Book Description

In this sequel to The Lost Treasure of Tuckernuck, Bud and Laurie solve another mystery at Tuckernuck Hall. This second hilarious installment is perfect for fans of From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, Chasing Vermeer, The Westing Game, and the Mysterious Benedict Society books.

In The Magician's Bird, the mystery Bud and Laurie must solve is much more serious than a treasure hunt—their beloved school founder, Maria Tutweiler, has been accused of murdering Marchetti the Magician! Can Bud and Laurie—with the help of enthusiastic Misti and evil but useful Calliope—prove Maria Tutweiler's innocence? Or will Tuckernuck Hall be closed down for good?

Emily Fairlie once again blends lists, notes, and classic prose to tell a story that sings with humor, suspense, and magic.

Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Attempting to assemble a scavenger hunt for their school, Tuckernuck Hall, rising seventh-graders Laurie and Bud discover a secret room and find themselves up to their eyebrows in mystery and intrigue. Did their school’s venerable founder, Maria Tutweiler, murder Marchetti the Magician decades earlier? And if the kids are unable to clear her name, will their school close? And what about that magic metal bird? These are only a few of the questions the doughty duo—aided by their friend Misti—must answer in this lighthearted, diverting sequel to The Lost Treasure of Tuckernuck (2012). Grades 4-6. --Michael Cart


“Perfect for mystery fans looking for a healthy dose of adventure and fun.” (School Library Journal)

“The characters’...sassy repartee is spot-on and comical, providing the real magic in the story. Fans of the first book will be glad to rejoin this unlikely team of detectives.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for The Lost Treasure of Tuckernuck: “A sure hit.” (Kirkus Reviews)
