Maggie’s Mystery

Guys! Hi it’s me Maggie. Did you all know that my mom used to write mystery books?

Well I have a big mystery on my paws right here at my house! You ready? The big outside trash cans where my lizard-friends like to hide vanish! I’m not even joshing, they just disappear like magic or something. I’ll show you.


See that, they’re gone! I’m sitting right where they trash cans should be. This isn’t even the first time. They go missing for like a whole day, and then they reappear.

Isn’t that a great mystery? Wanna help me solve it?

    Ooh. I love your mom’s mysteries, Maggie! As for your own… When the trash cans disappear, do you ever hear big rumbling, growly noises outside on the street where you and your mom and Wizard Dad go walking? I would bet the two events are connected. Jake and Boone don’t like the big growly monster outside when it comes by our house on Fridays. You’ll need to check out by the sidewalk and the street to see if you can solve the mystery! :) Have a great Wednesday, Maggie! And don’t worry. Your lizard friends will be back soon.

    Hi Maggie – I think Silver is correct and the trash collectors with the big noisy truck needed the trash cans so they could empty them and fill their belly. You know how when you get hungry mom and Wizard-dad feed you? Well, that’s what they are doing when the trash cans disappear. I’m sure your lizard buddies have another place to hide until the cans return. It is very nice of you to show concern.
    Have a great day!

    That definitely is a big mystery, Maggie! Where do the lizards go when the can disappears, I wonder? Since Silver and Vicky helped with your first mystery, that can be your next. And you mom can write about it. I can see it now – a series of mystery stories starring Maggie! I bet kids would love that. Especially your friend, Turbo, when parents read them to him. ;o)

    Hi Silver, what a great clue! I’ve been outside listening real hard for big growly noises and I saw it! We makes a great team, you and me!

    Waving my paw to Jake and Boone!

    Viki, yes! I saw it today, and I helped my mom roll the trashcans back where they belong!

    But I was real worried the big growly machines ate my lizard-friends. However, I found one today, so yay!

    Thanks Viki, you’re real good at this!

    Hi B.E., ohhh! I could help my mom write that book! And you know what? I even know one place the lizards go, cuz I found it today. Under the patio cover pole thing. Lizards are real good a hiding. Mom and Wizard-dad even have a video of me trying to get the lizard, but the lizard won the game today.

    I must close my eyes and think about Maggie’s Mysteries for little sleuths. I bet Turbo would like it lots!
