Kayla and King answer the doorbell. No one is there but a letter has been left on the doorstep. When Kayla's friend Mason comes to visit, he reveals that he has received a letter as well. Neither of the friends can read the letter because it is written in secret code. Kayla and Nathan set out to decode the letters. They find that only the second word is different. King is sure he knows the author, but the humans don't understand what he is saying. A chance meeting with Jillian, who lives a few houses away may hold the key to the mystery.
I would consider this book more of a chapter book than an easy reader. Children in second and third grade will better understand the nuances and messages of the plot. This book presents multicultural characters and interactive learning opportunities. Recommended for boys and girls in the seven to nine age range.
Author Dori Hillestad Butler has created an interactive story for kids. Young readers transitioning from picture books to this early chapter book will find it easy to read and navigate. They will have fun figuring out the mystery themselves too. Parents and teachers can use this as a tool to create their own secret codes in the classroom or at home.
