Soon to be your favorite sleuth! 13 year old Bella is a big hit with kids.

On a journey to solve 50 mini-mysteries, kids jump into the intrigue and flex brainpower to arrive at their own solutions. Every bit as fun as the stories, kids love to read the solutions with an enclosed decoder mirror!

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 develops 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.

  • Mini-Mysteries Intriguing to Kids

    "My 8 yr old LOVES to read! She has blown through most of the deck in just three afternoons. She really enjoys finding the clues and solving the mystery. With that said, my 10 yr old has reading comprehension problems. He has difficulty following steps and processing. These short stories are the perfect length to keep him interested and can hold his attention long enough to go back and look for clues. He is enjoying them as well!"

    Our daughter chose this as one of her birthday gifts. She loves it! She played w it for at least an hour on her birthday and it will make a great travel and/or quiet time activity. Loved that it keeps her brain working and I got stumped by one of the cards too!

    Perfect for a little detective
    Posted 1/15/2014 by WENDY S

    This was a gift for my 9 year old daughter. She loves it! There is a mystery scenario written on each card and a question at the end. Use the clues from the story to answer the question. The answer is on the card, but you have to use the enclosed mirror to read it. Fun!
