A Children's Catholic Mystery Series
Book Review Time!
My ten-year-old daughters and I read two mysteries with a Catholic bent. These are the "Adventures with Sister Philomena" books by Dianne Ahern. The first one is called Lost in Peter's Tomb and the second is Break-in at The Basilica.
The stories are set in Rome. Two kids, a brother and sister, are staying with their aunt, who happens to be a nun and a secret agent to the Pope. They help her solve crimes. It's a very cool premise and these are fun books.
The setting is Italy, of course! The reader learns about saints, architecture, and various things Catholic, and it's all used as a vivid backdrop for the exciting, fast-paced stories.
We look forward to reading the third book in the series, Curse of the Coins.
You can get the books at Amazon , Catholic Child , and maybe even your local Catholic book store! :) Order soon. Easter is coming! :)
