Another three off the wall stories: Book One: The Riot Brothers Solve a Mystery, Book Two: The Riot Brothers Find a Lost Mummy (they really do!), and Book Three: The Riot Brothers Have Fun at the Water Park. Orville and Wilbur Riot aren’t excited when their mom says that their second cousin who is a GIRL is going to be staying for a few days. That is until Cousin Amelia shows up complete with her old aviator hat and a pet rubber snake. Together they solve a mystery of who keeps leaving the shed door open.

Author Mary Amato continues to charm with this fourth installment of the series. Her clever word plays and outrageous antics make the Riot brothers an irresistible pair of mischief makers. This book also includes more fun and original games; “Croak and Soak” and more. More Riot Brothers rules and more funny songs. Pretty much this book just gives you more of everything a young reader would want.
