Overview

Do some people think you're too young to be a detective? Ignore them, and join junior detectives Greg Rydell and Carrie Ingram as they bust crimes and collar criminals right in their own neighborhood. These kid sleuths show you whodunit and howtheydidit. As you read the facts of the case in each mystery story, just as you get to the most exciting part you're invited to help solve it! The fun begins as you, Carrie, and Greg go back over the clues, discover the crucial facts, and put them together to point to the culprit. Along the way you get tips from a guide called The Crime Solver's Handbook, which Carrie borrowed from her dad, who's a cop. You learn how to take fingerprints, analyze blood spatters, make invisible ink, tail suspects, and lots more. Armed with all this know-how, you'll catch a jewel thief, stop con artists who steal from the elderly, find out who's been terrorizing the kids at camp, and even solve an actual murder. Hints and solutions are available to keep you on the trail as a detective-in-training. Sterling 96 pages, 25 b/w illus., 5 3/8 x 8 1/4.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debra Briatico
Young mystery lovers will enjoy this challenging book which invites them to help kid sleuths Carrie and Greg solve a series of mysteries. When each mystery story reaches the most important part (the solution), the authors suddenly stop the story and invite readers to join the detective squad as they review the clues, investigate the crime, and solve the mystery. The cases introduced in this book involve catching a thief, breaking up a con game, finding a lost treasure, and solving an actual murder.
