Greetings from Somewhere:

A new series from Little Simon!


Eight year-old twins Ethan and Ella have embarked on the adventure of a lifetime: they’re traveling around the world! With a travel-writer mother, and an aloof professor for a father, the twins manage to find time in every foreign city to explore it themselves. Ethan is a soccer star who loves adventure, and Ella is an intuitive bookworm, but they have one thing in common: they both love a good mystery.


In each new city, Ethan and Ella must solve dual mysteries and make it back in time before the train/plane/boat to the next city leaves!

Greetings from Somewhere, Book 1:

The Mystery of the Gold Coin


The day before Ethan and Ella begin their adventure, Grandpa Harry stops by with some farewell gifts. He gives Ella a pretty journal since he knows she loves to write, and he gives Ethan a special gold coin. Then, on the morning of their departure, Ethan discovers that the coin is missing! Together, the twins must retrace their steps and solve the mystery of the lost coin. All before it’s time to leave for the airport!



Greetings from Somewhere, Book 2:

The Mystery of the Mosaic


In this second Greetings from Somewhere book, Ethan and Ella head to Venice, Italy. Shortly after arriving, the twins embark on a high-speed gondola chase, hoping to find a hidden mosaic.
