Screech Owls Series : Titles in Order

Book 27
The Screech Owls are invited to compete in a four-day skills competition in Detroit. Along with another team, they will be participating in a reality show called Goals & Dreams. They’re staying at a fancy hotel, being showered with hockey swag, given Hollywood nicknames, and posing for the film crew — Hockeytown doesn’t look bad at all! That’s until they meet the other team and start noticing how differently they’re being treated. Are the producers engineering certain tensions and situations to pump up the show? The Screech Owls don’t like to be manipulated . . .
Book 26
The Screech Owls are in Boston for the Paul Revere Peewee Invitational. Nish decides to drop out of school. If it worked for Ben Franklin, it will work for him. Sarah becomes increasingly concerned about Samantha’s attraction to a group of protesters demanding that the New England Aquarium “Free the Penguins.” When the girls learn that the protesters have far more in mind than speeches and waving placards, the Owls have to act fast to save the lives of thousands of sea creatures.
Book 25
The Screech Owls have never had such a wonderful surprise. A famous Russian billionaire has offered to pay and fly the whole team to his country. He wants the Owls to visit his homeland so the Russians can learn from the Screech Owls’ style of play. The team will play in a tournament while they are there, but even before their first practice on Russian ice, Sarah is taken off the snowy streets. Her kidnappers want ten million rubles in exchange for her safe release! The billionaire wants to pay for Sarah’s safe return, but Travis and his teammates decide to take matters into their own hands.
Book 24
The Owls have been invited to Pittsburgh to compete in the biggest hockey tournament ever to be played on outdoor ice. The open-air tournament is to be held in the massive Heinz Field arena, home of football’s mighty Pittsburgh Steelers. But almost as soon as the tournament begins, Travis suffers a serious concussion, just like the injury that sidelined Penguins’ superstar Sidney Crosby. Travis is confined to his hotel room so his injured brain can recover. His memory is patchy, and he’s having some weird dreams. And when he stumbles upon an outrageous plot to steal hockey’s most coveted trophy, he can’t be sure if his mind is playing tricks or the danger is a terrible reality.
Book 23
The Screech Owls have come to the southern city of San Antonio, Texas, a surprising hotbed of American ice hockey. They are here to compete in the San Antonio Peewee Invitational, and between games can explore the fascinating canals that twist and turn through a maze of shops and restaurants in the city’s downtown.
The tournament has been set up to include guided tours of the Alamo, the world’s most famous fort, and for one night the championship team will even get to camp out in the historic site. The Screech Owls discover that the Alamo is America’s greatest symbol of courage and freedom, and when Travis and his friends uncover a plot to destroy it, they must call upon all the courage of the fort’s original defenders.
Book 22
Global warming, conservation, the exotic Arctic — topics that kids are interested in and can get excited about — make this latest addition to the bestselling series a winner.

The Screech Owls have been invited to the Inuit community of Pangnirtung, high in the Arctic Circle in Canada’s newest province, Nunavut. For the Owls, it is a magical world, filled with twenty-four-hour daylight, golf among the icebergs, feasts of raw meat, dogsleds, and the magnificent polar bear. They have come to play in a four-team tournament that features Zeke Zebedee, the greatest hockey talent ever to come out of the Arctic. But they also land smack in the middle of a story of international intrigue, global warming — and threatened species.
Book 21
The Screech Owls have come to Ottawa, the capital of Canada, to play in the world’s biggest minor league hockey tournament — more than 500 teams gathering from all over the world! Little does Nish realize, as he befriends the hilarious, daring mascot, that he is about to embark on the most terrifying adventure of his lifetime.
Book 20
The Owls are all grown up, and now they’re returning home to play an exhibition game in the town’s new arena. But deep trouble has also come to Tamarack.

The Screech Owls are all grown up. Ten years have passed, and Travis, Sarah, Nish, and their friends have gone theirseparate ways, most of them scattered far and wide from their old home town. Travis is a teacher. Sarah is captain of the women’s Olympic hockey team. Data runs a computer business with Fahd. Wilson is a police officer. And Nish? Nish is in Las Vegas, a valued member of the aerial stunt team The Flying Elvises.

When the people of Tamarack decide to name their new sports complex The Sarah Cuthbertson Arena, it is the perfect time for all the old friends to reunite and play an opening night exhibition game. But as the Screech Owls start to return, trouble also comes to Tamarack. The unspoiled town faces disaster in the form of a new gambling casino, and it seems that the powerful developers will stop at nothing to get their way. Not even murder.
Book 19
The Screech Owls have won a contest that takes them to London, England, for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to play in-line hockey at historic Wembley Stadium. They leave the morning after Hallowe’en and arrive in time to celebrate Guy Fawkes Day in Britain.

But between trips to Madame Tussaud’s infamous Chamber of Horrors and the notorious Tower of London, the Owls become entangled in a plot so dangerous and frightening it makes Hallowe’en seem like a tea party.
Book 18
The Screech Owls have come to Salt Lake City for the Peewee Winter Games – with the championship game to be played on the same ice surface where the Canadian men and women won Olympic hockey gold!

Nish has plans to run his own competition: the Gross-Out Olympics, featuring everything from taping players to dressing room walls with duct tape to the “Snot Shot” – seeing how far they can fire a jellybean using only their noses. He also has a team contest to see who can figure out the Great Nish Secret and guess what the nuttiest Screech Owl of all has buried at centre ice for good luck.

But that secret pales once the Owls find out something strange – something terrifying – is going on in the tunnels deep beneath the magnificent hills surrounding the Olympic site.
Book 17
It’s summer, and Rachel Highboy, Jesse’s hockey-playing cousin from James Bay, has come to Tamarack to join the Screech Owls on a week-long canoe trip into the wilds of Algonquin Park.

At the same time, the rookie hero of this year’s Stanley Cup final is in a light plane that goes missing somewhere in the area. It is eerily like the story of Bill Barilko, the legendary Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman who disappeared when his plane crashed deep in the Ontario bush in 1951, just four months after he scored the Stanley-Cup-winning goal!

When some of the team – including a terrified Nish – become separated from the others and find themselves lost in the deep woods, strange things begin to happen. A wolf comes each night to stand by the campfire. A mysterious stranger pays a visit. And a shocking discovery has Rachel and the Screech Owls wondering if they’ll make it out alive!
Book 15
The Screech Owls are flying around the world to Sydney, Australia, site of the 2000 Olympics, for an exhibition tournament to promote ice hockey in the sports-mad land down under.

The trip, however, involves much more than hockey. The teams coming to Sydney will take part in “The Peewee Olympics” – a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the youngsters to compete in real Olympic sports facilities.

What will it be for Nish? The pole vault? Synchronized swimming? Beach volleyball?

The team is also invited to tour Sydney’s magnificent zoo and the world-renowned Sydney Aquarium, where Sarah’s interest in bizarre marine biology leads to a field trip in search of an endangered sea horse. A field trip that brings the Screech Owls face-to-face with Death Down Under.

Book 14
Summer’s coming and school will soon be out! The Screech Owls would love to keep playing hockey, but Muck has a better idea. The Owls are going to learn why so many of the great hockey stars are devoted to the weird and wonderful game of lacrosse.

Travis, Sarah, Nish, and their friends discover lacrosse is a lot like hockey, but with a magic all its own. When the Screech Owls meet their strange new lacrosse coach, however, Travis discovers something else.

Their home town has a deadly secret. Something terrible once happened out on River Road, and a boy their own age disappeared – probably murdered.

Nish is delighted. He’s been looking for the perfect plot for his new horror movie. But as the Screech Owls begin to uncover the truth about what happened, and start filming Nish’s movie, they find they are part of a real-life horror story themselves.

Book 13
Nish has done some crazy things – but nothing to match this! At midnight on New Year’s Eve, he’s planning to “moon” the entire world.

The Screech Owls have come to New York City for the Big Apple International Peewee Tournament. They’ll be playing in Madison Square Garden, home of the New York Rangers, and on New Year’s Eve they are going to Times Square for the biggest party in history. The countdown to midnight will be broadcast live on a giant TV screen and beamed around the world by a satellite. But Data and Fahd figure out that with just a laptop computer and video camera they can interrupt the broadcast – and Nish will have pulled off the most outrageous stunt ever.

Travis, Sarah, and the others have heard it all before. They are more interested in playing in the tournament and exploring the most exciting city on Earth. But no one anticipated just how exciting New York can be. Just hours before midnight, the Owls discover that terrorists plan to disrupt the New Year’s celebration in a more dramatic way than even Nish could have imagined.
Book 12
It was Sarah who spotted the first body…

The Screech Owls’ journey to Vancouver had begun as an innocent hockey road trip. They had come to play in the new “3-on-3” shinny tournament. But when the team headed out to sea to watch the first whales of the season return to the West Coast, the dream trip turned into a horrifying adventure.

It was Travis who spotted the second one…

Two bodies – one a dolphin, one a man – bobbing in the tide.

And when Nish stared down at the floating, twisting body of the man and announced “We know him!” the Screech Owls also knew they were in the middle of a baffling mystery.

Slowly, the truth begins to emerge: an international smuggling operation, a heroic dolphin, and a wildly brilliant plan. The Screech Owls are almost enjoying themselves, until they discover their own lives are in danger!

The West Coast Murders is the twelfth book in the Screech Owls Series.
