Praise for Danger & Diamonds

"When two veterans such as Levy and Gerstein join forces, it’s clear the result is going to be good, and with its intriguing high-seas locale, this new mystery series doesn’t disappoint. A smart heroine, a cute boy, and a mystery that can be pretty easily solved make this right on target for a middle-grade audience. And with Caldecott Medalist Gerstein behind the expressive double-page illustrations, you can be sure the artwork is of a higher caliber than is found in most series fiction. Anchors away!" —Booklist

"Philippa's narration keeps readers guessing..." —Publishers Weekly
