9781484016909: Striker Jones and the Midnight Archer (Volume 2)

The most original kid detective since Encyclopedia Brown!

After an exciting year of solving mysteries, Striker and his friends are off to summer camp! But all is not as it seems throughout their summer adventure, and new puzzles continue to pile up. Someone is firing arrows in the dead of night. Two campers hide a mysterious past. And is it a friend or foe who sabotages the dance decorations?

This delightful and humorous sequel continues the adventures of Striker, Bill, Sheila, and Amy, with new characters joining the fun. Like the first Striker Jones novel, young readers will learn new economic concepts in each mystery, such as wants vs. needs, entrepreneurship, and investment.

A finalist in the 2013 USA Best Book Awards, the Midwest Book Review calls Striker Jones a "fun and rollicking series" with "effortless teaching of both cooperation values and basic economics." SocialStudiesforKids.com calls it "an interesting and well-thought-out twist on the usual kid detective tales."

About the Author:

Maggie M. Larche thinks economics is more fun than jumping on a trampoline while eating cotton candy. A native Floridian, she currently lives in Daphne, Alabama, with her husband and kids. Striker Jones was born from her personal fondness for a good mystery. The Striker Jones economics series for kids has been recommended by the Mamie Eisenhower Library Project, and the newest book, Striker Jones and the Midnight Archer, was an award-winning finalist in the USA Best Book Awards, Children's Fiction category.

Review:

"Striker Jones is an excellent text for older elementary students beginning to grasp more and more complicated economic concepts. Through its easy flowing narrative with lots of conversational dialogue, children will learn to see that economics affect their daily life far more than they realized!... [It includes a] cast of compelling characters... and Striker Jones himself is a character readers will be bound to love." - Rutgers University Project on Economics and Children

"There is no more important subject for young people to be exposed to right now than elementary economics. Larche has produced a well written primer that illustrates the economic fundamentals clearly, succinctly and with a cool factor that young readers will love. Think young Sherlock Holmes meets Milton Friedman!" - James Larriviere, Ph.D., Professor of Economics at Spring Hill College

"Ten absolutely riveting chapter mysteries with economics related themes about Striker, Bill, Sheila, and Amy as they throw down an exciting series of mysterious challenges at summer camp. At the end of every action packed chapter, there is a telling question which summarizes the economic and mystery-related implications in the story. Once again Larche proves that middle grade readers (and younger) are up to solving mysteries, analyzing economics, and picking up on clues in a fun and rollicking series that has some heart and group ethics at the core of the story." - Midwest Book Review

"A fun filled educational children's book about Striker Jones, Boy Detective. Striker is not your average young man because he is on a quest to solve mysteries wherever he goes. As children read, they will not only be intrigued by the stories, but they will have the ability to help solve the mysteries. In each, Larche leads readers into the mystery, then she asks a question to begin the thinking process, and then provides the solution... Any child will come away not only being entertained, but will learn how to solve challenges that they encounter." - Readers' Favorite Review, 5 Stars
