Presenting the mysterious adventures of Alan Nearing and his friends. In The Drowned Violin, there’s something floating in the water ahead of the canoe. It looks dead, whatever it is. That’s where the mystery begins, and 11-year-old Alan and his friends are determined to solve it on their own, without adult interference. They have all the tools they need: Ziggy’s canoe, Josée's ability to impress parents, and Alan’s detective instinct. Mix in a gang of bullies on jet-skis, an eccentric hermit, and the theft of a priceless violin, and the stage is set for a fast-action adventure in cottage country. In the second fun summer adventure, something is haunting the Pioneer Village Park, a mysterious presence that seems determined to get Alan and his friends in trouble. They are spending the tail-end of the summer working as costumed helpers, and when things get weird, the Alan Nearing Detective Agency starts investigating. Is the poltergeist just a prankster, or are there sinister forces at work?Original Publisher: Toronto, Dundurn PressLanguage(s): EnglishISBN: 9781459728882
