Review: I loved this book, it was absolutely adorable it had a protagonist that was deaf from a deaf family too and it was written so incredibly.
Lizzie and her puppy Lucky find mysteries everywhere they go and on vacation to her grandparents and instantly find a mysterious man on the beach an ancient pirate story that was never solved and artefacts that have been stolen.
I really enjoyed solving all the fun mysteries with Lizzie and her family, I loved learning about the pirate lure and about Sign Hand Stan. It was like. A fun adventure within the mystery and I loved reading every part of it.
This book comes with incredibly stunning illustrations that I just adored so much and the little Dalmatian hearing aids that Lizzie wore were an incredible touch to match her sweet puppy. I really loved seeing all the illustrations throughout the whole book.
I also adored that you got to learn sign language throughout the book but also get given the alphabet to learn and then a little fun quiz at the back of the book to try and solve using the sign language, I adored that being included to help teach others.
This book is so creatively made, so much fun and such a fantastic mystery, I highly recommend this to anyone that enjoyed a sweet book and a great mystery to solve.
