Leila & Nugget Mystery

Who Stole Mr. T?

Leila & Nugget Mysteries are cute, funny chapter books that get even reluctant readers to beg for one more chapter. In this outing, Leila Beal and her little dog, Nugget, must crack the case of the neighborhood turtlenapping.

Leila and Nugget have big plans for their snow day—that is, until a neighborhood pet goes missing. Now, they’ve got to solve the mystery before the turtlenapper can strike again. Could it be Weirdy Beardy, the construction worker? Perhaps it’s the cranky, old neighbor lady. Or maybe, just maybe, this is an inside job. Who Stole Mr. T? will keep young readers guessing until the last page.
Leila & Nugget Mysteries reward developing readers with nonstop laughs, twists, and—of course—cute pets.

About the Author

Deserae and Dustin Brady are the parents of Leila Brady (a girl) and Nugget Brady (a dog). They live in Cleveland, Ohio. Dustin wants to buy a turtle. Deserae does not. If you live with a cute dog, Deserae and Dustin would love to see it! You can email your picture to dustin@dustinbradybooks.com.

April Brady grew up in Maine and has been bringing her imagination to life in pencil since she was a wee lass. Teaming up with her family to tell stories is her favorite thing to do. When she isn’t drawing, she gets to have new adventures with her own little girls (the real Leila’s cousins). If you like drawing your adventures or pets and family too, she’d be happy to see your art at aprilbradyart@yahoo.com.
