#BookMail Pt2 This is another middle grade series I found on Waterstones for Sophie. I‘m trying to give her a broad range of genres to try, I remember being a 7yr old reader who found fantasy & SciFi and felt like the heavens opened on me💫✨👩🏼 a love which I still have today. #raisingreaders #proudnanna

This book was so freaking cute. The mystery was well thought out and there were a few twists I didn't see coming. It was a perfect #middlegrade #mystery for sure. The characters are so wonderfully British and the #audiobook was fantastic! A must read for mystery fans of any age! #springreads #atoz #readingchallenges

Finally signed up for #audible and this is my first pick. It's for one of my reading challenges and none of the libraries had it. Glad I decided to go with the audio version. It's so charming and the narrator is very talented. #springreads #bookchallenges #audiobooks #mystery #middlegrade
