Hilde Cracks the Case Series

Real-life super-sleuth and media sensation Hilde Lysiak's reporting skills are put to the test in this fun early chapter book mystery series!
Nine-year old crime reporter Hilde Lysiak is starring in her very own early chapter book series — inspired by news stories Hilde wrote in real life! In this first book, there's been a break-in on Orange Street! Cupcakes have been stolen, and soon a pie goes missing, too. Hilde and her sister/photographer, Izzy, must interview witnesses and follow the clues. Can Hilde crack the case in time to post her news story online? Joanne Lew-Vriethoff's personality-filled illustrations appear on every page, bringing Hilde's adventures to life for young readers!

Pick a book. Grow a Reader! This series is part of Scholastic's early chapter book line Branches, aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!

I spend the last few days at Bologna Children’s Bookfair and caught up with some of my publishers and saw some of the new books I illustrated. It was exciting, nerve wrecking and inspiring. We celebrate Albert Whitman’s 100 Year Publishing Anniversary and my book birthday
I Used To Be Famous by Tara Luebbe, Becky Cattie It was great to see the other series Invisible String (just out) and Invisible Leash (not yet out) together at Little Brown Books. I never thought I would get to make illustrations for children’s book full time so I’m really grateful that I can do something I love just about everyday. I have worked my butt off all these years obssessivelly (lol) to get to this point. I feel so very lucky to be able to work with some pretty awesome publishers who love children’s books just as much as I do.

More photos from the book fair to come. I have a bunch of deadlines to make so this will have to wait. It was an awe inspiring week and I’m poop tired.

While there, her dogged pursuit of the truth leads her to unearth a cold case that everyone in town, including her own father, tried hard to bury....... Nellie Andreeva
