Along with his friends Bill, Sheila, and Amy, Striker must use his wits to solve the many intriguing puzzles - and even crimes - that come his way. Unlike most boys, however, he draws upon his knowledge of basic economics to solve each mystery.
"An interesting and well-thought-out twist on the usual kid detective tales."
This funny, classic kids detective novel will teach your children economic concepts like incentives, risk, supply and demand, and trade-offs. But we promise - there's no jargon, only fun
Named "Recommended Reading" by the Mamie Eisenhower Library Project, the Midwest Book Review calls Striker Jones a "fun and rollicking series" with "effortless teaching of both cooperation values and basic economics."
