Meet Randi Rhodes, the world's first ninja detective! Mystery abounds in this delightful new middle-grade series from Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer.

Deer Creek is a small town whose only hope for survival is the success of their Founder's Day Festival. But the festival's main attraction, a time capsule that many people believe holds the town's treasure, has gone missing.
