Alexis and the Sacramento Surprise

by Erica Rodgers

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


In Alexis and the Sacramento Surprise by Erica Rodgers, Miss Maria buys mechanical dinosaurs for her park to attract more visitors, but they have moved and left footprints! Alexis and Kate scavenge around and find strange clues from a hole in the fence to fake footprints. Will they figure it out before Miss Maria loses her life’s savings?

In this book, when their friend Elizabeth encourages them, she sends notes with Bible verses in them (Joshua 1:9, Jeremiah 29:11, Romans 8: 28.). I like this book and the way the author writes, I was constantly guessing the wrong thief. I recommend this book to girls from ages 8-12. – Lauren Oliver,

Book Jacket:

If dinosaurs are extinct, then why do they seem to come to life each night? When Alexis’ friend, Miss Maria, tries to save her business by importing mechanical dinosaurs to her nature park, Alexis and Kate are instantly on the spot to show their support. But the Camp Club girls are soon embroiled in surprises when they soon have to not only deal with mechanical dinosaurs appearing to have minds of their own, but also the local media, which also seems determined to destroy Miss Maria. Can the girls crack the case and keep Miss Maria’s dreams—and business—alive?
