The Book Bandit (A Phoebe Chen Mystery)! by Caron Pescatore

Happy Wednesday! Today on tour is a book for kids advancing in reading chapter books and who love detective stories. I'm thrilled to partner with The Children's Book Review and Caron Pescatore for the first book in what promises to be a great series! Enjoy and don't forget to enter the giveaway later in the post for a chance to win a signed copy of the book!

About the Book:

Phoebe loves anything that involves brainstorming, like jigsaw puzzles, riddles, and word searches. Her lifelong dream is to solve mysteries like her detective father—or ND, her favorite girl detective. So when a friend’s prized autographed book disappears, Phoebe immediately offers to take on the case.

Enlisting the help of her BFF, Phoebe gets to work searching for clues, interviewing witnesses, and compiling a list of suspects. But when the evidence implicates a friend, she realizes being a detective isn’t all fun and games. Phoebe must find concrete evidence before she points the finger. Can she do it, or will the book bandit get away with the dastardly deed?



A chapter book perfect for kids getting into chapter books with more words and less pictures. As someone who treasures signed copies of books I loved the plot. A signed book goes missing from a girls locker room and two detectives are on the case. The story is very well written and relatable. The book also has some nice messages about how you shouldn’t be embarrassed to love reading and read whatever book you enjoy. This is a gem of a book and I would love to read more in the series.
