The Begonia House keeps its secrets. Everyone knows that. Everyone that is, except for clever eleven-year-old Fairday Morrow, whose family has just moved in. Being the Senior Investigator in the Detective Mystery Squad, more commonly known as the DMS, she’s ready to uncover the mysteries hidden within the strange manor. As the investigation gears up and the pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place, the DMS enters into a world where anything is possible, and the danger is most definitely real. Follow along with Fairday and her friends, as “spooky” meets “lovely” in this twisting tale of dark secrets and hidden pasts. Read/ listen to the first seven chapters onlineRead the reviews. 

The Fairy Tale Detectives begins with two sisters, Sabrina and Daphne, moving in with their long, lost grandmother, Relda Grimm. Their grandmother has always been a bit of a mystery to them and they aren’t moving in with her under the best of terms. Their parents are missing and now Sabrina and Daphne are in upstate New York eating green meatballs in a strange home. When the girls find out they are the descendants of the Brothers Grimm everything is seen in a new light... read more...

What Fairday's Blog! is all about...

Fairday's Riddles are posted on Mondays- they can be written about anything, and everything, all at the same time : )

Lizzy's Book Reviews are posted on Wednesdays. Lizzy has read just about every middle grade novel out there, and she loves to share her thoughts and, of course, her opinions.

The Top of the Heap is a post we put up on Thursdays. We thought it would be fun once a week to put up two things that we appreciate and have been thinking about during the week. I enjoy doing this post because I love the google hunt for the perfect image to accompany the topic of discussion.

Margo's Musings Fridays belong to Margo, Fairday's little sister. This post focuses on reviewing local children's book authors, which we follow up with an Author Interview.

The DMS Wants to Know was a post we came up with for Saturdays because when we get together to hang out on the weekend, we always chat about different situations and ideas that are floating around in our brains and we like to listen to what other people think about them- some of the comments we've gotten have been absolutely fascinating! We'd love to hear yours!

    That's the kind of question I have a new answer to every week, so you're just getting the current one. I hope that's okay. ;-)

    Right now, I'd really love to jump into The Baby-sitters Club books. I'd like to be a baby-sitter in the 80s. LOL! But yes, I'm kind of serious! =)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    1. I LOVED those books when I was growing up. My friend and I actually created our own Babysitters Club because of that series :)

    2. Enbrethiliel and DC- We love Ann M. Martin (the author of The Babystitters Club) and we were thrilled to have the chance to interview her a month or so ago. She even mentions who her favorite babysitter is. You can find the interview under Author Interviews. :)

    It's not very original, but I have to say Harry Potter! I'm a huge fan. But alternatively I'd love to jump into The Neverending Story, Atreyu was my childhood hero and I still cry during some scenes in the movie. :)

  20. Children's story I'd want to leap into, hmmm. From the Mixed-Up files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. I always thought the idea of living secretly in a museum was awesome. It's still one of my favorite books.
