  1. WorldTrek Publishing

    This is a perfect book for young readers who want to learn more about different countries and cultures. I learned several new things about the country of Austria while I was reading. This is the first in a series that follows Brooke and her new friend Eva. The mystery in this story is perfect for beginning readers. This series reminds me a bit of the Boxcar Children series. The illustrations are well drawn and bring the details of the story to life. At the end of the book there is a section of facts about the country of Austria. I loved the recipe and the German words that readers could learn. Overall, I will be highly recommending this book to readers. – PictureBooks4Learning

    There is so much to love about this innovative series! The characters are very diverse, the books are set around the world, and the adventures are just plain fun! After all, what kid wouldn’t want to read about a ballerina ghost in a spooky castle in Austria, or search for a lost Golden Temple in the jungles of Thailand? I love that the voices of the young narrators are so authentic, making the characters very easy for young readers to relate to. – All Done Monkey
