In the first book of this new chapter book series about mystery, travel, and adventure, twins Ethan and Ella must find a missing coin before they move away from their hometown!

When Ethan and Ella learn that their mother has accepted the position of travel writer for The Brookeston Times, they are not happy. Move away from Brookeston? Say good-bye to all their friends? What could be worse? Their mom and dad promise them that this will be a great experience, but that doesn’t make the kids feel any better.

The day before they are set to leave, their beloved Grandpa Harry stops by. As a gift, he gives Ella a pretty journal since he knows she loves to write, and he gives Ethan a gold coin that Ethan decides he will always keep in his pocket. But the morning of their departure, Ethan realizes he's lost the coin! Together, he and Ella must retrace their steps from the day before. Will they solve the mystery of the missing coin before it’s time to head to the airport?

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Greetings from Somewhere chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.

Harper Paris loves to travel. Her favorite cities in the world are Paris (like her name!) and New York City. She has collected many souvenirs on her travels, including a good-luck coin from Japan and a reindeer-horn pendant from Sweden. She also loves mysteries. When she was a kid, she read Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books after bedtime with a flashlight. She now lives with her family (including two cats and a bunny, who are not good travelers) in Ithaca, New York.

The Surprise

So what’s the surprise? Ethan Briar asked.

Yeah, what is it, Mom and Dad? Ethan’s twin sister, Ella, chimed in.

Their mother, Josephine, smiled nervously. Their father, Andy, reached over and squeezed her hand. Ella tried to guess what they were going to say. Was it going to be a new puppy? Or maybe cool matching bikes?

Ta-da! We’re moving, Mr. Briar announced.

You mean to a new house? Ella asked, confused.

Mrs. Briar shook her head. "No, not to a new house. I just accepted a new job. I’m going to be the travel writer for the Brookeston Times."

"So why do we have to move? The Brookeston Times is in Brookeston," Ella pointed out. The Times was their town’s newspaper—everyone read it.

That’s the exciting part, Mr. Briar said. Starting next week we’ll be traveling to different foreign cities so your mom can write about them.

Foreign, like, another country? Ethan asked.

Yes, Mr. Briar said happily. Like Spain and England and Peru and India and—

"Wait! Did you say next week?" Ella interrupted.

Yep. We’re leaving next Sunday, Mrs. Briar said.

"Next Sunday?! Ethan exclaimed. What about school? And soccer?"

And our friends? And Grandpa Harry? Will we be able to visit them? Ella asked.

Well . . . , Mrs. Briar paused. Not right away. But we can stay in touch with everyone. And, of course, we’ll come back to Brookeston—

Someday. We’re just not yet sure when, Mr. Briar finished.


Ethan put his fork down. Ella had lost her appetite, too.
