Georgia teachers I worked with last summer turned me on to this series by Kate Klise (illustrated by Sarah Klise).

They are cleverly written mysteries made unique by telling the story without narrative texts. Klise uses a variety of other texts formats (letters, emails, lists, etc.) and graphics (maps, sketches, etc.) to reveal the story.

Dying to meet you the first in the 43 Old Cemetery Road Series is especially good for writing lessons. First it is a great mentor text to show many different formats for writing. it also tells the story of a children's author with writer's block.

Klise clever names her characters to add a little humor to the stories I. M. Grumpy is the crotchety children's author.
