#7 - MG fantasy humor, but the writing feels unpolished, and the query has typos. That's not a deal-breaker, but it's indicative. Pass.

#6 - YA magical realism. The query letter reads as almost too quirky for words, with every character's name seeming to mean something. Pass.

#4 - MG mystery. I love a good Nancy Drew story, and the pages have a strong voice, so this is a request! (1st 5 chapters & synopsis)
