Next up to the plate—book #6 in our early chapter book mystery series, where each book is set in a different American ballpark!

Ivy-covered walls—they're the most famous part of the Chicago Cubs' historic ballpark, Wrigley Field. Mike and Kate can't wait to get down on the field to see the ivy for themselves. But when they do, they're horrified to discover patches of the ivy have been ripped away! Who would want to sabotage the stadium? Is it someone trying to curse the Cubs? Or is the rumor of a treasure hidden under the ivy tempting greedy fans? The Wrigley Riddle includes a fun fact page about Chicago's Wrigley Field.

Cross Ron Roy's A to Z Mystery series with Matt Christopher's sports books and you get the Ballpark Mysteries: fun, puzzling whodunits aimed at the younger brothers and sisters of John Feinstein's fans.

In this installment of the Ballpark Mysteries series, Kate and her cousin Mike take a trip to Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. The two quickly discover that someone has been stealing the famous ivy from the outfield wall. Using a couple of clues and some quick thinking they know they have to catch the thief to keep the Cubs winning streak alive.

This is another great addition to the series. I really enjoy how David Kelly uses special pieces of a ballpark's history and incorporates it into a fun mystery for kids. What a delight!
