Smashie McPerter and the Mystery of Room 11

By N. Griffin
Illustrated by Kate Hindley

“Smashie will endear herself to many readers. . . . A gentle and humorous mystery for younger middle grade readers.” — School Library Journal

The day the hamster disappears from Smashie McPerter’s class begins like any other. As Room 11 descends into paranoia-fueled chaos, as natural suspects produce natural alibis, and as motives remain unmotivated, Smashie and her best friend, Dontel, are forced to the limits of their parlor-room detecting to set things right.

  • Brimming with clever wit, gripping suspense, and plenty of shenanigans, this middle-grade detective story will delight boys and girls alike.
  • A hamster heist taken to hilarious proportions, perfect for pet lovers and budding investigators.
  • This is N. Griffin's first middle-grade novel following her YA debut The Whole Stupid Way We Are, for which Publishers Weekly named her a Flying Start Author of 2013.
