The Mysterious Disappearance of Lulabelle Li
Marc Nottke, author
Budding middle-schoolers Lu Li and Rolf Eriksen find themselves on an unexpected adventure deep beneath the streets of Bartlestown on a quest to find their lost friend, Sam. Through twisting tunnels and colorful caves they'll encounter deadly faeries, grouchy gnomes, and uncover the secrets of a lost civilization with connections to Lu's missing family. Full of humor, adventure, and mystery, Marc Nottke's debut children's novel is, at its core, about the bonds of friendship, the heartache of severed ties, and the knowledge that even when separated, the love of friends and family can strengthen you.
