Wildlife Mysteries

The Mystery of the Tarantula Trap

Tarantulas can be terrifying – or are they really that bad?! Join Avery, Ella, Evan, and Roo as they embark on an unexpected arachnid adventure! The size of a dinner plate? Seriously?? When tarantula traps keep appearing (and disappearing!), the kids are drawn into a mystery they’ll need all eight of their legs to solve! 

Baffling clues abound – and launch the kids into a spider web of mystery that requires tech skills and high gear to solve! "Once you get tangled up in this mystery, you won’t want it to end!" Mystery books have always been a great higher-order, critical–thinking genre, and the "real kid characters" in this series eagerly get into using high-demand Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) skills to solve each mystery!
