Ethan and Ella discover some suspicious spices in a market in Mumbai, India, in the sixth book of Greetings from Somewhere, an exciting series about mystery, travel, and adventure.
Ethan and Ella venture into the bustling markets of Mumbai, India, where there are tons of beautiful sights and smells--from silky fabrics to bread being baked to jars of spices. When one of the spice sellers starts getting complaints about his saffron, he is beside himself. His spices have always been known to be the purest in the market. Ethan and Ella are on the case--and they soon discover that someone has been meddling with the spices!
With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Greetings from Somewhere chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.
Horn Book Review
Twins Ella and Ethan head with their travel-writer mom and homeschooling dad to Mumbai, where they track down a spice shop saboteur (Spices); and to Machu Picchu, where they find a missing toy snake and hunt for an Inca sculpture (Bridge). The travel guidelike highlights add some flavor to the otherwise standard chapter-book mysteries. Black-and-white illustrations are included. Glos.
