EL CASO DE LA PLUMA PERDIDA/THE CASE OF THE PEN GONE MISSING

by | Read by Brian Amador

Spanish Audio Ages 8+ • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 2010

Mickey Rangel no es como cualquier otro estudiante del quinto grado; es un detective certificado por el Internet y ¡tiene una placa oficial! En este libro, el primero de una serie, una chica bonita pide la ayuda de Mickey, porque le han acosado de robar una pluma única de otro alumno. Mickey consiente en ayudarle a probar su inocencia del crimen, aunque ella es la novia del gran peleón de la escuela, Bucho. René Saldaña, Jr. ha escrito un mini-misterio entretenido para los lectores del nivel intermedio, mientras Brian Amador lo lee con un sentido de humor adolescente y un cinismo, que recuerda a los detectives Sam Spade y Philip Marlowe. Su voz es joven y llena de una energía que se mantiene hasta el final de la historia. Gracias a la escritura de Saldaña y la actuación de Amador, Mickey se convierte en un héroe instantáneo, con quien los lectores querrán pasar más tiempo resolviendo más casos. J.A.G., trans. L.R.P.

[ENGLISH TRANSLATION]--Mickey Rangel is not just any fifth-grader; he’s a Web-licensed detective with a badge! In this book, the first of a series, Mickey is approached by a pretty girl named Toots, who has been accused of stealing a classmate’s one-of-a-kind pen. Mickey agrees to help clear Toots’s name, even though she’s the girlfriend of the school bully, Bucho. René Saldaña, Jr., has written an enjoyable mystery for intermediate readers, which Brian Amador reads with an adolescent’s sense of humor and cynicism worthy of Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe. Amador’s youthful, energetic voice keeps listeners engaged until the end of the story, which arrives too quickly. Thanks to Saldaña’s writing and Amador’s performance, Mickey becomes an instant hero with whom listeners will want to spend more time.
