Agatha: Girl of Mystery is a great new adventure series for the early chapter book crowd. In the first book the reader joins Agatha in Egypt as she tracks down a thief. In book two she’s searching for a stolen pearl in India.
Fun and over-the-top, this series is perfect for kids who have graduated from the Nate the Great or who are fans of the Cam Jansen or Capitol Mysteries series.
