Horatio Wilkes Mystery Series

Author: Alan Gratz
Recommended Age: Young Adult/Teen
Genre: Commercial Fiction

Books:

  1. Something Rotten (Original Release Date – October 2007; Read – June 2009; Rated A+)
  2. Something Wicked (Original Release Date – October 2008; Read – June 2009; Rated A-)

Note: Alan Gratz’s website states in the FAQ, “I’m in talks with my publisher to do a third Horatio Wilkes mystery, but I don’t know when or if it will come out. If it happens, it will be called Something Foolish, and loosely follow the plot of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’ I have ideas for lots more–including a ‘Julius Caesar’ take-off that has Horatio solving a murder at a fraternity toga party during a college visit, and a version of ‘The Tempest’ in which Horatio spends a summer as an intern at a Disney World-like amusement park.”
