Review
  • Grades 2-4 While investigating suspicious late-night noises in the boardinghouse, Maisie gets knocked out, so she doesn’t see the thief, who takes a valuable mask Professor Tobin is preparing to donate to a museum. Once awake again, she collects evidence and follows clues that lead her straight to the thief—a young Amazonian boy whose family needs the mask back. As always, the Maisie mysteries provide an enjoyable Victorian romp through the logic of deductive reasoning; this fourth series installment excels by also introducing issues surrounding cultural sensitivity and repatriation of artifacts to the community of origin. -- Weisman, Kay (Reviewed 4/1/2016) (Booklist, vol 112, number 15)
  • Gr 3–5—Maisie Hitchins is not your typical young maid. While cleaning up after the residents of 31 Albion Street, she always manages to stumble upon a mystery to solve. In the latest installment of this series, Maisie tries to track down a feathered mask that was stolen from the room of famed world traveler Professor Tobin. Tobin has recently donated a large part of his collection to local museums, and the rest of his possessions are in high demand. Who could have stolen this mask, and why does it mean so much to Professor Tobin? Prolific British author Webb spins another yarn featuring her young gumshoe, and loyal readers will not be disappointed. Eagle-eyed readers will be able to guess the thief's identity early on. There's not much information given about Maisie's previous adventures, yet they aren't necessary, as this book stands on its own. --Staff (Reviewed 05/01/2016) (School Library Journal, vol 62, issue 5, p)
