Jacqueline Davies’ The Lemonade War was praised for using subjects such as math and economics to create a “suspenseful, subtly educational plot that goes down as easily as a cool glass of lemonade in August” (Children’s Literature). The third novel in the series starring fourth-grader Evan Treski and his smarty-pants younger sister, Jessie, follows the siblings as they try to solve the mystery of who stole the New Year’s Bell from atop Lovell Hill.

Everything about this trip to Grandma’s house was different. First, because of the fire, Mrs. Treski, Evan, and Jessie had driven up to Grandma’s two days after Christmas instead of the day before, missing Christmas with Grandma entirely. Second, the fire had left a hole in the back kitchen wall big enough to drive a car through. And with Grandma in the hospital, everything felt off. Third, someone had climbed the long, slow slope of Lovell Hill to the top and had stolen the old iron bell hanging on its heavy wooden crossbeam. Who on earth would steal the New Year’s Bell? And how could Grandma, Mrs.Treski, Evan, Jessie, and their neighbors ring in the New Year without it?

Like a modern-day Beverly Cleary, Ms. Davies writes with heart, humor, and honesty about the inevitability of profound change and reveals just how well she understands the complex emotions of the children.

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Things change, and not always for the better, and in the third book in her heralded Lemonade War Series, the just published The Bell Bandit skillfully provides the requisite conflicts and suspense while developing a far deeper theme, how a family deals with changes that are not always for the good in their own lives.”
