About The Book

Heidi has an overdue adventure when she loses a library book in this thirty-second Heidi Heckelbeck adventure!

The Brewster Library has always been a magical place for kids in town. It has a story waiting for everyone. But imagine Heidi’s surprise when Aunt Trudy lets her in on a well-kept secret: the Brewster Library has a real magic section! When Heidi checks out a title for a special project, she learns that you can’t always judge a book by its cover. Especially when it’s a bewitched book that loves to play pranks.

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Heidi Heckelbeck chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.

Excerpt

I SPY FUN!

 

  Surprise!

  SURPRISE!

  Aunt Trudy had a big surprise for Heidi and Henry Heckelbeck. She was taking them to the Brewster Library for the town’s Reading Party celebration.

  There were going to be authors, illustrators, and more at the party, and Heidi couldn’t wait!

  “Hop in!” cried Aunt Trudy as she opened the car door.

  Both Heidi and Henry scrambled into the back seat and buckled their seat belts.

   

  Heidi laid her shoulder bag on her lap. She liked to take her bag on special outings. It made her feel very grown-up.

   

  Henry had brought a bag too—his spy bag. It had a magnifying glass, a notebook, and a pen inside.

  Heidi glared at her brother and said, “Oh no, you’re not in SPY mode, are you?”

  Henry held up the magnifying glass and winked at his sister. “I’m ALWAYS in spy mode!”

   

   

  Heidi rolled her eyes.

  “Well, I’m in spy mode too!” Aunt Trudy said as she pulled out of the driveway. “And right now, I spy your mom waving good-bye.”

  Aunt Trudy waved at Mom. Henry did too.

  Heidi sighed and looked out the window. She spied two squirrels playing tag, but she kept that information to herself.

   

  She didn’t want anyone to know she was secretly playing.

  “I spy a goldendoodle puppy!” shouted Henry.

  Heidi spied the puppy too. It was so cute! But she pretended not to notice.

  “I spy a FIRE ENGINE!” cried Henry.

  There was a fire engine behind them. Heidi spied her aunt glance at the rearview mirror. Luckily, the sirens were not on, and the fire engine turned down another street.

   

  By now Henry’s spy game had kicked into high gear. He spied one thing after another.

   

  “I spy a plane!”

  “I spy a cell phone tower!”

  “I spy a lady putting on lipstick!”

  “I spy two girls eating ice cream!”

  Heidi had to cover her ears for the rest of the ride. Finally they turned into the library parking lot, and Heidi smiled.

  At least Henry will have to whisper in the library, she thought. Phew.
