We love Michigan. We love Mackinaw. We’d like to say that we like mosquitos, but we’d be fibbing. At any rate, bring those three elements together, add a family-owned fudge business, and you’ve got the elements to a great story for children.
Murdick’s Mackinaw Mystery begins when the family heirloom recipes for fudge come up missing! The members of the family organize a search party— each one visiting their favorite historical site or tourist attraction around the Mackinaw area. By the end, children will learn about history, mystery, travel and tradition!
As a child, some of Nick Rokicki’s finest summertime memories included trips to the Mackinaw City area. The magical feeling of driving north on I-75 and seeing the bridge come into view is something he hopes to share with young readers across the country.
