Dagger & Dash:

The Scrimshaw Medallion

Step aside Sherlock Holmes! Girl detective Amanda Dagger is on her first case.

Using brilliant logic and powerful observation, Amanda sets out to find a friend’s scrimshaw medallion that mysteriously disappears.

Teaming up with Freddy Dash, the class clown and detention pro, the two uncover more than they bargained for. Shattered glass, a run-a-way truck and a near drowning leave the young sleuths wondering why someone is trying to scare them away from the medallion—and from uncovering a darker truth.

Enter Three Witches

Amanda Dagger is an eleven-year-old Sherlock Holmes in pink converse sneakers. Freddy Dash is the class clown, baseball star and school detention pro.


The unlikely friends team up again when an ancient skeleton is unearthed on school grounds under suspicious circumstances, and all fingers point to three spinster sisters known in town as the Riverbend witches.


It’s the beginning of sixth grade and Amanda plays Lady Macbeth in the school play while Freddy practices for the championship fall baseball game.


But their lives become more complicated when the school is vandalized and a stranger stalks them on Halloween night. Amanda and Freddy must uncover the secret behind these strange events, before they become the next victims.
