October 1, 2019

MINNEAPOLIS, MN— Robin Yardi, author of The Midnight War of Mateo Martinez, weaves an intriguing mystery with a sensitive take on grief and recovery in Owl’s Outstanding Donuts, coming this fall from Carolrhoda Books®, an imprint of Lerner Publishing Group™.

After the death of her mother, Mattie moves in with her aunt Molly, the proud owner of Owl’s Outstanding Donuts. When an owl taps on Mattie’s window one night, Mattie looks out to see a shady duo dumping gloop into the water. And soon Aunt Molly is framed for the glooping! With help from her friends, Mattie sets out to find the real culprits. Along the way she befriends Alfred, the owl who’s doing some sleuthing of his own, and faces the fears that have followed her since her mother’s passing.

A sweet story with a delicious mystery filling, Owl’s Outstanding Donuts will delight young detectives and donut aficionados alike.
