This is the story of three Grade 5 school kids who decide to form a club to solve mysteries after hearing a career day presentation by a city detective. The story is based in Brockville, Ontario, Canada so includes a little local geography and some Canadian history. An older boy in Grade 6 tries to bully them at every turn but is rehabilitated when accepted as a member of the club. Mary, the first President of the club, calls a meeting to get everything organized. The boys quickly learn how to submit motions (mostly by agreeing to Mary's leadership) and understand the reasons for following Robert's Rules for meetings. The story includes a fishing adventure, an introduction to the game of golf and discussions with a retired sea captain about mysteries of the sea. Finally, the young detectives get an assignment requiring investigation and an undercover lemonade stand.
It's the night before Christmas and Santa needs to relax. A nice round of golf will do-until he throws out his back. There's only one way to save Christmas: his foursome will have to deliver presents to the good girls and boys. In this delightful tale of golfers-turned-heroes, these athletes score a hole in one. Fans and players of the sport will enjoy the gift of a holiday tale especially for them. Jody Feldman worked in advertising for many years before turning to writing full time.
