Overview

It's a mystery every month from popular A to Z Mysteries author Ron Roy!

August is for Acrobat...

In the eigth book of the Calendar Mysteries - an early chapter book mystery series featuring the younger siblings of the A to Z Mysteries detectives - something special is coming to Green Lawn - a traveling circus! But when the performers arrive, they need help. Their show is a mess, and Bradley, Brian, Nate, and Lucy are happy to chip in. They fix up the equipment and find dazzling new acts, but what the show needs most is an acrobat. No one in town is brave enough to go up on the high trapeze, except for one mysterious masked person. If the kids could find out who it is, this might be the best circus ever - but it seems as if this acrobat doesn't want to be found!

Parents, teachers, and librarians agree that these highly collectible chapter books are perfect for emerging readers and any kid who loves mysteries!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bonita Herold
This eighth book in the "Calendar Mysteries" series features Bradley, Brian, Nate, and Lucy, the younger siblings of the "A to Z Mysteries" detectives. They manage to sell $200 worth of tickets in advance of the circus coming to town. But when they actually see what—and who—the circus consists of, they are worried that they have been duped. Two cages previously housing a large snake and a lion remain empty, and one outrageously bad acrobat do not make for a successful circus! But what about the amazing acrobat? Who is she or he? While the kids work to make it the best circus ever, the only thing missing is the acrobat. Will they find her or him in time? They scramble around to find the mysterious acrobat because the show must go on. This "Stepping Stone Book" provides just enough intrigue for an emerging reader to appreciate. The series is sure to be a favorite among kids and parents everywhere! Reviewer: Bonita Herold
