The Jersey Trackers and the Imagination Tree Mystery PDF Print E-mail

Jersey Trackers Center for the Book

The NJ Center for the Book is delighted to present its first online e-serial book, The Jersey Trackers and the Imagination Tree Mystery, a mystery story for New Jersey readers of all ages.

Start the journey here.

The book consists of eight chapter installments to be posted weekly. Each chapter is written by a well-known New Jersey author – Pat Brisson, Wil Mara, Wendy Mass, Jim Murphy, Trinka Hakes Noble, Margie Palatini, Pamela Swallow, and Joshua Tiprigan. Illustrations have been contributed by well-known New Jersey illustrators – Robert Blake, Leeza Hernandez, Gerald Kelley, Trinka Hakes Noble, Margie Palatini, Scott Rawlins, Karen Romagna, and Lena Shiffman.

Our main characters are a children’s librarian and his book club, consisting of six curious, inventive and adventurous young readers – the “New Jersey Trackers.” Each chapter’s setting is a prominent New Jersey location and literary landmark. The Trackers travel around the state in a bookmobile, stopping at each location to search for clues and signs that help solve a mystery.

Join us on this exciting adventure. Use your home computer or visit the library to get started!
