The Milk Wagon Mystery – a short story for children

Cross-posted to qui est in literis

Greetings, readers. That little short story I mentioned on the Other Site is now out in digital format. It’s a light little puzzle written by myself and my grandmother, based on the games we used to play when I was a very small child. (Most of our games involved a mystery of some sort.) Hopefully, it will be the first volume of a Pleasantville Detectives series.

There is a mystery in Pleasantville! Jason Morgan, the milkman, has disappeared and left all the milk on the side of the road. Why would Jason leave in such a hurry? Ten-year-olds Matthew Baker and Crystal Hill are on the case, but more people are going missing, and Matthew and Crystal both have their own strange secrets. Can they work together to find Jason and the others in time, or are their friends gone for good?

Recommended for independent readers between the ages of seven and ten or read-aloud at any age.
