The Clue of the Linoleum Lederhosen: M. T. Anderson's Thrilling Tales

Front Cover
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt - Juvenile Fiction - 272 pages
After their last laser-beam-filled adventure, Lily, Jasper, and Katie have flown off for a restful stay at a distant mountain lodge. What a coincidence when they find the lodge teeming with characters from other middle-grade series novels, including the dashing Manley Boys and the boy-crazy Cutesy Dell twins. And when the Hooper Quints go missing, it looks like their vacation is over. Could this all be part of a nefarious plot involving duct tape and Bavarian folk pants? Katie, Jasper, and Lily might be the only ones around who have the chops to solve this challenging mystery!      Includes a teaser to the next book in the series, Jasper Dash and the Flame-Pits of Delaware.
