Nana Cracks the Case!

by

Nana Cracks the Case! Cover

 

Staff Pick

She's the wackiest, funniest grandma ever — and she's hot... warm... cold on the trail of the Yumdum thief! This book is just plain weird! And that's a good thing — trust me. Nana Cracks the Case! is a great book for kids — smart, kooky, doesn't talk down to them, and it's as fun to read for its voice as for the crazy things that happen. I love Nana. And I love this book.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nana is not your ordinary grandma. She never wears cloppy shoes, drinks prune juice, or worries about slippery surfaces. Eufala and Bog's nana would much rather join the circus, work as a backhoe operator, or maybe become a detective. Which is exactly what happens in this very funny chapter book. When Nana answers an ad in the local newspaper for a detective, she arrives at the police department just in time to investigate the theft of one entire case of delicious Yumdums candy. Can one little old lady find a way to save the day and stop the candy thief from striking again?

Look for more adventures starring Nana, Eufala, and Bog coming soon!
