Scout and Daisy are going for a winter hike. On their way to the valley, Daisy notices the snowman friend she built the day before is smaller. Why is her friend shrinking? Join Scout and Daisy as they find clues to solve the Case of the Shrinking Friend.

Adapted from the award-winning TV show Scout and the Gumboot Kids, this outstanding series of nature mystery books celebrates the joy and wonder of mindfully exploring the natural world.

Perfect for inquisitive young minds, The Gumboot Kids' nature mysteries feature beloved characters, Scout and Daisy, working through a series of clues in order to crack the case. In each mystery Scout and Daisy confirm their findings with a trip to the library where they verify the evidence they've gathered in nature and solve the mystery before having a mindful moment to reflect on their journey.
