Available: Hardcover, paperback, Kindle

    The SECRET ZOO is the first book in The Secret Series.

    When Noah's sister Megan starts seeing things that no one else sees . . . like a herd of monkeys escaping from the Clarksville City Zoo next door, he thinks she's bonkers. But then Megan disappears, and the clues lead to the zoo. He enlists the help of two friends (Ella and Richie) and the three of them track a faint trail of clues that lead them to another set of clues. And another. And another. They discover that things at the zoo aren't what they seem, especially at closing time.
    This is a fast-paced mystery, mixed with fantasy. The end of every chapter is a page-turner leading to new discoveries that will delight readers. Animal lovers and mystery buffs will both love the adventures of Noah, Ella, Richie and Megan.


TARGET AUDIENCE: grades 4-7
MYSTERY / SUSPENCE: loads of cliffhangers
