This short little novella is charming. The family's nativity set has been stolen, and 12 year old Megan knows it was the teenage boy from down the street, who she has dubbed The Bum. With some clever sleuthing, the family goes on an investigation. There are walkie-talkies, impromptu snowmen, and some sneaky cookies involved to solve this mystery. Bold Megan expects some sweet detective work and some justice, but gets a beautiful Christmas lesson instead.
This story is perfect for the whole family, no matter what the age. It's a really quick read, and told in a simple, darling way. I adore it.
