Love a good mystery? Give these a try. Books are suggested for Sixth Grade, but remember that each reader is different and might find something interesting at another level.
After her mother disappears, Enola Holmes, younger sister of Sherlock, journeys in disguise to London and finds herself involved in the kidnapping of a marquess, as she tries to find her mother and evade the efforts of her brother to track her down.
Sometimes detectives get the glory of being the crime solvers, but the true heroes are the scientists who give them the information they need to do their job. Forensic pathologists are experts in determining a person's cause of death. This unique book is part narrative and part science text, explaining how pathologists use their knowledge of the human body to help solve mysteries. Readers will learn about the different aspects of this fascinating job while trailing a pathologist working on an exciting case. The clever and inviting design includes crime-scene photographs and Solve It! quiz boxes.
When Marzana's parents are recruited to solve an odd crime, she assembles her own team, including a ghost, to investigate the kidnapping.
Now in Paris with her parents who are filming their TV show about the world's haunted cities, Cassidy Blake (who can see ghosts) and her friend Jacob (who is a ghost) are alert for trouble, especially when the filming takes them into the underground Catacombs, the empire of the dead, where Cassidy accidentally awakens a powerful poltergeist spirit--one whose mystery she must solve before his power in unleashed on the whole city.
