Young Detective Book Premise

 The book is a collection of 12 short detective stories, with each story offering a new mystery to solve. At the end of each story, the readers are asked to answer a question rather than being provided with direct solutions to the mystery. This makes for a fun and interactive reading experience as the readers need to use their minds and try to solve the mystery on their own.

The author has also explained the benefits of solving the mysterious puzzles and the process to be followed for the same at the beginning of the book itself. Moreover, the answers to the questions posed at the end of each story are provided in the Answer Key at the end of the book. This ensures that the readers get the satisfaction of learning whether or not they solved the mystery correctly.
