Reviewed by Jessyca Garcia for Readers' Favorite

The Mystery of the Lost Uniforms by Jerome Jones is a short mystery story for children. When the high school team’s uniforms go missing, kid detectives Abby and Tommy are on the case. Together they promise to find the uniforms before game day.

The first thing I noticed about The Mystery of the Lost Uniforms is that Abby and Tommy are very independent, responsible children. Not only do they eat healthily but they are careful thinkers. They study the information they have on the case and figure out the best way to proceed. The case itself was a good mystery but I wished that Abby and Tommy did not solve it so fast. I would like to see more investigating skills from them in Jerome Jones’ next book in the series.

The illustrations are bright and colorful and I liked that Abby and Tommy are shown wearing their bicycle helmets and being safe. I love the idea of a mystery series for children. I grew up reading Nancy Drew and would like my daughter to start reading mysteries as soon as she can. This would be a good series for her because it fits in her age range.

The Mystery of the Lost Uniforms is the second book in Jones’ mystery series. The first book in the series is The Mystery of the Lost Recipe. I have yet to read it but would like to with my child. I hope to see more books in this series soon.
