Middle Grade Mysteries for Your Junior Detective

“Curiouser and curiouser” cried one literary Alice many years ago now. And some 140 years later, another Alice—that’s me—was oh so curiously digging through her older sister’s dresser drawers, searching in between the pages of books, looking in the pockets of jeans and jackets. She was sleuthing, searching for secrets and mysteries. Why? Because she didn’t have enough mysteries to read, so she was creating her own. So, if you’re finding yourself with a similarly curious—or, one might say, nosy—child on your hands, distract them with these mystery-filled detective stories. (In case you’re wondering, when the older sister found out she was being spied on, she was not happy with Detective Alice).
