Case of the Counterfeit Criminals

Case of the Counterfeit Criminals

$16.99
More Info
This "winner" (School Library Journal) of a history-mystery-science series continues as the Wollstonecraft Detectives--Ada Byron Lovelace and Mary Shelley--take on a case from the celebrated dinosaur bone hunter, Mary Anning.

The Wollstonecraft Girls embark on their most important case yet--the famed dinosaur fossil hunter Mary Anning is being blackmailed. Her precious dog has been snatched and the kidnappers are demanding that Miss Anning authenticate some fake dinosaur bones up for auction at the British Museum in order to get him back. Ada and Mary have just three days to track down the fossil fakers, find the dog, and save the integrity of science!

The game is truly afoot in this quirky caper involving blood-sucking leeches, an asthmatic pug, smoke bombs, secret elevators, diabolical disguises, and wicked word-play.

More Info
Now in paperback, a second comic case to test the brains and bravery of the intrepid Wollstonecraft detectives--Ada Bryon Lovelace and Mary Shelley.

The Wollstonecraft Detective Agency was supposed to be a secret constabulary, but after the success of their first case, all of London knows that Lady Ada and Mary are the girls to go to if you have a problem.

Their latest case is a puzzler indeed: A dead father, a missing will, an escaped lunatic, and a hasty engagement. How does it all connect? With the help (and sometimes hindrance) of their sisters Jane and Allegra, these girls break codes, break a girl out of the hospital, and break up a very bad betrothal.

Case of the Perilous Palace (the Wollstonecraft Detective Agency, Book 4)

$16.99
More Info
The history-mystery-science series continues as the Wollstonecraft Detectives--Ada Byron Lovelace and Mary Shelley--take on a case by royal request.

Ada's imperious grandmother has absolutely shut the Wollstonecraft Detective Agency down--until they get a case from a princess, that is.

The princess Alexandrina Victoria, age 9 (who will grow up to be Queeen Victoria), is the most closely watched girl in England. She is never alone. Every morsel she eats is catalogued. Every visitor overseen. Every move noted down. She has but one thing of her own--a sketchbook she uses as a secret diary, where she records her private thoughts in code. But now, somehow, that sketchbook has disappeared.

And so the princess enlists Ada and Mary to figure out what has happened to the sketchbook without arousing the suspicions of her minders. A most clandestine case indeed! One that will involve breaking into Kensington Palace and uncovering a host of surprising royal secrets...

This funny, Christmas-time romp of a caper will delight history and mystery fans alike.

    Dave loves his cave. But what if there's a better cave out there, with greener grass and bigger rocks?

    Dave loves his cave. The inside is decorated exactly the way he likes it. There's a spot for a fire and the grass is always green. But what if there's a better cave out there, with greener grass and bigger rocks? Dave needs to find out for himself. But it turns out that good caves are hard to find--they're either too noisy, or too spare, or too crowded, until he finds one in particular that looks much more promising. The rocks are big, and the grass is greener than any he's ever seen . . . but why does it look so familiar? This humorous romp from celebrated author-illustrator Frann Preston-Gannon reminds readers that sometimes there's no place like home.

    In this funny follow-up to Dave's Cave, two lovable cavemen endeavor to make their rocks the very best they can -- inventing, in the process, something rather remarkable.

    Dave loves his rock. Jon loves his rock, too. The two buddies compete over whose rock is biggest, fastest, prettiest, and tallest. When they discover that granite has so much more potential than its natural state, the two friends begin to chisel new shapes, tossing and playing games with their now-rounded rocks. But their woodland friends have other (genius) ideas for how to use these new shapes -- as circles with holes in the middle. Anyone up for a ride?

    Boys don't keep diaries--or do they?

    The launch of an exciting and innovatively illustrated new series narrated by an unforgettable kid every family can relate to

    It's a new school year, and Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into middle school, where undersized weaklings share the hallways with kids who are taller, meaner, and already shaving. The hazards of growing up before you're ready are uniquely revealed through words and drawings as Greg records them in his diary.

    In book one of this debut series, Greg is happy to have Rowley, his sidekick, along for the ride. But when Rowley's star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend's newfound popularity to his own advantage, kicking off a chain of events that will test their friendship in hilarious fashion.

    Author/illustrator Jeff Kinney recalls the growing pains of school life and introduces a new kind of hero who epitomizes the challenges of being a kid. As Greg says in his diary, "Just don't expect me to be all 'Dear Diary' this and 'Dear Diary' that." Luckily for us, what Greg Heffley says he won't do and what he actually does are two very different things.

    Since its launch in May 2004 on Funbrain.com, the Web version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid has been viewed by 20 million unique online readers. This year, it is averaging 70,000 readers a day. F&P level: T
