. It becomes a nightly adventure, but in the process, they are able to sort out an eco-problem as well and eradicate a threat to the sea turtles’ nesting grounds.
Dawn Wynne’s early chapter novel, Midnight Mission: An Eco Avengers Mystery, presents three unlikely animal friends who are avid detectives. As the three main characters solve their mystery, they share a rapport of amusing dialogue which will definitely appeal to young readers as it ‘speaks their language’. The characters are well developed for this age of reading level and quirky in their own unique ways. The plot develops with excitement and humor as the threesome solves the mystery and helps the sea turtle find her way home. There is also an interesting addition to this story in the facts shared subtly within the story (and in more detail at the end) about sea turtles and how to protect them. A grand, fun adventure with lessons to learn.
