Eddie Red Undercover: Mystery on Museum Mile
by Marcia Wells
Grades 5 & up
When Edmund and his father happen upon a knife fight in the alley behind their favorite ice cream store, Edmund’s photographic memory and his ability to draw faces well come to the attention of the police. Desperate to catch a gang of sophisticated art thieves, Edmund is sent undercover to museums to look for and sketch the suspects. But working for the cops isn’t all it is cracked up to be, especially the grumpy detective who yells at him constantly. But Edmund’s private school tuition for the next year is riding on his ability to solve it, so he needs to go above and beyond what the police want him to do. Recommended to mystery lovers grades 5-8.
