The Secret Files of Fairday Morrow: Book 1

Written by Jessica Haight & Stephanie Robinson

Illustrated by Roman Muradov


The Begonia House keeps its secrets. Everyone knows that. Everyone, that is, except for clever eleven-year old Fairday Morrow, whose family has just moved in. Being the Senior Investigator in the Detective Mystery Squad, more commonly known as the DMS, she’s ready to uncover the mysteries hidden within the strange manor. As the investigation gears up and the pieces of the puzzle fall into place, the three young sleuths enter into a world where anything is possible, and the danger is most definitely real. Can they piece together the puzzle before it's too late? Or will whatever's causing trouble find Fairday and her friends first?

Fairday Morrow and the Talking Library: Book 2

Written by Jessica Haight & Stephanie Robinson

Illustrated by David SanAngelo


Fairday Morrow had no clue that moving from Manhattan to the small town of Ashpot, Connecticut, would lead to an unsolved mystery. Her parents’ dream of renovating a crumbling Victorian, called the Begonia House, into a bed and breakfast had seemed like treachery at the time. But Fairday found out that her new house kept secrets, and once inside its twisted front gates, anything was possible. When mysterious notes start showing up warning that a librarian is in trouble and a bookworm is eating words, Fairday thinks the Begonia House has more skeletons in its closets. What happens to stories when their words get eaten?

The plot is unique, imaginative, creative, and fresh and I like how the authors bring the written word, grammar, books, and libraries alive. The illustrations add to the appeal of the book and it is a good read for all those kids who love mysteries. The characters are interestingly portrayed and the concepts will not only encourage children to read, but will make them more imaginative and adventurous in their thinking and creativity.

Fast paced, suspenseful, wonderfully imaginative, outstanding illustrations and just the right side of spooky for its target audience of middle graders. If you thought you knew what a Book Worm was ... think again - or better still pick up a copy of Fairday Morrow And The Talking Library.

I thought the follow up to The Secret Files of Fairday Morrow was excellent. The DMS was on the case to save the written word.
