Book Nook: The Case of the Pinched Stradivarius

I had a chance to read an e-book from Elaine Loeser, author, lawyer, and former writer for NBC's Law & Order. The Case of the Pinched Stradivarius (Ampersand, Inc., Publishing, April 6, 2018), is a book for young readers with vibrant illustrations by Greg Arvanitakis. One day, while looking out the window, turtles Miles and Fargo witness a little girl's violin stolen by a bad man, who snatches the instrument and runs away. They get Bogie and Bandit, dogs who live in their apartments, to do the legwork while they're out on walks. The dogs get credit, but the turtles are okay with that, because they had the brainpower. They are excited to become Miles and Fargo, Turtle Detectives!

Told in an all-dialogue format, The Case of the Pinched Stradivarius is a unique whodunit. For kids, parents and teachers alike, it’s a fun story that introduces readers to Miles and Fargo, their background and how they become the Holmes and Watson of the amniote world. The Case of the Pinched Stradivarius is ideal for readers ages 3-8.
