Book Blast & Giveaway MAISY AND THE MONEY MARAUDER by Elizabeth Woodrum

by Elizabeth Woodrum


Maisy is back! Lunch money has been stolen at West Valley Elementary, and everyone's favorite fourth-grade detective in on the case. With a cherry lollipop in hand, her fedora, and her trusty notebook, Maisy steps into her black and white mystery world to search for clues. Join Maisy on her quest to unmask a thief in Maisy and the Money Marauder.

NOTE:  This is the second book in the series The Maisy Files. The first book is only 99 cents on Amazon. Also, both books, including the one for the tour, are available for free as part of a Kindle Unlimited subscription or the Kindle Owners Lending Library programs. 


Then, something strange began to happen to Maisy.  She was suddenly reminded of a part of the pirate book they had been reading.  One of the characters had been marooned on an island before the pirate ship found him.  He had walked through underground caves and discovered a treasure chest full of gold and jewels.  The pirates on the boat eventually stole it from him.

Maisy’s black and white world briefly shifted to an entirely new scene. The hallway was no longer just a black and white version of its usual brightly lit, blue tinted self.  The colors all shifted to a single dull gray hue.  The tiles transformed into wet, stone slabs.  The walls were a smooth rock that curved around the corner.  When Maisy reached the end of the hallway and turned, she could almost swear she heard water trickling from somewhere up ahead. She could see the door of her classroom.  But, it looked like the wide mouth of a dark cave.  As she followed her classmates inside, she blinked and her imagination found itself settling back into her black and white detective world.

    1. I read Nancy Drew when I was younger, too! I think those books were definitely an influence for Maisy.
