The Blue Herring Mystery (#8)

Previous: The Yellow Cat Mystery | Next: The Purple Bird Mystery

An ancient whaling journal sets Djuna on course for buried treasure

When old Captain Beekman was on his deathbed, he turned to his daughter and muttered, “Lift the blue herring.” It’s a cryptic piece of family lore—until the day Djuna pays a visit to the old captain’s house. Inspecting the ship’s log from Captain Beekman’s final sailing voyage, the brilliant young sleuth notices something no one else ever has. A page has been torn out—and it holds the key to an adventure.

Could the missing page have to do with a long-buried treasure? Where does the blue herring fit in? With his scrappy terrier, Champ, by his side, Djuna will unravel the mystery and decode the captain’s last words once and for all.
