Pickle King, The

Author: Rebecca Promitzer

  • AGES 9 - 12 
  • Genre Mystery and Suspense, Adventure
Twelve-year-old Bea lives in the podunk, nowhere town of Elbow, where it rains so much the residents have green mold growing between their toes.
Nothing ever happens in Elbow. Its closest claim to fame is a giant pickle factory, owned by Herman, the Pickle King. Herman's a small-time big shot, a local celebrity...
Until he turns up dead. And when Bea, Sam, and their misfit friends stumble across his body — minus one eyeball — in the waterlogged basement of a creepy old house, suddenly they're the ones in a pickle! With a mystery to solve, maybe this summer won't be such a bore after all.
