The Case of the missing sock by Renee Hand


Oh, what a fun book this was. If your child loves solving puzzles then this is the book for him/her. Renee will take them on an adventure that they won't soon forget. Solving cryptograms is the name of the game. The Crypto-Caper even allow their readers to figure out six different cryptograms to help them solve the mystery along the way. What is a cryptogram? I'm glad you asked. It is a message written in code or cipher. Which is how the Crypto-Capers got their name.

Who are the Crypto-Capers?
Max, 14 year old, who loves out-witting the best maze makers.
Mia, 12 year old, a genius at solving puzzles, her specialty is cryptograms.
Granny, in her 60's, is a bit eccentric and as a unique was of doing things, but is terrific at solving problems.
Morris, 14 year old, a geek and the computer genius of the group.

The case is finding out who stole an green sock, this isn't just any old green sock. It is an antique sock belonging to Elvis Presley's grandmother. Also a pair of Prada sunglasses were stolen.

Have fun decoding the cryptograms as the story unfolds. Help the Crypto-Capers solve the mystery. The CC love adventure and solving a crime is their pasttime.
