Cooper and Packrat: Mystery of the Bear Cub


Cooper and Packrat’s 4th eco-adventure 

has been released!

The boys are down in the dumps—literally!

Someone is dumping trash on the Wilder Family Campground’s property. It’s bad for the campground, and bad for the wildlife there, too. When Cooper, Packrat, and Roy find a fox in the woods with its head stuck in a jar, they know it’s time to investigate. But when the boys start digging, they stumble headlong into the path of a garbage truck and a hungry black bear.

Tamra Wight keeps the adventures coming in Book 4 of the award-winning Cooper & Packrat series.

Mystery of the Black Bear is a Junior Library Guild Selection

“The author’s love for the forests and wildlife of Maine is evident in every detail of the environs. Readers familiar with the Maine woods will recognize it, while those who aren’t will feel like they’re visiting for the first time . . . good-old fashioned summer fun with a mystery at the center.”
