Stolen Turtles?

Why would anyone want to steal turtles? Kate and I never thought about stolen turtles until we took a trip to the Miami Marlin’s neat baseball stadium with huge fish tanks. You can read about it in our book The Missing Marlin. But we couldn’t believe it when we read a news story recently about … Continue reading »

The Wrigley Riddle Wins the World Series!

Okay, well, maybe our book THE WRIGLEY RIDDLE about  Kate and my visit to the Chicago Cubs didn’t really win the World Series (and neither did the Cubs!), but Amazon.com did name THE WRIGLEY RIDDLE as one of its Best Books of the Year 2013!

When Kate and I travel to different ballpark, we know that we’ll see a baseball game. But when we went to San Francisco last year, we never thought we’d go kayaking in San Francisco bay!

The Chicago Cubs Mystery!

The Chicago Cubs are one of the oldest teams in baseball. They also have one of the old stadiums–Wrigley Field. It’s really famous for the green ivy that covers the outfield wall.

What Does Outer Space Smell Like?

I’d much rather be playing baseball or watching TV than cleaning up. I mean, why put your clothes away if you’re just going to wear them again? But sometimes, when my room starts to smell, my mom makes me clean it up. I’m guessing she’d want our astronauts to clean up outer space for the … Continue reading »
