"The Crazy Christmas Angel Mystery" by Beverly Lewis

{Merry CHRISTmas everyone! Every Monday, Wednesday & Friday in honor of our Savior’s birth there’ll be a new Christmas book review! With a couple giveaways sprinkled in, it’s going to be so much fun! Let’s start!}
About this book:

  “It's almost Christmas, and Eric Hagel is spying on the new neighbor. What's going on next door? Why is the house always flickering with candlelight? And what about the eerie flute music every morning at 6:00? When Mr. Tressler puts up a Christmas tree, Eric's eyes nearly pop out. The angel at the top comes to life! Soon, hundreds of angels are flying in the old man's house. Can Eric and the Cul-de-sac Kids solve the mystery? And who will be brave enough to take a Christmas gift to the weird house at the end of Blossom Hill Lane?

Series: This is book #3 in the “Cul-de-sac Kids” series. {I have not read any other book in this series, but am looking forward to!}

Spiritual Content- A mention of the Bible verse that says to think about the good things {I wonder which Scripture that is… only the one this blog is based on. ;) }; The Kids talk about the first Christmas being a true mystery; The Kids think they saw Angels with Mr. Tressler, which leads to a couple discussions about Angels & the Christmas Play their Church is doing.

Negative Content- Jason likes scary mysteries & says so, when asked if they give him bad dreams he replies “Sometimes, But if I pray before I go to bed, it’s better.” {To which the Scripture above is mentioned.}  

Sexual Content- {This really isn’t Sexual, but I don’t know where else to put it- Dunkum is going to be Joseph in their Church’s Christmas play and when asked who Mary is, he replies the Abby is and he cheeks turn red.}

-Eric Hagel, age 8
                                                        80-ish pages (with 6 illustrations/pictures)

Pre Teens-

New Teens- 
(and a half)

Early High School Teens-

Older High School Teens- 

My personal Rating- 

{ Ratings are lowered as the girl gets older because of the simple plot & mystery. }
I thought this was an adorable mystery! I read it in less than 10 minutes, but it was a really cute mystery that had me curious! I think it would be fine for girls starting to read as well! I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series! :)

See y’all on Monday with a new CHRISTmas review! Christmas is almost here! :)

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
