Title: The Mystery of the Old Fisk House
Author: Mary Shiverick Fishler & Lois Hamilton Fuller
Number of Pages: 160 pages
Book Number/Goal: 52/75 for 2009
My Rating: 4/5

A troop of Brownies find an old box in the nearby woods that turns out to have a hidden cross-stitch sampler in it with the key to buried treasure.

I found this book while tidying up the other day and decided to read it one more time before putting it on BookMooch. I loved it so much as a kid because not only is it a mystery (my favorite genre at the time), but there are secret passageways! ♥♥♥

Although it's not the best-written thing ever, even for a children's book, I still enjoyed it reading it again as an adult (I still love mysteries and secret passageways!). It was written in 1960 for the authors' daughters' Brownie troop and I really kind of love the fact that these two women wrote an adventure story for these girls.
