Cody and the Mysteries of the Universe
author: Tricia Springstubb
illustrator: Eliza Wheeler
In Cody’s second neighborhood adventure, her best friend, Spencer, is moving in around the corner. Cody can’t wait: she needs Spencer to help solve the mystery of the never-seen Mr. Meen, who lives on the other side of the porch with a skull-and-crossbones sign in the window and an extermination truck out front. Spencer’s new-school jitters and the turf-claiming kids next door — who have their own reasons for acting out — make this year’s shift from summer into a new school year extra-confusing for Cody — and extra-delightful.
“Brimming with charm, delight, and a diverse cast of characters.” — Booklist
