Fun, Adventure, and Mystery Await at Dinswood Academy in THE MISSING MORTALS by Ellen Alexander
The Goonies Meets Harry Potter in this fun middle-grade mystery adventure series!
By: BHC Press
"My inspiration for the series comes from all of the great mysteries I read when I was a young girl," says Ellen Alexander. "My favorites were Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden, and I've created a modern take on these series in the Dinswood Chronicles."
Emma and the gang are back in their next adventure at Dinswood Academy and must search for a group of missing statues to solve an age-old legend in The Missing Mortals.
While digging the foundation for Dinswood Academy's new gymnasium, a missing sculpture is discovered. Convinced the statue is really part of the missing mortals thought to be lost in 1722, Lord Dinswood assigns Emma and her friends the task of finding them.
But what begins as a fun adventure quickly turns into a desperate search when they receive a threatening note: find the Missing Mortals or someone will die! Will Emma and her friends find the statues in time?
Other books in the series include The Secret of Dinswood and the new upcoming adventure The Phantom of the East Tower.
