The Book Bandit
Mystery of the Missing Books by Micah Groberman and Ivan Solomon

Mila and her younger brother Evan are ready for bed and about to choose a bedtime story from their bookshelf. But WAIT!

The bookshelf is completely empty! Not one book in sight! Had they simply vanished? Were they stolen? If so, by who? Was it the reclusive Raccoon, the sneaky Snake, or could it be the grumpy Grizzly Bear?

Join them on their adventure as they travel through enchanted forests, over icy mountains and across moonlit lakes to solve the Mystery of the Missing Books!
