The Mystery of the Graffiti Ghoul
 

ISBN: 978-1-897235-00-3

 
Marty Chan is back with a sequel to his award-winning juvenile romp The Mystery Of the Frozen Brains.
Nine-year-old Marty and his francophone buddy, Remi Boudreau, stumble upon graffiti on the school’s equipment shack and begin the adventure of tracking down the culprit. Marty spies on his classmates, wears his mom’s dress to go undercover, and risks losing his best friend as the mystery of the graffiti ghoul leads him to the graveyard. With continued insight into a Chinese boy’s life in a Francophone town in Alberta, Chan’s humour balances the serious themes of bullying and racism that are revealed in the attitudes and actions of elementary school kids.

Recognized as contemporary versions of the Hardy Boys detective novels, the books in Chan’s Mystery Series are first-rate entertainment and highly recommended for kids.

Ages 8-12
