" Cute and educational story about a Pipsie the nature detective. She goes on a nature scavenger hunt but also has to figure out who stole her lunch. " said.

" The illustrations are adorable! It's definitely a fun book to look at. The story is cute and manages to include information about nature while reading like a mystery. I plan to check out Pipsie, Nature Detective: The Disappearing Caterpillar as well now, since this one was so cute.Note: I received a hardcover copy of this book from the publisher through the Goodreads First Reads program. " said.

"Pipsie and her friend Alfred, a turtle, have lots of fun together, and when they go on a school field trip, they team up for a scavenger hunt. Not only must they find seven different natural wonders in their surroundings, but they need to figure out who made off with their lunch. As Alfred grows increasingly hungry, he and Pipsie find all the items on the list, but the lunch culprit is the last thing they find. I like the careful attention the two pay to details such as animal tracks and the fact that Pipsie is not squeamish or reluctant to work hard in order to complete her assigned tasks. Back matter includes additional information about the animals in the book, which might make this a good title to read before heading off on a nature hike. " said.

Pipsie goes on a nature hike with her school, and each group is given a list of seven things they are supposed to find, including something crawling, flying, and swimming. Armed with notebooks and cameras, the groups take off. Pipsie is partnered with Alfred, her talking turtle, and the other students make fun of her because turtles are slow. Alfred, however, has a scooter and is able to find many things on the list. He's also very hungry, but someone has stolen Pipsie and Alfred's lunch. Can they find all of the scavenger hunt items AND the lunch stealing culprit before Alfred starves?

Pipsie and Alfred have a good journey into the woods and find lots of good details about nature. They pick up on lots of nature clues-- they find a bird by listening to it pecking on a tree, find a porcupine quill but state that the animal is noctural so can't be the thief, and approach both of their tasks with methodical precision. The drama with the other classmates will make this book interesting even for somewhat older students, and readers who are fans of Dora the Explorer or Judy Moody and Stink will find Pipsie and her outdoor adventure interesting.

The illustrations include a lot of details on every page, and are rendered in a pleasant, pastel chalk fashion. There are "fun facts" listed at the end of the book, with information about various animals, as well as a chart of "Woodland Tracks".

I wish that Alfred Z. Turtle were not involved, and was a little disappointed that Pipsie's hiking outfit was pink and purple. Sigh. Is this 1984?

" Beautiful illustrations. My daughter loved it. " said.

" Lots going on in this mini-mystery, and the story line moves along precisely without confusion. Youngsters may enjoy using the scavenger hunt list to explore their own natural environment.Full color illustrations support the text and help give the reader clues. " said.

" This book was beautifully illustrated, and the story line was fun. my granddaughter LOVES it.. although she calls the girl "peepees" "mimi.. can we read pee pees again?" overall. makes for a good bedtime story, long enough.. but not too long.. " said.

" I won this wonderful book from Goodreads Giveaway.I absolutely love this book. The illustrations are outstanding and the story is both educational and fun. This is promised to a little girl who just celebrated her 4th birthday. " said.
