You were so highly impressed with Bella’s Mystery Deck I - the fun, adventurous, thought-provoking stories… and you are back for more!

Your favorite sleuth, 13 year old Bella, is back with another big hit for kids! On a new journey to solve 50 mini-mysteries, kids rave about the intriguing stories and flex brainpower further!

With the same appeal as “Encyclopedia Brown” books, Bella invites kids into her life experiences to narrow down suspects, to decode secret messages, to investigate the details surrounding a crime, and to think broadly about motives and implications of foul play.

Fun illustrations, fascinating characters (including Bella’s trusty Black Lab, Noche) keep kids engaged. Clever and captivating scenarios cause kids to apply their powers of deduction and comprehension without realizing it! Bella’s Mystery Deck II develops greater proficiency in logical thinking, skills of synthesis & analysis, and concentration.

Some of the puzzles can be solved with clues internal to the story, while others require some knowledge of natural history, science, geography and culture.

    Review of Bella's Mystery Deck II
    Posted 17 days ago by Linda Haynes

    This is a great item for helping kids to problem solve, my grand daughter and I play this game, taking turns to read and and solve. She is 11 and loves for us to do this together. I am so glad there is a second addition.

    Another winner!
    Posted 7/3/2012

    My 10 year old daughter devoured the first deck & this was a follow-up that I bought with a credit from Fat Brain due to a different bday present that was defective. (Thanks, Fat Brain, for making it right!) I rated this "won't put it down" because although this is not something she will go back to again and again, she could not put down this deck or the first one until she made her way through all the cards in one sitting. This toy is for mystery lovers of both genders and a wide age range. Older and younger siblings will enjoy these cards.

    A rating of Bella's Mystery Deck II
    Posted 1/20/2012

    My niece really liked this gift - she had already used Bella's Mystery Deck I in her school. It would be great for travel or for summer break, but during the school year with all of her other homework, she only plays with it once in a while.

    Fun to do together
    Posted 2/23/2011 by Susie Hart

    I got this for my daughter's 10th birthday(Feb) at her request after we finished the original deck she got for Christmas. She loves these and likes to take turns reading and solving the mysteries at bedtime. The are quick 5 minute mysteries, so we can get through a few each night. She also likes to read them on her own. Using a mirror to read the solutions is a fun aspect of the cards. Some of the mysteries are a bit difficult for her as she doesn't have the background/general knowledge to solve them, but on the flip side is developing this knowledge when we chat about the solutions together. She is learning to read/listen carefully and use critical thinking skills to determine "whodunnit". Highly recommend--I only wish there was a "Bella 3" as we will be finishing these soon!
