Carole Marsh Mystery Series

Around the World in 80 Mysteries

The Mystery on the Great Wall of China (Beijing, China)

Thousands of miles from home, Grant Christina, Mimi, and Papa look out the window of their airplane at the winding-snake wall – endless as far as they can see. When Grant finds a treasure map in the seat pocket, the mystery begins. The treasure hunt takes Grant, Christina and their Chinese pen pals on a wild ride in a rickshaw, to the land of the Forbidden City, and face-to-face with a dragon! 

X marks the spot but where is X? As the kids try to solve the puzzle, they come to across fortune cookies with clues and warnings (yikes!), dragons with menacing messages, fantastic fireworks, and a "flowerpot" army! Can they beat the bad guy to the treasure?? The race is on! 

LOOK what’s inside this mystery – people, places, history and more!
