I wrote this series for my two middle grandsons who enjoy reading mysteries. This is a series of adventures for MG/PT/YA boys but also girls like it too.
Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series is a fun and magical series with spells, wands, black cat, good witches, time travel, ghost hunting and more.

Mrs.D.5.0 out of 5 stars Think! Learn! Imagine! Reviewed in the United States on January 22, 2018“The Case of the Missing Cell Phone” is the first in the Davey and Derek junior detective series, where two twin boys are trying to solve the mystery of a missing expensive cell phone. I love the fact that this story is for both boys and girls. It makes readers think, act, and discover. It’s also very engaging and entertaining, with an emphasis on teaching superb life lessons in a very delicate way. While reading this story, children are encouraged to communicate and learn how to crack problems and develop their creativity.
David and Derek are two twins, but they are very different from each other. David is a logical kid and Derek is all action. Supervised by their assistant named Cat, the two young detectives are off to discover the mystery behind Christine’s cell phone. As they untangle the mystery of the missing phone, they realize that the job of a detective is very tough and sometimes uncomfortable, such as when they question their classmates and the people they know.
This is a very interesting read for middle school-age students that will keep them tickled and predicting. I love that the author touched on a few very important issues that accrue in every school: the bullying, stealing, and credulity. These are very important subjects for children who are that age. In her book, Janice Spina nicely conveyed these very important messages. Her story sparked some needed discussion about theft, bullying, and teamwork. It is full of interesting twists and turns, details and clues. It really keeps young readers’ attention as they turn page after page.
It is also a fantastic acknowledgment of friendship and what is all right and wrong, which is extremely important for that age, when children know that they’re all different and should be treated equally. Their own unique personality would shine if you gave them the chance.
“Davey & Derek, Junior Detectives” is intriguing for my taste, and I am sure that young readers will agree with me. The exciting story line will leave them wanting to know more and to see what happens next in this engaging series. A great mystery read for middle-school children!
Robert5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT WHO DONE IT Reviewed in the United States on May 20, 2015Verified PurchaseDo you want your children to think? Learn how to decipher a problem? Cultivate their imigination? Amateur sleuhs David and Derek, two twins as opposite as they can be, accompanied by their assistant Mickey, code named CAT, are off to discover the mystery behind Christine’s cell phone (she swears she put it in her backpack at school buty it vanished) Being an adult mystery writer – THE CASE OF THE MISSING CELL PHONE – book 1 in an upcoming series- is all a mystery should be – a lot of clues – a few dead ends – and ending that fooled me. All you parents and grandparents this is a great book for all those m iddle grade kids you worry about – might even get them away from that cell phone and video games
Allen Smith5.0 out of 5 stars The Great Mystery Solved! Reviewed in the United States on September 20, 2015When Christine Sander’s who is at Lindon Middle school has a cell phone that comes up missing, who would have thought that two twin fifth graders and their young assistant case worker would begin to solve this perplexing problem. Davey and Derek are twin brothers with personalities as different as night and day. Davey is more the intellectual and Derek more one that tests the limits of life – the daredevil type. Together they set out to solve this perplexing middle school crime, where yes, even the police get involved. With the help of their able-bodied assistant Mickey who is also known as CAT because he can sneak around with no one noticing him, and Kevin, who is a 6th grader the case gets underway at the school lunch table one day. This is a great read for middle school age students that will keep them entertained and guessing all along as to who stole the phone. My nephew would love this book
