Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is CASE OF ADVENTURE and how does it work?
We sell Country-Themed Kids Mystery Novels and Adventure Books. In each book, your child will meet a girl or boy from another country who acts as their tour guide. They will read an exciting adventure novel, visit landmarks, do puzzles, crafts and projects and solve clues as they go. There are tons of bright colorful pages filled with fascinating facts and fun activities in each Adventure Activity Book.
Each adventure has an exciting mystery novel to accompany the Adventure book.
Each Adventure includes one of our fabulous country adventure NOVELS, plus PUZZLES and CLUES to solve, and tons of fun ACTIVITY pages.
Read the story, solve the clues and puzzles, laugh at the jokes, try out the slang, study the map, paste the map markers, do the craft, play the games, try out the accents, cook the food, and do the fun activities. At the end of the Adventure, plan your country-themed meal, decorate and have a blast sharing about all you learned.
Q. How many pages are there in an Adventure Book?
They vary. Adventure Books are 60-160 pages long with novels ranging from 100 to 265 pages.
Q. Are the Novels Christian themed?
Our Switzerland and Scotland novels have a Christian theme and worldview. Books 3 – 6 are good clean fun without an overly Christian theme.
Q. How long to complete an Adventure Book?
Our Activity Books are designed for a child to work through over a five day period (minimum), depending on the Adventure and what pace you’d like to go at. You can do them over 2 weeks if you want to do less per day. Switzerland and Scotland are longer (2 to 3 weeks minimum).

1, FREE EXTRA COPY OF THE ACTIVITY PAGES in digital form – to print for other children in your family. Licensed only for other children in your family.

Q. Is shipping free?
Shipping is FREE within the United States and the United Kingdom and takes approximately 2-3 weeks (shipping is slow right now, but is generally less than 2 weeks).
We ship to the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. We can ship to Europe on request. Please email [email protected] for shipping costs.
If you live elsewhere, its best to order our products directly from Amazon.com. We do bulk orders to South Africa a couple of times a year – each time we release a new product. Join our email list to find out when. (Sign up for any free printable on our website and you will be on the email list.)
Q. What if I have more than one child, do I need to purchase two copies of the printed version?
If you would like your children to each have a book to work through, it is best to get two copies. Our children love to have a book each to work through have fun with and show off at the end.
However, you do get a FREE EXTRA COPY OF THE ACTIVITY PAGES in digital form as a bonus when you buy the printed book – so you’ll be able to print the activities (approx 30% of the pages) for other members of your family and then read aloud and pass the main book around for the reading and looking at pictures. EXTRA ACTIVITY PAGES are licensed only for other children in your family.
