Read by over 150,000 children, the popular Butt Detective mysteries are now available in bridge book format, designed for early independent readers in lower elementary reading levels!
Like the picture book series, these bridge books feature the same beloved Butt Detective character who uses his observation and deduction skills, and gathers clues sprinkled throughout the pages, to solve puzzles and mysteries!
Young readers will love poring over the details, while learning to solve puzzles that are written in level-appropriate language (and the assistance of zhuyin!).
Each book features two stories, and a "hidden" puzzle in the dust jacket for more deductive fun after finishing the book!
One morning, Butt Detective and his assistant was having breakfast in his office when a mysterious-looking client showed up at their door.
They immediately recognized him King Frog XVI from Frog Kingdom. He's here because the kingdom received a note that their royal treasure, the "Wedding Veil" is being targeted by the Phantom Thief U, who will come disguised as a potential suitor on his daughter's wedding day.
When Butt Detective arrived at the castle, many candidates for the groom have gathered, with the hopes of winning the hand of the princess to become the next king.
On the first test across a suspension bridge, many contestants fell into the river below and were eliminated, leaving just five of the princess' childhood friends, Butt Detective and his assistant still standing.
What other challenges will these contestants face? Phantom Thief U surely has already disguised himself as one of the suitors at this point. Can Butt Detective find a way to see through the disguise? How will Butt Detective thwart Phantom Thief U's attempts to steal this royal treasure?
