About the Book
Title: Frankie Dupont and The Lemon Festival Fiasco | Author: Julie Anne Grasso | Illustrator: Alexander Avellino | Publication Date: March 29, 2015 | Publisher: Independent | Pages: 100 | Recommended Ages: 8 to 12
Summary: Hot off cracking his first official case, Frankie Dupont is on the scene when his new teacher takes ill. The pint-sized detective suspects a classic case of sour grapes, but the evidence leads him to the one place he wouldn’t mind avoiding for the rest of his natural life.
Enderby Manor has a few more secrets up her sleeve, and as Frankie begins to unravel them, he uncovers a plot stinkier than a sardine sandwich.
In Book 2 of the Frankie Dupont Mysteries, Frankie will make some new friends, upset some old ones, and of course, there will be lemon meringue pie.

Early Buzz About the Book
“This is a wonderful book 2 in the Frankie Dupont series. Just be forewarned that you will want lemon pie and lemonade after reading! The Lemon Festival Fiasco has multiple suspects and red herring clues to follow and solve while reading. Twists and turns will keep young readers engaged and thinking. This would be a perfect read for gifted education classes. Characters to love, and plenty of action! ” ~ 5 Star, Carolyn W., Amazon
