The first story, aThe Old Piratesa Trail, a is the tale of Hannah Cranna, the witch of Old Monroe. A young girl, her little brother and their friends stumble across an old piratesa cave. Inside they find the diary of a local witch. The diary is small, and after they read it they are left with more mysteries than when they first started. Who would be the one to come to their rescue and solve the mystery of the Old Piratesa Trail? The story is easy and fun to read but itas unique because it is based on a real person. The second story, aThe Secret of the Old Indian Treasure, a is a mystery/adventure about a young girl and her little brother who, along with their friends, search for a treasure that their Poppy told them about. The little children come across a little Indian boy and his baby brother who leave clues for them. Itas so much fun watching them come upon the clues, but the catch is that the little Indian boy and his baby brother have been dead for over forty years.
