Who solves these book stumpers?
Many people. We are most fortunate to have interested booksellers, bibliophiles, readers and librarians across the country who enjoy a good riddle, and who share their knowledge with us. As a result, more than half of these stumpers are typically solved — and when you see how obscure or faint many of these mysteries are, I think you’ll agree that’s pretty good.

Question when you say childrens books is your specialty, does this include YA (and i will use Sweet Valley High) as the level of reading. Also does it include christian YA or books? Both my sister and i have been stumped for years on different books that we read as young ppl and before we submitted a query for each book, i was hoping to know if YA from the 70s or 80s was in your wheelhouse.
Yes, we can and will post YA and/or Christian books.
does this children’s book ring a bell?
Some sort of island story. Ocean. Long boats. It ends with the evil woman rowing the boat and getting stuck in a whirlpool.
