About Highlights

Highlights is a global media brand dedicated to helping children become curious, creative, caring, and confident through engaging content and experiences that focus on nurturing and developing the whole child. Highlights reaches children 0–12 with its popular magazines and books, multi-platform digital experiences, digital apps, toys/games, a podcast, and more.

About the Creators

Dennis Haley and Marcy Brown are award-winning writers who just happen to be married to each other. (It shortens the commute.) In addition to their Emmy win and nominations, they won the Humanitas prize for Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks. Jakers! also brought them the experience of seeing Mel Brooks read their jokes—and laugh. (There's no statue for that, but it's just as treasured.)
In addition to their screenwriting, Dennis and Marcy have performed stand-up and improv, and visited schools to speak about writing, creativity, and the power of words. Yet their cats remain unimpressed.

Fun and not too scary

My 5 yr old loves mysteries but they can get a little spooky sometimes, these are fun and kid appropriate and he likes to try and solve them before they finish.

We love it!

My daughter (almost 9) and I love these little mysteries. Her only complaint is having to wait on a new episode each week lol.

Dramatized Mysteries for Little Ones

My 5 year old and I have been having an absolutely delightful time listening to these short little mystery stories. Each story has music, sound effects and different voices acting out the story- with enough suspense to keep your little one engaged. I loved reading Nancy Drew books growing up so this audio experience has been a really fun way to introduce my little one to mystery stories!

Very Clever for the Kids!

I just listened to this, and kids will love it! Short and sweet, easy to follow along, but not toooooo easy to figure out. Great acting, very catchy theme song! I can't wait to hear more episodes.
