Description

Pick-your-own path and puzzle-packed mystery collide in the fourth book in Lauren Magaziner’s hilarious and interactive middle grade series as Las Pistas Detective Agency gets its first international case at an archaeological dig in Greece.

In this wildly entertaining and interactive adventure, YOU pick which suspects to interview, which questions to ask, and which clues to follow. You pick the path—you crack the case!

Carlos and Eliza may be going on separate paths, but their end goal is the same—keep the booby traps from taking their detective agency out! But with tricky puzzles and dozens of impossible choices, they need your help! Can you help Carlos and his friend find the lost treasure . . . and can you protect it from the culprit trying to steal it?

Can you help Carlos and his friends unravel the mystery before it’s too late? Or will it be case closed?

Middle grade readers will enjoy all four books in this favorite series: Mystery in the Mansion (#1), Stolen from the Studio (#2), Haunting at the Hotel (#3), and Danger on the Dig (#4)!



Praise For Case Closed #4: Danger on the Dig

PRAISE FOR BOOK 1 IN THE CASE CLOSED SERIES: “The ‘choose your own adventure’ format adds a fun twist, offering readers different options, like whom to interview, what to examine, and which clues to follow. An entertaining romp that will appeal to fans of humorous mysteries.” — School Library Journal

"The characters are real kids dealing with real worries. Carlos is so concerned about money that he takes on the near-impossible task of solving a case for his mother, but it’s this concern that makes him endearing. The various options mean the story takes on a new flavor with every reading. The puzzles are based in learning, so readers work to solve each clue before moving on to the next. Magaziner blends the fun of interactive stories with a suspenseful mystery and delightful characters." — Booklist

PRAISE FOR LAUREN MAGAZINER: “Humorous and engaging.” — ALA Booklist

“Readers will banish themselves from the ordinary world to finish this book in a flash.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“The kids’ slowly forming friendship has real grace and authenticity." — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Hilarious, light-hearted debut would be a great read-aloud for middle grade classrooms.” — Library Media Connection
