Calling All Cars!


Calling All Cars!
By Sonia Sander
Scholastic Inc., c2010. 31 pages. Easy Reader.

Three crooks rob the Lego City bank and make off with the money. A concerned citizen calls the police and they look for clues and watch the surveillance cameras. After asking witnesses, they put the call out for a red van, and an officer spots it. A chase ensues, including squad cars, motorcycles, and a helicopter. They eventually catch and arrest the crooks, find the money, and return it to the bank. Case closed! Perfect for new reluctant readers. Very few sentences, and lots of action and bright colors. I especially enjoyed the Lego people, scenery, and vehicles. More Lego City Adventures books are on order!
