Mystery Solved at Great Reads

There are two competing restaurants in Ellen Raskin's The Westing Game, so we recreated them both:

Shin Hoo's Restaurant
Almond Cookies
Chocolate-covered Chinese cookies

Theodorakis Coffee Shop
Mini cupcakes
Hot Chocolate

In order to keep all the murder suspects straight, we had all the moms and their daughters draw a picture of each of the sixteen Westing heirs.

As you can see, they did a terrific job.

Taylor led the discussion on the book.

Since there were a lot of fireworks in the book, we made some of our own:


  1. This was such a fun time! THANK you ladies for setting this up. Yummy food, fun craft and good reads!

  2. we are reading the book and it's so much fun!!!!
