The Mysterious Dozen

Next Friday, my 4th and 5th graders will participate in a grade-wide Library Quiz Show: Do You Know Books?!

This year, I picked twelve books for the children to read and enjoy and many of them have signed up to participate.  These are all mysteries and thus I named this year’s Quiz Show “The Mysterious Dozen Edition.”

Here’s the list of titles:

  • Wolf Rider by Avi
  • The Sisters Grimm: Once Upon a Crime by Michael Buckley
  • The Face on the Milk Carton by Caroline B. Cooney
  • Last Shot: A Final Four Mystery by John Feinstein
  • Running Out of Time by Maragret Haddix
  • Flush by Carl Hiaasen
  • The Ghost in the Tokaido Inn by Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler
  • Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz
  • Regarding the Fountain: A Tale in Letters, of Liars and Leaks by Kate Klise
  • Kiki Strike: Inside the Shadow City by Kirsten Miller
  • Holes by Louis Sachar
  • A Series of Unfortunate Events: A Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket

I am re-reading Holes and just finished re-reading The Bad Beginning and The Face on the Milk Carton. SO much fun had I!  Will write another post on these re-reading experiences.
