Discovering a baby boy on her porch when she returns from school one day, Abby and the other members of the Baby-sitters Club must find out where the baby came from and to whom he belongs.
Abby and the Mystery Baby
An amazing book!
Nobody puts baby in a corner
… except the perpetrator of this mystery. And by “corner,” we mean “doorstep.”
OK, now that we have you, let’s talk about the real mystery …
DO NOT BELIEVE THEIR LIES. Who are we talking about? Shiloh Dog 123, the mysterious villain who has been haunting the reviews of this book and misguiding BSC-Mystery fans since March 2019. “An amazing book!”? More like an amazing hook that you should ignore because there’s nothing at the end of that fishing pole. Trust us, we looked.
Shiloh Dog 123 would have you believe that this book and these reviews are the trailhead at the beginning of a winding and circuitous MAZE (remember “amazing book!”??) that will drag us all ever further into confusion and eventually madness.
But, like this book, there is no real mystery here. Nonetheless, we appreciate the effort of Shiloh Dog 123 and Ellen Miles, and we encourage you to mark Shiloh Dog 123’s review as helpful, and Ellen’s book as Five Stars, as we have. (We’re not haters.)
If you follow all those directions, much as Abby followed all the non-existent clues in this non-mystery, and much like Neo followed the White Rabbit (in The Matrix), you will be The Happiest Baby on the Block.*
Oh baby, this scintillating baby (by which we mean “scintillating novel”) is great (by which we mean “scintillating"). The brain child of Ann M. Martin and Ellen Miles, this sweet little bundle of joy will have you saying "cootchie cootchie coo." And no, this isn’t Baby Talk (and it’s definitely not a come-on). It’s grownup talk. And what the grownups are saying is there is no mystery, there is no spoon, there is no rest for the wicked (by which we mean Shiloh Dog 123 and Cipher from The Matrix), and there is no book we would rather read than this baby, baby!
As Cipher says in The Matrix, “ignorance is bliss,” but you won’t be ignorant after you find out whodunnit in this one.
