The author of the Katie Woo series has come out with a spinoff. Pedro is a friend of Katie and now he has his own series. In PEDRO’S MYSTERY CLUB, Pedro decides to start a mystery-solving club because he has a new clubhouse in his backyard. In this installment, he solves the mystery of his mom’s lost locket and his dad’s lost cell phone. Other books in the new series include PEDRO GOES BUGGY, PEDRO’S BIG GOAL, and PEDRO FOR PRESIDENT.
This early reader has fun, colorful pictures on every page. In addition there are some nice features at the end including a glossary, “let’s talk”, “let’s write”, ideas and jokes.
