Juvenile Detective, Espionage & Mystery Books

Juvenile mystery, detective and espionage books are for young readers who love to search for clues and ignore "red herrings." Mystery lovers want to solve the puzzle with the story’s young detectives or even before them. Detective story books help children develop great reading skills. This is because kids have to read each word carefully or else miss an important clue. A word skimmed over by the sleuth can lead to the wrong conclusion. Also, young people learn to think logically.

This is a list of detective, espionage and mystery novels to guide your selection. Some books have boys as the protagonists and others girls, but all protagonists have friends of the opposite sex. Today’s books are multi-cultural to reflect society. Yet, one thing in common with the classics and new releases, the juveniles are independent. They think for themselves and the plot allows them freedom from adult supervision. Enjoy the printable list of Kids Detective, Espionage and Mystery Story Books on this web page.
