This mystery series features popular children's authors and titles for middle grade listeners. All Live Oak Mysteries are recorded complete and unabridged, and feature molded library cases similar to Chivers Audio Books.

Rich Mrs. Landvogt's dog has been kidnapped, little Elyssa Keltner keeps running away from home, Grams' unpleasant neighbor has disappeared, and Sam's obnoxious classmate is up to her old tricks...Van Draanen manages to pull things together in an entertaining way, at the same time delivering some nicely drawn secondary characters and a fitting theme that is seasonal but not intrusive.
