Mysteries for Kids

Do you have what it takes?

Enthralling mysteries for kids that will test your skills as a detective. Captivating stories that will keep boys and girls busy while they learn important moral values. Written to stimulate the imaginations of elementary grades students. My mysteries are from The Old Compass E-Magazines and can vary in difficulty depending on each publication.

I just can’t believe anyone would do such a thing”.

Halloween night-- there is no night like it!
