About the Books 

The Hong Brothers Mysteries combine the classic ingredients of a good mystery - clues, suspects, red herrings - with the fun and relatable elements of a children’s book. While many children’s mysteries are chapter books, The Hong Brothers Mysteries are beautifully illustrated picture books that introduce the youngest readers to the mystery genre featuring Asian protagonists. 


Mysteries get kids to think critically and pay attention to details they might not otherwise notice. As you're reading the book, ask your little readers to look for clues and what their predictions are!
