Book 2
Ghosts? A mysterious plant? Something even more sinister? This spooky mystery (inspired by a real kid’s idea) doubles as a creative writing guide for young writers! 


Eliza loves hunting ghosts — too bad she’s spending the summer helping her scientist mother study weird plants instead.  But when a mysterious plant goes missing, things go from strange to downright spooky. Eliza is convinced something—or someone—is haunting the plant shop. Is she digging into dangerous ground? 
Like Stuck in the Stone Age, the first in the Story Pirates Present series, this spine-tingling mystery doubles as an introduction to the basics of creative writing. With the help of Story Pirate Captain Vincent Rolo and the Mystery Creation Zone, kids can use this kid-generated story as inspiration to create their OWN great mysteries!

“What a fantastically fun way to learn about writing a story!”  — Chris Grabenstein, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Changing kids’ lives, one story at a time” is the motto of the Story Pirates, a group of performers who bring kids’ writing to life through sketch comedy. Stuck in the Stone Age is an action-packed mystery based on an idea from a real kid! Teaming up with New York Times bestselling author, Geoff Rodkey, this spine-tingling mystery doubles as an introduction to the basics of creative writing.
