Children's Mystery & Detective Adventure

A Children's Mystery & Detective Adventure can be a great way to introduce your child to the world of detective stories. These stories often feature a favorite toy, stuffed animal, or candy. A child can solve the mystery and get a reward for solving it. Adding a villain to the story adds more storytelling potential. You can choose a variety of characters and themes to fit the age and stage of your child.

Daisy Wells

In Daisy Wells, Children's Mystery '& Detective Adventure,' our heroine is a self-described Sherlock Holmes. Despite her ambition to be a detective, she and her friend Hazel Wong find themselves in a bind - there are no cases to investigate. When their tutor, Hercules Feltwright, stumbles into a job at the country house of Willet Goody, Daisy is thrown into an investigation that will lead her to a hidden treasure, a gypsy seance, and the tomb of Midas Goody.

While there are several mysteries in this series, each one is unique in its own way. Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are best friends, who team up as the Junior Pinkertons and solve crimes. These girls are the perfect mix of intellect, imagination, and loyalty. However, they aren't without flaws. In addition to her brazen nature, Daisy also has a knack for solving crimes. While many characters in the series possess the same traits, Daisy is definitely more interesting.

This series is set in the 1930s and is a perfect blend of intrigue and adventure. The main characters of the series are extrovert Daisy Wells and introvert Hazel Wong. The pair's friendship has proven invaluable in the series, and they're both eager to find the truth. The story also explores the complexities of family and friendship relationships. Daisy Wells is a good role model for children in school and will grow to love these books as they mature.

Hazel Wong

In this children's mystery adventure, Hong Kong native Hazel Wong and her new school friend Daisy Wells form a secret detective society. As detectives, they solve crimes, enlisting the help of their friends and other members of the school community. But what's really going on? Who's really killing the girls? Will they ever get to solve the mystery? Will Daisy find out and save the day?

Despite their bumbling attempts to solve a murder, the children of Deepdean School are never far from a mystery. Daisy's glamorous mother is hosting a birthday tea party, and her friends and family, including her eccentric aunt Saskia and her dashing uncle Felix, are invited. They've also booked a holiday on the Orient Express. Each first-class passenger has a secret to hide. As their trip draws to a close, they're forced to confront major changes in their lives.

The book starts with a death that has not yet been solved. Hazel finds the dead body of Miss Bell, the Science Mistress. She initially believes the death was accidental, but when she and Daisy return five minutes later, the body is gone. They soon realize that the body was not discovered by the murderer, and that the killer could strike again before the girls solve the case. Aside from figuring out who killed Miss Bell, the girls must also solve the mystery before the police arrive.

Robin Stevens

In her latest children's book, Murder Most Unladylike, a young girl named Alice discovers that her nanny has committed a shocking murder. The young detective sets out to solve the crime, but she'll need a little help from a new friend. But when a mysterious letter arrives at her door, she'll need more than her keen observation skills. In order to solve this case, she'll need to work fast and find clues in the nanny's apartment.

The first book of the Deepdean series has a plot that is reminiscent of classic Golden Age mysteries, but Stevens' writing isn't entirely reminiscent of the genre. The protagonist, Hazel, is a bright, perceptive, and methodical detective who works well with Daisy. Her methods are complementary to Daisy's, making for a highly entertaining reading experience. But the book's most interesting element is its focus on the children's psyche and how they process information.

The characters are well-read and smart, and the two friends form a detective agency to solve crimes. They must solve the first case. This sharply-written debut by Stevens is the first in a new middle-grade mystery series set at a 1930s boarding school. Stevens clearly enjoys the traditions of boarding school stories, as well as the Golden Age of Crime fiction.
