Hit a real deal at a FOL sale.  These books are coded on PBS as Children's Books, ages 9-12.  They are actually marketed as ESL material - most seem to be reading level 6 or 8, per the publishers site.

Publicity blurb: "Joan Lowery Nixon, former president of the Mystery Writers of America, has assembled 10 well-known authors to write Thumbprint Mysteries. This unique series offers quality mystery fiction for adults who want to read at their appropriate skill levels. THUMBPRINT MYSTERY AUTHORS -Richard Forrest, Alanna Knight, Ellen Godfrey, Mary Blount Christian, Joan Lowery Nixon & Kathleen Nixon Brush, Judith Andrews Green, Barbara Steiner, Patricia Matthews, Stephen F. Wilcox, and Kathleen Anne Barrett. "

3-1 until they are all gone.  (Most are 3 books is a series) Order one & post your other two choices here as well as sending me a PM. Thx

Bumping & apologizing for the list being such a mess.  I tried tweaking the tabbing, but still wound up with a mess.
