Top Ten Tuesday: Middle Grade Must-Read Mysteries

13 Sep

Mysteries were one of my absolute favorite genres growing up – and they still are today! I love puzzles, murder mysteries, absolutely everything, but I especially love anything that has to do with art history as well. In fact, I considered an art history minor in college and also thought about a joint museum/library degree in graduate school. I never thought about it too much until I was putting this list together, but one of my all-time favorite books as a kid was From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler – probably not a coincidence!

  1. Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage
  2. Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett
  3. The Detective’s Assistant by Kate Hannigan
  4. Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Gravbenstein
  5. From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg
  6. Under the Egg by Laura Marx Fitzgerald
  7. Death Cloud by Andrew Lane
  8. Hoot by Carl Hiaasen
  9. Eye of the Crow by Shane Peacock
  10. Greenglass House by Kate Milford

    My kids will like this list. The only one they’ve read already is From The Mixed-Up Files… (it was amusing to have to answer their questions about what a newspaper was! They know now).

      I know it’s an old school book – and definitely showing its age, but I love it so much I couldn’t keep it off the list!
