Sophia of the Bright Red Sneakers series
Mission 1: All in a Day's Work (Vol. 1)
Being brilliant ten-year-olds in a competitive Eighth Grade Honors Class is a minute-by-minute challenge. After a Central Park zookeeper is the victim of a suspicious hit-and-run accident, Super Sleuths Sophia MacGregor and Pedro Gonzalez investigate the zookeeper’s questionable replacement with the help of their telepathic animal friends. When they uncover a plot by Russian poachers to abduct Jack the Polar Bear, instead of battling middle school snobs and bullies, they find themselves targeted by the Russian mob!
