KidsPost's Summer Serial Mystery

Monday, June 13, 2005; 6:15 PM

If you're joining our 2005 Summer Book Club, you'll be reading a lot of mysteries. But have you ever thought about writing one a mystery?

If so, here's your chance. We want KidsPost readers to write a serial short mystery with us this summer. Below you'll see that we've started the story. Now YOU write the next paragraph in the mystery. Next Wednesday we'll publish the paragraph we've chosen from the entries we get, and ask readers again to write the next (or third) paragraph in the story. We'll continue doing this throughout the summer until we have a complete KidsPost mystery written by KidsPost readers. You'll decide whether the mystery is suspenseful, scary, funny or all of the above!
