I hope someday I will own a bookstore just like Miss Chase. (This really is a dream of mine to have a bookstore with a candy shop in the back of it. I hope it will be really popular. I KNOW it will be really popular... if I get it!) Gertrude Chandler Warner's books always make me want to finish them the second I start them. She's really good at drawing people in with her writing.I always LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVE them.

Still entertaining after all these years. The mysteries are well woven and the characters very likeable. Hadn't read one in a long while and was pleased to that I enjoyed it.

The kids get to go to New Orleans, man do they get around. Grandpa helps a lady get a bookstore and the kids help set up a book sale that involves FOOD................... and MYSTERY! This one has multiple bad doers and the kids find them all.

One of my favorite childhood series. I read over a hundred of them. The first 50 or so were in order; after that I read whatever book I could get my hands on :)

The Aldens help one of their friends prepare a new bookstore for its opening but someone is thinking otherwise and they sabotage the library.

I recommend this book to all ages.
