Do you find yourself trying to decode secret messages? Investigating mysterious footprints? Stealthily trailing a suspect? If you do these things, or wish you could, Listening Library has a wealth of titles to satisfy the budding Nancy Drew or Sherlock Holmes. In the hilarious MR. AND MRS. BUNNY—DETECTIVES EXTRAORDINAIRE! by National Book Award-winning author Polly Horvath, a young girl comes home to find her parents have been kidnapped by foxes, but luckily two detectives are on the case…who happen to be bunnies. GUY LANGMAN, CRIME SCENE PROCRASTINATOR introduces listeners to Guy, a high school slacker who joins the forensics club, only to discover that a simulated crime scene is all too real…Alexander MCall Smith’s THE GREAT CAKE MYSTERY: PRECIOUS RAMOTSWE’S FIRST CASE gives a glimpse into Precious’s past, long before the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, and will delight both children and adult fans. LIAR & SPY, the latest by Newbery Award Winner Polly Horvath, is a touching and intriguing story about spies, games, hidden truths, and the friendship between Georges and his new friend Safer, who is suspicious of their mysterious neighbor Mr. X. Finally, Philip Pullman delivers two action-packed stories in TWO CRAFTY CRIMINALS! AND HOW THEY WERE CAPTURED BY THE DARING DETECTIVES OF THE NEW CUT GANG, featuring characters Benny Kaminsky, Thunderbolt Dobney, and their rag-tag gang of neighborhood rowdies. When the gang takes on the case of some stolen silver, they only have two clues—a blob of wax and an unusually long match. It’s an absurd and gleeful listen.
Get your sleuth on!
