When graffiti starts appearing on buildings all over Aquamarina, Violet and Wally follow the clues to find the culprit! In Book 3 of the series, join the Undersea Mystery Club as they explore the ocean to help their aquatic friends!


An interesting and short read, supplemented with wonderful illustrations and even more impressive characters that will easily attract the attention of your child.

The first thing that made my little daughter smile was the character of Violet, a little mermaid who was a decisive factor when choosing what kind of picture book to read. Although this is part of a series, for us it was the first book we read, and we had no problem because we had not read the previous books.

Children get an extraordinary opportunity to get acquainted with the inhabitants of the seabed, to increase their knowledge of certain types of aquatic creatures, so masterfully combined with fantasy, and more than enough to hold their attention to the very end.

 The Puzzling Paintings (Undersea Mystery Club Book 3) by Courtney Carbone contains powerful profound messages and topics for reflection, presented through the use of simple and adequate language structures, which children can easily understand. The author in a very simple, but at the same time impressive way with the topic of the graffiti leads the children to think about social responsibility, about acceptable versus unacceptable behavior. Furthermore, what impresses me personally as a parent is the subtle message that, regardless of age, every child can take the initiative and play a role in solving the problems that affect them as well.

The additions at the end are an absolute benefit for all readers, who will opt for this wonderful picture book, which will help them to get to know the world around them better.

I don’t know if you realized by now that I really liked this picture book, and I think it will be a great choice for parents with children who want to enjoy and learn at the same time.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
