The book is a compilation of multiple crime riddles. It was most likely published in mid 90s to early 2000s. I’m pretty sure it was a dark purple color and I vaguely remember a magnifying glass on the cover. Oh, and it also contained one mystery involving a murder around a maypole.
This was purchased in the 1980s but probably has an older pub date. I remember a yellow cover with drawings. The family found a series of clues in their (new?) house and followed them to find a treasure. That’s all I remember! It might have been a new house or a summer house.
Seeking a children’s book from the 80s. Possibly a tombstone on the cover. A mystery. Her parents leave her at home alone. She solves the mystery by reaching into a coffin and finding something. She is wet and muddy.
In the 90s my class read a book about murder mystery. Maybe just a mystery. I think his uncle was killed but not really. I want to say he had an uncle Sam or he was born on Fourth of July. He went to a hotel and questions everyone everything. It was my first mystery book.
A pre teen girl moves to a new town and, as a way of meeting people, takes a Tarot reading class. There is an older girl, possibly named Maya, that befriends the protagonist. Some kind of mystery takes place, maybe the brother of the protagonist is falsely accused? I feel like most of the action happens around the little shop where the Tarot classes happen.
I’m looking for a short story, that I believe was in a magazine, in the 80s. I read it a ton when I was a kid and that would have been the time period. I remember it involves a hurricane or a terrible storm, a weeping willow tree, and I think there may have been a kidnapping or some type of robbery.
I don’t know the title of the book, that’s what I am seeking. It is a series book (Bobbsey Twins? Nancy Drew?) and the mystery involves the theft? Copying? of unique designs a jewelry maker obtains by capturing individual snowflakes on a pane of cold glass.
I think the setting is a winter lodge of some sort where the sleuths are vacationing.
A series, turn of the century? I'm looking for a YA or children's mystery book I read in the 1990s, though I'm not entirely sure that's when it was published. It was from a series, and this particular book was about a wealthy girl who solved a mystery while on vacation in Europe. It may have taken place around the turn of the century? It wasn't a popular series and the book itself was thin; I think I probably got it at Zany Brainy (if that's of any relevance). The cover was hand drawn, I think featuring the protagonist in a garden of some sort? Hoping someone remembers this!
