After college, she became interested in writing fiction and went on to produce more 100 books. Her books for children and young adults ranged from picture books to mysteries to historical novels. Joan Lowery Nixon won awards for her writing in all genres, but was especially recognized as a mystery writer -- she was a four-time winner of the prestigious Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America.

My grade three or four teacher read this to our class years ago and I remember loving it. It is a cute little story with enough suspense to keep you interested but not enough to give a kid nightmares lol. It was fun to read it again 25ish years later.
