Lou Lou and Pea and the Mural Mystery

Written by Jill Diamond and Illustrated by Lesley Vamos

Lou Lou Bombay and Peacock Pearl have been best friends since first grade. A series of small crimes crop up around El Corazón, their quaint and quirky neighborhood, right before the Día de Los Muertos procession. First, Pea's cousin's quinceañera dress is tragically ruined. Then Lou Lou's beloved camellia bush, Pinky, suffers a serious blow. And that's just the beginning! When clues start to appear in El Corazón's outdoor murals, the best friends join forces, using Lou Lou's floral expertise and Pea's artistic genius to solve the mysteries.
