The Weird Sisters: A Robin, a Ribbon, and a Lawn Mower

Three sleuthing sisters find unanticipated self-acceptance in book two of this hilarious mystery series

It’s summer, and the Weird Sisters are convinced that the residents of Covenly aren’t coming to their pet emporium—and newly opened detective agency—because the sisters are too strange. So they decide to let nine-year-old Jessica Nibley teach them how to play on the swing to fit in.

They soon discover the town’s beloved tire swing lying on the ground with its rope severed. Who would do such a thing? And why? Jessica and the sisters are determined to solve the mystery. As they search for clues, they stumble onto a second mystery: the robin that nests at Chelsea Oh’s house has gone missing. So they plan to find both the robin and the swing vandal.

The second book in this whimsical chapter book mystery series is full of clever wordplay, humorous misunderstandings, and expressive illustrations. With hints of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream woven into the plot, this kid-empowering story encourages self-acceptance and open-mindedness in a playful way.

"Puns, charmingly eccentric characters, and Amelia Bedelia–esque misunderstandings on the parts of the well-meaning but clueless sisters result in an amusing book for readers transitioning into longer chapter books ... Punny, whimsical fun."

- Kirkus Reviews

"Young readers who are transitioning from early readers to middle grade will appreciate the humour, the plotting and most definitely the characters."
