Bernice Takes a Plunge is a really wonderful story by Ann Harth. This book is aimed at children between 8 and 12 years old- but really can be enjoyed by all ages- as I thoroughly enjoyed the story and I am waaay older than that. This is a delightful and original adventure- full of fun, mystery, a little drama, endearingly quirky characters, and humour- with a really interesting storyline. Bernice Peppercorn steals the show here- she is just fantabulous! A little mini sleuth with quite the imagination. She is so obsessed with mystery and crime that she tends to jump to conclusions. She has quite the reputation for ‘reporting’ crime, where there isn’t any. So, what happens when a real robbery happens in town? Will Bernice find the clues that she needs and track down the robbers? This is definitely worth the read to find out how everything plays out in the end. Supercalifragilistic!
