This was a nice change from the usual narration job — a kid’s book for grades 2 through 4 — The Graffiti Mystery: Damian Drooth Supersleuth by Barbara Mitchelhill (illustrated by Tony Ross).

This was a fun 72 pages of story and learning exercises.  In this installment of the Damian Drooth series graffiti is discovered on a wall in the boy’s bathroom at Damian’s school.  The principal, Mr. Spratt, is so incensed that he threatens to punish the entire student body unless the responsible individual comes forward.  Damian Drooth, known ace detective, undertakes the investigation and winds up putting himself into the hot seat for his efforts.  In the end, of course, Damian gets his man with clever detective work and help from his friends.
