    1. Summary: Franklin Elementary hosts an Olympics game every year. This year isn’t like every other year. This year someone is trying to destroy the games by sending threatening notes and doing things to manipulate the events. But classmates Max, Alice, Nico and the twins Luke and Kat aren’t going to let that happen. They band together to try and find out who’s doing this and put an end to it. Working as tiny detectives, they gather finger prints and collect clues to figure out who is behind [...]

    2. I’m not sure I really need more mysteries in my chapter book collection, but I do need more sports themed books. I was also happy to see that two of the children pictured on the front of the book are not white. As far as I can remember their ethnicity isn’t commented on (I really don’t remember if their skin color or hair were mentioned) so it was a choice by the illustrator to make them non-white.This book falls into that odd space where the diversity of the kids isn’t really commented [...]

    3. Five good friends, each of whom has his/her own special talent or interest, are excited about the school Olympics competition. But they quickly realize that someone is sabotaging several of the different events. Although they don't end up winning the competitions in which they expected to excel, they receive a much better reward, thus, giving birth to the MVP Club. This title is the first in this series, which promises to appeal to sports fanatics and anyone who enjoys mysteries. I liked all the [...]

    4. Five friends, pictured at the beginning, are athletic and involved in many of their elementary school's activities. They all are looking forward to the school Olympics field day. When the principal gets an anonymous note advising him to cancel the Olympics, the friends decide to investigate to find out who is trying to ruin the event. They all want to play and win! With pleasing and numerous black and white illustrations, fast pacing and lots of sports action, this is a good early chapter book [...]

    5. Solid if unspectacular mystery featuring some sports action. I had hoped that this series would be a bit more sports-oriented but solving the mystery really takes center stage. A bit predictable and formulaic but kids at this level who are into mysteries would enjoy it.

    6. Unfortunately, too young. I am always looking for more sports books, and if this were about football or basketball I might have bought it. It's more about field day, and has a mystery as well. Just don't see if working well.

    7. Looks to be a fun new transitional chapter book series. Looking forward to more. 5 friends are enjoying the school's Olympic games, but someone is out sabotaging them. Part mystery, part sports book, this series will be great for readers who are ready for chapters but need a shorter length.

    8. Themes are appealing, but it's a stock story.Early chapter book readers interested in sports will enjoy it.

    9. Max, Nico and Kat are excited for their annual school olympics. During practice one day, they find a suspicious notemeone plans to ruin their school-wide event. They notify the teachers who make sure a police officer is on stand by during the events. When the big day finally arrives, strange things begin to happen. Everyone slips on the grass from spilled oil during the relay race and they discover the tug-of-war rope has been tampered with. The three friends play detectives and put clues togeth [...]
