It's a mystery every month from popular A to Z Mysteries author Ron Roy!
March is for Madness...
In the third book of the Calendar Mysteries - an early chapter book mystery series featuring the younger siblings of the A to Z Mysteries detectives - it's St. Patrick's Day in Green Lawn. Bradley, Brian, Nate, and Lucy dress up a leprechaun statue for the town's yearly contest. They leave it out on the porch overnight, but the next morning, it's missing! And theirs isn't the only one. All over town, leprechauns are disappearing. Who is behind the mischief? It will take four kids and the luck of the Irish to find out.
Parents, teachers, and librarians agree that these highly collectible chapter books are perfect for emerging readers and any kid who loves mysteries!
