Book 2
An adventure-filled, illustrated chapter book series about a scout troop that protects endangered monsters!

Troop Danger has come a long way from their Troop Dweeb days, but nothing can prepare them for what’s next: The Strange Scouts Annual Loch Ness Lock-In! Once a year, Strange Scout troops from around the world are invited to the International Chapter House Headquarters, an old lighthouse on the shore of the infamous Loch Ness. But when Bessie fails to show up for her annual late-night visit, evidence points to a dastardly plot to kidnap the ancient lake monster and frame Troop D! Can the Strange Scouts’ newest troop rescue, Bessie, clear their names and help them earn their badges before it’s too late?
Book 1
An adventure-filled, illustrated chapter book series about a scout troop that protects endangered monsters!

The lowest-ranked Troop D (or Troop Dweeb, as the other troops refer to them) learns that their sleepaway camp is really a training ground for protecting the earth’s most endangered species—monsters! Now these underdog troopers are next in line to earn their Monster Merit Badges. 

Troop D is on a mission to rescue the legendary Big Foot, whose water supply has been contaminated. Luckily, with the help of their troop master and the ever-handy century-old Scout’s Handbook, they might just have a chance!
