  1. Pack-n-Go-Girls

    Wendy accompanies her friends Chloe and Jack and their mom to visit Chloe’s great aunt in Sydney, Australia. Aunty Pauline warns them about a curse on the family, and gives them an old letter and an equally old rusty key. The letter, written by Chloe’s great-great-great-grandfather on his deathbed, tells his descendant to safeguard the key, which unlocks a box which contains instructions to end the curse… But where’s the box now? Since this story is set in Sydney, we get a mention of the Sydney Opera House, and Diller also works in several facts about Australia’s settler history, And I love that the kids solve this mystery by showing courage, ingenuity, persistence–and by doing some solid research in the local library. I asked my eleven-year-old to read both books (Australia 1 and 2) and he much preferred the second installment, as the mystery was more intricate, and the story more fast-paced. I think younger readers might have the opposite reaction. As for the very old reader – hey, I have no preferences, and found both books hugely enjoyable. The author does a great job of teaching kids about Australia, and an equally awesome job of showing strong young girls doing their thing. Recommended! – Brown Paper Blog

    I was fortunate to have advance access to the next book in the Pack-n-Go Girls Australia. Immediately after reading The Mystery of Min Min Lights I read The Mystery of the Rusty Key because the Pack-n-Go series is really something to explore more. It continues in The Mystery of Rusty Key. It highlights the mysteries of a curse, an old letter, and a rusty key. Wendy, Chloe, and Jack return in a much adventure packed trip in getting the bottom of the mystery. Diller had placed the sneaky education theme throughout the book. And these educational facts woven once again adjunct to the worldly and timely setting these characters are in. And the illustrations in the books were wonderfully expressive. 4 Stars – Bookish Wisps
