Laura Zarrin spent her childhood in the St. Louis area exploring creeks, woods, and attic closets, with plenty of tree climbing and digging for artifacts in the backyard all in preparation for her future career as an archeologist. She never became one because she realized she's much happier drawing. Laura lives in Silicon Valley in California with her very logical husband and teen sons, and their illogical dog, Cody.
"Zarrin's cozy color artwork and Alexander's chirpy narrative energize a story that highlights the rewards of mutual respect, collaboration, and friendship." --Publishers Weekly
"The language is accessible, and full-color cartoonish illustrations . . . Throughout the book are a change from many black-and-white chapter books . . . Wallace and Grace are a good team for the younger set." --Kirkus Reviews
"This gentle mystery supports newly independent readers, with short sentences, repetition, in-text definitions, and color illustrations. Bubbly Grace and keen-eyed Wallace make an ace detective team who ably demonstrate the value of teamwork and friendship." --Booklist
