AVI Who Stole the Wizard of Oz books? THE END!!! Library Ms. McPhearson

Becky is really angry because Mrs B accused her of stealing the Wizard of Oz and other books from the library. So Becky and Toby decide to find out who really did it, so she can prove she’s innocent.
The books were donated by Ms Tobias, a rich woman in Checkertown, who recently died. She had no family, so Becky & Toby go to see her maid, Ms Chesterson, to ask her some questions. After talking to her and learning more about Ms Tobias, they decide to get copies of the stolen books to try to find clues. Becky and Toby read all of them.. trying to to find out what they had in common. The books were Winnie the Pooh, Through the Looking Glass, the Wind in the Willows, and Treasure Island (and, of course, the Wizard of Oz) . The books all had to do with maps and finding something, some type of “treasure”. The twins thought about it, and realized someone was trying to find Ms Tobias’s treasure! That’s why the thief stole the books! Everyone knew Ms Tobias was rich, but when she died, nobody knew where she left her money. In the book Through the Looking Glass, there was no map, but a picture of the chessboard when Alice played the Red Queen. It looked like a checkerboard. Becky & Toby put the picture of the chessboard, and the map of checkertown side by side – and discovered the last move, where Alice beats the Queen, is the town library on the map. They figured out the treasure must be hidden in the library, behind the big mirror (looking glass). Toby and Becky decide to set a trap for the thief. They go to a newspaper reporter about the clues they figured out, knowing the thief will figure it out too, and come to the library to get the treasure. When the newspaper prints their story, Becky and Toby go to the library …… to finally find out who the thief is! twin's house Ms.Chesterston
