Leonie Skyforce-Clarke and the Mystery of the Green Case was a cute little read that I read with my daughter who is 12 years old. My daughter liked all of the mysteries that was in it, and when we was readying together she would ask me what I thought about it. This is the first book that we read together, I liked how short it was, but it has everything for a good book.

We enjoyed the book very much.

First of all, thank you to Skyforce Publishing and NetGalley for this review copy! This review is written voluntarily by me.

This book is a nice and quite easy read for me and really suitable for any age even though it is targeted at children. The mystery itself is okay for me I really like how the author incorporates clues given to the children especially the computer and the video game. Plus, I got new knowledge on some technologies used in this story. I love how these two siblings interact with each other where Leonie is the main narrator and Lionel sometimes sassy interjections are quite a mood. I think this story is good for children's and parents’ or family’s reading (bonding) time together because this story is short, fast-paced, easy to read, and has plenty of clues.

*Heartiest gratitude to Netgalley, the author and the publishers for granting my request to read 'Leonie Skyforce-Clarke and the Mystery of the Green Case'.

It was a pleasant read. The story is mainly told from Leonie's point of view, sometimes including Lionel's opinions on his sister's comments. It also allows us to take peek into the culprit's mind. I love the brother sister duo. They remind me of Amy and Dan from The 39 Clues. Leonie is the enthusiastic, witty, cheerful one whereas Lionel is the one good with numbers and science. A lot of people don't know how to properly interpret Lionel's behaviors as he is autistic but Leonie knows her brother in her own ways and the two of them share a deep connection. They were enjoying the start of their school holidays on the beach when they discover a old green case. The discovery unlocks a series of puzzling events and Leonie grabs the opportunity to prove herself as a worthy detective like her icons Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot. Her plan doesn't excite Lionel who prefers the comfort of home so much as his sister but tags along anyway. It was thrilling to watch them find clues that belong to the twentieth century and string them together. The outcome was a bit unexpected and it brought a smile to my face. What a lovely story!

A wonderful children's mystery.  Leonie and her brother Lionel find a green case with clues in it.  They try to figure out what the items mean.  The items refer to items popular in the 1980s.  This book will also appeal to parents because they will be familiar with the items even though their children may not.  
The mystery is great for children who have to think about what each item means and where the clues lead.  It is a story for families to read together.

Thank you to #netgalley, @ElisaNolf, and @Skyforce_ClarkePublishing for a copy of this book.

We chose this book mainly for its cover but it was so good ! The younger members of the family loved the adventure and the characters and the interaction between them, I liked the retro touches and feel to it. Will be looking out for this authors other books.

What great mystery book. I know its for kids but I was just as engaged in the clues and solutions as the characters and the answer at the end of the book was just really cool. For those in there 60's who remember floppy disks and Commodore 64, you will get a kick on how they have a part in solving the mystery. I also like Leonie's brother Lionel who adds comments through the story that are just funny.
The book is an easy and fast read and is enjoyable for everyone who like Nancy Drew or the Hardy boys.

I want to thank Skyforce Publishing, Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), Members' Titles and NetGalley for copy of this fun book.
