“Michelle Mulder has a delightful writing style with a humorous voice, immediately letting you get to know Frida’s personality. The humor sets up a lighthearted tone while also striking balance in the story which focuses on the concept of family .… A great foray into a mystery for children, Up for Grabs blends a lighthearted tone and charming humor with family history, loss, and the concept of home.”
– Readers’ Favorite

“Michelle Mulder has created a fun mystery that readers will be quickly turning the pages to find out the answers. Scattered with interesting art facts and beautiful scenery from the Canadian west coast, Mulder shares some of the history of Victoria, British Columbia, through local art history and twentieth-century photography.”
– CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“Michelle Mulder has written a fun and very compelling story that young readers will relate to on many levels. It is filled with mystery and excitement and showcases problems kids of Frida’s age face with fractured families, an all-too-common occurrence. The writing is excellent and the dialogue is snappy and true to the ages of the characters. It’s nice to see a good, platonic friendship between a boy and girl this age. Don’t miss this sweet story.”
– Seattle Book Review

“A satisfying mystery that explores friendship and family, art and home.”
– Canadian Children’s Book News Magazine
