I am very excited to share a book from Blackberry Book Tours. They do younger grade books, which is something I am really interested in as someone studying to be a children’s librarian. The age range of this book is grades 4-7.

About Bernice Takes a Plunge
Bernice Peppercorn’s imagination fills her mind and her notebooks with adventure and intrigue. She sees crimes where there are none and races to the local police station daily to fulfil her civic duty.
When a real robbery is committed in town, Bernice dives into detective mode and stumbles across vital clues that could help find the thieves. No one believes her except Ike, a one-legged fisherman who lives down at the wharf.
Bernice Takes a Plunge is an exciting and humorous adventure for middle grade readers.
Middle grade is fun for me, and I have been reading it for several years now. I am no expert at all, but this book was quite fun. This is a great middle grade mystery for the tweens who want something fun but not scary. It reminds me of some of the other modern middle grade mysteries I have enjoyed, and I like it very much.
Bernice has adventures and solve mysteries. When she is going to solve a real crime, things become more dangerous and she must stay safe and solve this mystery as well.
Definitely a great story middle grade readers will not be able to put down. They will laugh, cheer, and enjoy tagging along for the adventure.
An exciting first book in the series, I cannot wait for more.
About the Author:
Ann Harth writes fiction and non-fiction for children and adults. Strong, interesting characters creep into most of her books and stories, and many arrive with a sense of humour.
Before becoming a writer, mentor and developmental editor in Far North Queensland, Ann studied psychology, waited tables, bar-tended, picked strawberries, worked as a clown and punched keys on various tills. She also spent ten years working with children with special needs. Ann taught writing for the Australian College of Journalism for eight years before taking the leap into freelance work.
Ann has had a number of fiction and non-fiction children’s books published in Australia and the UK and over 120 short stories sold internationally.
After five years (2015-2020) she has stepped down from her position as Far North Queensland representative for The Society of Children’s Book Writers and illustrators as Bernice is eager to dive into another book.
When not tapping the keys, Ann stuffs a notebook into her pack and searches for remote places to camp, hike or explore.
