[ Pdf The Thief Knot: A Greenglass House Story ↠´ computation PDF ] by Kate Milford ↠´ Set within the fictional town of Nagspeake, The Thief Knot, is part mystery, part adventure A group of oddly matched kids, pit their wits against a kidnapper While not the first book in the Greenglass House series, readers can fully enjoy the story without having read the previous books I recommend them, but don t miss out on this delightful book if the others are not readily at hand.
Nagspeake itself is a town of mystery inhabitants have psuedonyms to hide their identities and possibly past tangles with the law When a local teen goes missing, the adults who have been under the radar are forced to take action As the daughter of a somewhat notorious couple, Marzana gets included in the search But she doesn t just want to I wasn t sure if I would like this one as much when I realized it was of a companion novel to the original, but I love mysteries and puzzles so it hooked me Also learning about the underground and liberty was awesome.

Fantastic new addition to the Greenglass House series I hope we get to see of Mars and her Knot in future novels Thank you, Netgalley, for the ARC.
a delightfully twisty mystery solved by a crew of kids I d like to be friends with, set in a fantastical city of secrets and wildly improbably infrastructure, with one bit that made me laugh out loud heartily the balloon and the backpack bit , and other bits that made me want to hug my own kids.
E ARC Provided by Edelweiss PlusI loved the first book, but it doesn t circulate well This seemed almost unrelated to that book, so I will pass Isn t the cover gorgeous, though I received an ARC from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review The Thief Knot is the perfect combination of Nancy Drew and Scooby Doo minus the actual Scooby Doo It perfectly balances the serious and humorous elements of the story I love that it emphasizes the importance of teamwork no one character could have solved the mystery and they relied on one another s talents and knowledge to save the day I also appreciated that the adults were not made out to be clueless, as so often happens in books for this age group I would have liked a couple short chapters or scenes to show what Nialla is doing when she has to separate from the group I did feel bad for her at the end when she had to miss out on all the action Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to teachers and librarians I had not read
Haven t read this yet BUT I AM SO READY One of my life goals is to read every book that Kate Milford writes because her world is so vivid and her characters are so relatable I m so excited to learn about Marzana and the Liberty A DRC was provided by Edelweiss for a fair and honest review.
Another puzzle box of a Greenglass book is a reason to cheer for every children s librarian Smart, literate, entertaining and the opposite of condescending, Milford continues to mine her gold strike of a series for children and their clever adults We are on the other side of Nagspeake in this tale, running after Marzana and her newly formed club of puzzle solving kid geniuses trying to find a kidnapped girl The publisher has declared The Thief Knot a stand alone novel, but there are so many references to past events in other books, so many characters who pop up and then bow out that I would strongly recommend readers tackle the other Greenglass titles And why not They re such a treat and Milford has done a terrific job with her world building Kudos for the
