Just as The Lemonade War, which sold more than 260,000 copies, put business into the
hands of Evan and his younger sister, Jessie, this equally exciting follow-up puts the
law into their hands. Using the rules of our legal system as a guide, they turn the playground
into a courtroom and put Scott Spencer, alleged thief, on trial, with fourthgraders
serving as judge and jury.

""The realistic depiction of the children’s emotions and ways of expressing them will resonate with readers. Great for discussion, this involving and, at times, riveting chapter book has something to say and a deceptively simple way of saying it.""—Booklist, starred review
""Short chapters, realistic dialogue and social dynamics, humor, and suspense will keep even reluctant readers turning pages to the satisfying conclusion.""—School Library Journal
