Christina, who has a knack for stumbling upon (and solving) real-life mysteries, heads to Savannah, GA, where she and her Girl Scout friends are eager to join in the festivities for the National Camporee celebrating the Girl Scouts' 100th Anniversary. Although they are staying with Mimi, Christina's mystery-writing grandmother, Christina reassures the girls that on this trip, there will be no funny business and no mysteries.

But as they begin exploring the historic city, they discover that someone is leaving creepy clues that lead them to River Street, a spooky cemetery, on a ghost tour, and even to Juliette Gordon Low's home. Soon, they find themselves in the middle of a real mystery that is going to need all the Scouting skills they have, as well as their friendship, to work out! With just a few days until the Camporee begins, the girls put their skills into action to solve a mystery filled with giggles, goose bumps and "s'more!"

This book also includes lots of EXTRA (Girl Scout!) STUFF to do:
´ Create a mystery-writing patch!
´ Read about Juliette Gordon Low and other famous scouts in history!
´ Learn the lingo with a glossary of Girl Scout terms!

Like all of Carole Marsh's Mysteries, this mystery incorporates history, geography, culture and cliffhanger chapters that will keep kids begging for more! This mystery includes SAT words, educational facts, fun and humor.

My Life As A Third Grade Vampire is a fun series for elementary-age readers. This engaging story is from the perspective of the main character - a very likable, but slightly self-conscious, third grader! This charming, humorous, non-scary story subtly shares important messages on individuality, anti-bullying, and self-acceptance with candor, humor, and sensitivity. Full-cover illustrations have quirky humor and personality that will delight young readers! Fun for any age!

Doris, Zorba, and Orloff are vampire orphans, only it is not certain if they realize that? When they transfer from Transylvania to their new school, the trio fit right in, much to the surprise of their teacher Ms. Bogus, their principal Mr. Ernie, and the school nurse Miss Needle. While it's clear they are "different" from other students, the vampire orphans soon prove that they're all about helping, learning, and achieving great things!

The story follows Doris, Zorba, and Orloff in their day-to-day lives of being a third grade vampires, pressures they feel from being different, and ultimately, how they learn to acceptãand even embraceãtheir uniqueness.

With all the bullying that goes on today, it's hard for kids to come to the point of self-acceptance. The purpose of this book is to shed light on individuality and being comfortable in your own skin regardless of how different you might feel.

Journey along to discover how the characters learn to embrace their uniqueness and find self-acceptance.

My Life As A Third Grade Vampire also includes:
a glossary of Vampire and other words.
Vampire Legend, Lore, and More.
Questions for Discussion and Debate.
