This book is a tribute to the Nancy Drew, Hardy Boy, etc. mysteries that I grew up reading as a child – I remember my parents taking me to the public library weekly to check out books – I was blessed to be able to take my two sons to the same library when they were in grade school!
I also wrote The Mysterious Icicle due to requests from parents that I create a suspenseful story for older children!
