Where's Gillette Castle? Young Readers to Solve That Mystery in “The Great Connecticut Caper” Series

Gillette Castle in East Haddam has gone missing!

Okay, not really. But that's the plot of a mystery children will have to solve in The Great Connecticut Caper, a collaborative series by Connecticut authors and illustrators, according to cthumanities.org.

The storybook will be released in installments between January and June with different authors and artists writing and illustrating each chapter. A new chapter will be published every two weeks.

"Connecticut is the first to publish a state-specific version of an original Library of Congress project, The Exquisite Corpse Adventure," according to cthumanities.org.

Young readers will be tasked with trying to solve the mystery, the organization states. The book is fit for children of any age. Readers can follow clues on social media under #CTCaper and share "hunches," according to cthumanities.org.

There will be a launch party for the serialized book at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art at 600 Main Street in Avery Court in Hartford on Jan. 7 at 4:30 p.m.

The publication will be released on Jan. 4.
