About the Author
Julian Rubin lives in Israel. By profession, he is an electronics and computer technician and those were the positions he held in the Israeli Army Signal Corps. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in math and history at the Open University of Israel. He makes a living as an information specialist and as a math, English and science high school teacher. His first juvenile novel, The Orchid Grower, reflects many of his life experiences and interests. Its main goal is to present to the young reader several scientific topics fluently interwoven into an adventure plot in order to encourage science, web and computer literacy among the young. He prefers to write for the pre-puberty age, since these youngsters are old enough to understand and young enough not to lose optimism. More at http://www.julianTrubin.com/

"The Orchid Grower" is a great mystery for young and older readers alike. Thefts occur around the city and Joab investigates them along with his sister, Dina. At the crime scenes, the thieves leave behind orchids. Dina recognizes them as bee orchids and the kids try to find people who grow this specific type of orchid.
The author writes this book in a picturesque way. You feel like you are right next to Joab and Dina as they avoid detection from an armed man behind a tree. The story is written so good, you never feel lost. My favorite part of the book was when they realized how the toys in the toy store were connected to the crimes.
In conclusion, this book is good read and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quick mystery. Happy reading!
