The Astro Cowboy by David A Kelly
Have you ever visited the Nasa Space Center? You should, it's a fantastic place to visit. Here's some information on it: Space Center . The cousins in this story visit there and it is where this mystery begins...
This is a Random House Stepping Stone Book that was shared with me for review (thank you). It has been published and is the fourth in the Ballpark Mysteries series, so you can choose from several. Check them out at your local bookstore.
Mike and Kate visit the Houston Space Center and meet a real astronaut before they go to the Astros game. They plan to hook up later with Commander Rice at the game, but he doesn't show up to do opening throw. Commander Rice is not the only missing thing; the moon rock he was carrying is gone, too!
This is written for ages 6-9 and it's a simple mystery that the children solve themselves. They are clever and smart, which helps a lot. Why not see if your child can figure out where the moon rock is hidden before you do?
