MediaKit_BookCover_MaisyMarauderMaisy is back! Lunch money has been stolen at West Valley Elementary, and everyone's favorite fourth-grade detective in on the case. With a cherry lollipop in hand, her fedora, and her trusty notebook, Maisy steps into her black and white mystery world to search for clues. Join Maisy on her quest to unmask a thief in Maisy and the Money Marauder.


Then, something strange began to happen to Maisy. She was suddenly reminded of a part of the pirate book they had been reading. One of the characters had been marooned on an island before the pirate ship found him. He had walked through underground caves and discovered a treasure chest full of gold and jewels. The pirates on the boat eventually stole it from him.

Maisy’s black and white world briefly shifted to an entirely new scene. The hallway was no longer just a black and white version of its usual brightly lit, blue tinted self. The colors all shifted to a single dull gray hue. The tiles transformed into wet, stone slabs. The walls were a smooth rock that curved around the corner. When Maisy reached the end of the hallway and turned, she could almost swear she heard water trickling from somewhere up ahead. She could see the door of her classroom. But, it looked like the wide mouth of a dark cave. As she followed her classmates inside, she blinked and her imagination found itself settling back into her black and white detective world.



MediaKit_AuthorPhoto_MaisyMarauderAbout the Author:Elizabeth Woodrum has been a teacher for thirteen years. She came to love writing when she was in elementary school, but more recently began writing material for use in her classroom. From that writing, grew the desire to write books for the general population of children and adults alike. The Maisy Files, a children's series, is the first series that she has published.

As a reader, Elizabeth prefers the fantasy genre, but she enjoys realistic fiction as well. Some of her favorite authors include JK Rowling, Rick Riordan, Veronica Roth, Suzanne Collins, and Nicholas Sparks.

Originally from Indiana, Elizabeth currently lives in Ohio with her two pets: a cat named Butterscotch and a dog named Reese Cup.
