Description from Publisher
In this charming series, perfect for newly independent readers, kids will be treated to simple whodunit mysteries as an utterly delightful owl duo put their heads together. In their first adventure, Wallace and Grace meet a rabbit who is sure he saw a ghost! But the clues lead them in a different direction. Something is spooking the garden . . . can Wallace and Grace solve this case? 

Quick thoughts about this series:

Wallace and Grace are nighttime detectives and in this first book in the series, they are in search of a ghost. In particular, to get rid of a ghost that their rabbit friend, Edgar, has spotted. 

Wallace and Grace demonstrate collaboration and critical thinking as they go about solving the mystery. The story is told over four chapters with large print, colorful illustrations, humor, and just enough white space to make it easier to read for young readers. A fun read for beginning sleuths. 

Check out the other books in the series. In March, Stinky Spike was released. 

Back in January, Agnes and Clarabelle made their debut. 

Look for all of these at your local indie bookstore or community library.
