The Puzzling World of Winston Breen

and

The Potato Chip Puzzles

by Eric Berlin

These two novels take middle readers – ages 8+ – on mad-cap puzzle-solving adventures throughout a small town rich in character, just like our Brookline or Newton. In the first book, middle schooler Winston Breen is tapped to head a crack team of puzzle-solvers to win a $50,000 contest. But all is not as it seems. Chock full of brain teasers, the first book gives readers of all abilities the chance to help Winston along.It’s an engaging mystery with sly kid humor and a smart plot.

In the second book, Winston and his friends go on a treasure hunt. With the same great family and friends from the last book, the Potato Chip Puzzles includes more mystery, and of course more puzzles. Best of all, if you readers don’t want to solve the puzzles, you can wait until the end.

Fans of the classic The Westing Game will LOVE the dozens more mindbenders and increased stakes in this fun series, perfect for the waning days of summer.
