The Nina, the Pinta, and the vanishing treasure
Who would steal the Columbus exhibit?
With the help of Gina and his 3rd grade history class, Alec is determined to uncover the truth! Santopolo's debut book will have middle-grade readers racing to solve the crime faster than you can say, "Welcome to the New World!"
Jill Santopolo is not a super sleuth in training, though she does know how to open locked doors with her MetroCard. She lives in New York City and is currently pursuing her MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults at Vermont College. When she’s not writing, Jill edits children’s books for a major publishing house.
