Doug Cornett at the Learned Owl [6/12]
Join us on June 12th from 1 to 3pm as we welcome Doug Cornett. Cornett will be signing his book, Finally, Something Mysterious.
Paul Marconi has always thought that Bellwood was a strange town, but also a boring one. Fires are burning nearby, Paul’s parents are obsessed with winning a bratwurst contest, and his best friend, one of the founding members of their only-child detective club, the One and Onlys, is about to acquire a younger sister, sort of undoing their whole reason for existing. But then! Hundreds of rubber duckies have appeared on the lawn of poor Mr. Babbage without any explanation. Finally! There is something that Paul and his friends can actually investigate. In the face of all these bizarre occurrences, Paul is convinced that uncovering who deposited the duckies will finally bring some sense to what has become an upside-down world. Soon the three friends have a long list of suspects, all with their own motives, but no clear culprit. When everything comes to a head at the town’s annual Bellwood Bratwurst Bonanza, Paul discovers that some things don’t have an easy explanation and not every mystery can be solved.
The best mysteries can only be solved with your best friends. The perfect summer read for fans of Stuart Gibbs.
