Mysteries, sleuthing and solving crimes are top choices for reading fun, regardless of what age you are! Young readers are spoiled for choice with new mysteries to solve, sleuths to meet and clues to figure out. The stories highlighted below are all fantastically written, drawing the reader into each mystery and problem, begging for help as the clues begin to fall into place. It is hard, even as a adult, to let the story unfold without a few guesses as to “whodunit”.

I am a primary school teacher, turned librarian. Now I have the title Reading Advocate for ASSET Education Trust, based in Suffolk.
I read constantly and have more books than bookshelves, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
I celebrate reading every day at work and at home with my two children, aged 11 and 9.
I sit on the National Executive Committee for the Federation of Children’s Book Groups and run an OU/UKLA Teachers as Readers group!
