The Crypto-Capers series, as well as the Joe-Joe Nut series challenge and engage children through involving them in literacy games, leading to improved comprehension and exceptional learning.


“Writing children's books,” stated Mrs. Hand, “gives me a chance to be creative and yet at the same time allows me to educate and challenge children to their fullest potential. The Crypto-Caper and Joe-Joe Nut Series involves the reader into the stories in a way that makes them feel a part of it all as they figure out who commits the crime. The reader will learn about deduction and reasoning, but also about themselves and what they can do. These books show characters with strength and courage, compassion and determination, and children of all ages can relate to that.”


In honor of her new release, Renee Hand will be teaching a mystery writing workshop for elementary and middle school children. Children who attend the signing and workshop will be able to read their final work on the author's radio show to millions of listeners worldwide.
