One of the series in the Pack-n-go Girls series. Simple reading, but is intended for grade school age. My five year old grandson is having the series read to him a second time.

This series opens the world up to possibilities for children, and fostering friendship among different cultures.

Thank you, Janelle!

(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).

(This review may contain spoilers).

I found this book to be a really quick, easy read. I think it's a really good one for young children to read and learn about Austria.

The series is a pretty neat idea. This is the sort of book I probably would have loved as a child. The girls were easy to engage with and there was nothing really scary about the book. It was nice to see Brooke and Eva become friends.

I felt that the author

I was given an early copy of this to read for a fair review. I love the use of history and geography in this great story for young girls. The mystery is intriguing and spooky (in a fun way). The illustrations are really excellent and add to the story. That Herr Mueller is one creepy dude! I can see third grade girls eating this up.

I love that these books really take kids on a travel adventure--the reader can see the area, smell the aromas, taste the food. And the illustrations are incredible. The fact that this series is a mystery is a big bonus.

A very cute book of a girl who makes up a story about a ghost because she is lonely and looking for attention and a few friends her age. A nice bit of history on Austria and even a little on Colorado. I plan to give my copy to a friend who has a 10 year old daughter.

Janelle Diller has always had a passion for writing. Early on, she polished her writing skills by passing notes to her friends instead of paying attention in math class. Her resulting time in detention gave her lots of time to write more notes. As a young child, she wouldn’t leave home without a pad and pencil just in case her novel hit her and she had to scribble it down quickly. Sadly, she event ...more
