This book is very interesting, I read it at school. The main idea is that Becky got blamed for stealing 5 books for the town library. They thought it was her because she wanted to get a book for her brother, but had to wait until the next day. Becky claimed that she was innocent and had nothing to do with the mystery. But they didn't believe her. So, Becky and Toby were planning to show everyone that she was innocent. The children got all of the books that were stolen because they had copies of them in the library, and then they each read the books. They figured out that all of them had something in comomon except for one. Through the Looking Glass. Read the end of the book to see what happens! :)
