The contract included the rights to publish books, films, comics and mechanical sound reproduction. Since there was no significant audio book market at that time, it is legally not clearly determinable and therefore doubtful whether this "mechanical sound reproduction" describes the medium of audio books or radio plays as they exist now. The Franckh-Kosmos publisher of Random House acquired the German-speaking exploitation rights in After Robert Arthur's death in , the copyrights were given to the University of Michigan. In his testimony , Arthur declared that "all rights, legal titles and stakes, [he] owned by the time of [his] death, concerning all published books, short stories, plays or unpublished manuscripts, including all issued copyright claims, just as all rights for license fees and subsidiary rights, as it is specified in his contracts with publishers" were to be given to the University of Michigan.

This is said to mainly be for fiscal reasons because legacies given to education establishments avoid inheritance taxes. Since then Random House has been paying royalties to the university, however, stopped doing so as of , because it was not clear whether the University of Michigan still had a legal entitlement.

The American copyright law said that literature, which received a copyright before , had a safeguard clause, which made sure that all licenses automatically returned to the author or his heirs after 28 years. As a result of that, Random House and Arthur's heirs, his children Elizabeth Ann Arthur and Robert Andrew Arthur, signed a contract for the rights of use of the volumes of Arthur and the further usage of the characters, under the condition that the 10 books were to be brought back onto the American market.

After the series was discontinued in the US in , Kosmos Verlag sought the rights to continue the series in Germany with German authors, and in signed a corresponding contract with Random House without the consent of Arthur's heirs. In , Random House returned the rights of the ten volumes to Robert Arthur's heirs after the publisher failed to comply with the agreed republications of the works.

In , however, Kosmos-Verlag had already registered the word mark "Die Drei??? Negotiations between Kosmos Verlag and the heirs on a new usage rights agreement failed because Kosmos relied on its trademark registration and ongoing agreements with Random House. Furthermore, Kosmos doubted that Arthur's heirs were the right holders since according to Arthur's will, all rights were to be transferred to the University of Michigan.

At the end of , Random House and Kosmos signed an extensive agreement to transfer all rights to the other American novels not written by Arthur to Kosmos Verlag. Due to the unclear legal situation, EUROPA decided at the beginning of not to publish any further episodes based on the book templates of Kosmos Verlag and discontinued the license payments to Kosmos.

In , the parent company of the European label Sony Music Entertainment formerly Sony BMG finally gained all the German rights on Arthur's creations and the use of the original characters and showplaces independently from Kosmos publishing house of Robert Arthur's successors. The contract contained the right to order new books in German, as well as the right to evaluate the sound storage medium.

Moreover, all were transferred: The Kosmos publishing house continued its series of books under well-known titles and with famous character's names. The society filed a lawsuit against the Kosmos publishing house because Sony BMG itself saw its exploitation rights violated. Because of this, the two books had to be taken off the market retroactively.

The judges were unable to identify Robert Arthur's children as the rightful owners of the copyright law. They found that the University of Michigan rightfully inherited the works of Robert Arthur and his characters, meaning that his heirs could not have transferred the rights to Sony BMG. A due date was set for the complainant of Sony BMG to submit the new chain-of-title as well as the new contracts as they were available to her.

The final release date of Episodes 7 and 8 was 30 November On February 13, Sony BMG announced that they had come to an agreement with Kosmos, predating a joint press release on the following day. The rights to the books as well as the brand name, which were the foundation for the audio dramas remained with Kosmos as well as all other publishing products, including calendars, non-fiction literature, mobile and computer games, science kits and board games.

Boxcar Children #3: The Yellow House Mystery - Book Review

This picture book is the perfect companion to the classic kids song. Follow along as he confronts each of his animal friends to see which one of them nabbed those cookies! Lucky for him, Private I is on the case.

Will Private I put two and two together and solve the problem…or is 6 next in line to be subtracted? Sam Cat and Dudley Pig are these cute and quirky animal sleuths who do cute and quirky detective things. In this collection of three stories, their capers include catching shoplifters, pearl thieves and even more shockingly: Sam and Dudley are often hilariously clueless and love to dress themselves in some pretty ridiculous disguises. The illustrations are half the fun. This bilingual story is a funny, lighthearted lesson on immigration and how words sometimes mean more than one thing.

This delightful series feels a little like a bookish Casper the Friendly Ghost. Then one day he meets Claire, a young girl who can actually see him! Remember when I told you that a lot of kids mystery books are a re-imagining of the Sherlock Holmes stories? In The Case of the Stolen Sixpence , the first of eight in the series, she finally gets her big break.

Maisie is our reimagined Holmes and her sidekick Eddie is her Watson; Eddie just so happens to be a dog, but hey! He proves to be every bit as helpful. Nancy puts on her detective cap to help a classmate find a stolen item of priceless value. Little ones may recognize our stylish little sleuth from the Fancy Nancy picture books. Back in action in chapter book form, Nancy solves mysteries in a pink trench coat and a bedazzled magnifying glass. Julian and his buddies Huey and Gloria consider themselves some pretty sweet secret agents.

They have after all rescued a neighborhood dog, saved a small child from drowning… but these kids have their sights set on solving some serious crime. Malcolm is jazzed to be the new fifth grade class pet at school: When Aggy the iguana goes missing, the rest of the class pets accuse Malcolm of the crime. This is a delightful mystery with some valuable lessons on acceptance and inclusion. The books are about globetrotting mouse Geronimo Stilton, a best-selling author, investigative reporter and editor for the Rodent Gazette in New Mouse City, Mouse Island.

Stilton embarks on all sorts of wild adventures with his sister Thea, cousin Trap, and nephew Benjamin, keeping a diary of his travels as inspiration for his books. Start with The Lost Treasure of the Emerald Eye where Geronimo and Thea find a mysterious map that leads the pair on a hunt for treasure.

Another Sherlock book, but with a few twists! Low is actually a husband and wife duo! So I definitely grabbed this book off a library shelf because young Lulu looks like a teeny tiny Edna Mode.

Picture Mystery Books For Kids (infants, toddlers, preschool, Kindergarten)

The Boxcar Children books were first published back in and are pretty much considered classic mystery books for kids. The series follows the four orphaned Aiden children who decide to live in an abandoned boxcar in the forest. In the first book, The Boxcar Children , the kids learn that they have a grandfather but initially run from him, believing him to be a cruel and scary old man. This turns out happily not to be the case, and the books that follow in the series each revolve around a mystery that the children solve together. There are at least eight books in the series, my favorite of which is Meg Mackintosh and the Mystery in the Locked Library.

A Rabbit Tale of Mystery is a middle grade mystery-comedy about a fanged rabbit who might be a vampire. When the Monroe family finds a peculiar little bunny at a screening of Dracula , they decide to bring him home with them. They call him Bunnicula and introduce him to pets Harold the dog and Chester the cat. Strange things start to happen around Bunnicula, convincing Chester that this fluffy bunny guy is a vampire. He sets out to prove his theory—is Bunnicula really a bloodsucking bunny, or is it all a big misunderstanding?

They soon make a startling discovery: The boys set off to solve this strange and scary mystery and find themselves on an adventure beyond their wildest imaginations. Why is he known as Encyclopedia Brown? Because of all the random facts, figures and trivia stored in his pretty remarkable memory. Each book in the series is interactive and contains ten stories for readers to follow along and solve. Basil is a mouse, but not just any mouse: As such he has observed the genius of the crime-solving mad man upstairs and has picked up a thing or two in the art of sleuthing.

In Basil of Baker Street , Basil must try and solve his toughest case yet: Nate the Great is enjoying his morning pancakes when he gets a call from his friend Annie. Nate throws on a very Sam Spade—ish trench coat and gets right on it. He follows clues, asks questions, makes a list of suspects—you know, all the stuff great detectives do.

She considers herself less a solver of mysteries and more an agent of secrets: Start with The Sly Spy and go from there. Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose are three friends who solve mysteries in this much loved collection. As you may have guessed, the book titles in this series follow the alphabet: Still, Nancy remains ever the resourceful little sleuth and always cracks the case. The concept of this series is just so, so brilliant. This series is funny, action-packed, and dripping with brainy girl power.

Harriet is an astute and spunky little girl who goes around scribbling thoughts and observations in a notebook.
