Understanding a Mystery Book

Young readers act as detectives and use the clues and illustrations in Stella Louella’s Runaway Book to create a hypothesis about the title of the missing library book. Doug Cushman’s The Mystery of King Karfu may be substituted as the basis for the activity. The plan can be used as an introduction to the genre of mystery or as inference practice.
