The Case of the Stolen Sixpence

About the Book

Twelve-year-old Maisie Hitchins lives and works at her Gran's boardinghouse. When she's not dusting or carrying tea trays, she can be found practicing her detecting skills. She dreams of becoming a great detective like the famed Gilbert Carrington. Without the pipe, of course.
    
When George, the butcher's boy, is fired for stealing coins from the till, Maisie knows he's innocent, and that she is the only one who can prove it. With her canine sidekick, Eddie, by her side, Maisie gathers the clues she needs to vindicate her friend. And by solving the mystery, Maisie discovers that sometimes even a thief can have the best of intentions.
