The Code Busters Club, Case #4: The Mummy's Curse
I’m Penny Warner, author of the Code Busters Club series, as well as about sixty other books. I love to write, especially for kids. I have a bunch of books published on having fun with kids—snacks to make, toys to create, games to play, birthdays to host—plus I write mysteries for adults.
But the most fun I have is writing the Code Busters Club series, because I love codes! In fourth and fifth grade I learned how to Sign, tap Morse code, write in Pigpen code, and speak Pig Latin. I grew up reading Nancy Drew and even wrote a book about what I learned from her called THE OFFICIAL NANCY DREW HANDBOOK. So I thought it would be fun to write a mystery for kids filled with codes for readers to solve.
