She’s a clever young vampire. But she’s terrified of everything. Can she summon some courage, or will the Garlic Festival be her doom?
Ellie “Scaredy Bat” Spark is a 12 year old vampire that loves solving mysteries, but is afraid of…everything. She’s afraid of spiders, lakes, and loud noises — just to name a few. And her pesky sister Penny never lets her forget it. But with a little courage and help from her friends, Ellie just might achieve her dream of becoming a real detective.
When Ellie learns of a class trip to her hero’s favorite getaway, she can’t believe her luck. But soon Ellie discovers her special sunscreen is missing, and she suspects that someone is out to get her. Ellie must overcome her fear of clowns (and disgust with garlic) to solve the mystery of the missing sunscreen…before she ends up with permanent blue dots all over. Or worse, misses out on the biggest class trip of the year.
Can Ellie face her fear to solve the mystery, before it’s too late?
Scaredy Bat and the Sunscreen Snatcher is the second book in the enchanting Scaredy Bat middle grade supernatural mystery series. If you like brave heroines, family-friendly humor, and interactive crime solving, then you’ll love Marina Bowman’s fast-paced mystery.

What People Are Saying
“As a homeschooling mom and a former certified teacher, I am always looking for delightful stories. This story didn’t disappoint. I liked the fun way the book tests reading comprehension. There are quizzes and answers in the back, but it’s done so the child considers himself to be a detective who notices the story ‘clues.’ Very well done. I look forward to the next story in the series.” – EC Mama
