If you haven’t discovered the Night Buddies Adventures series of chapter books yet, that’s okay! Let us tell you a bit about them and you can join us on this exciting “program”—that’s Night Buddies speak for adventure.
The first book in the Night Buddies Adventures series, Night Buddies and the Pineapple Cheesecake Scare, is about the nighttime adventures of a young boy named John, who is not ready to go to sleep, and his friend, a bright red crocodile named Crosley who turns up under John’s bed. 
They sneak out of John’s house using Crosley’s “I-ain’t-here-doodad” which makes them invisible to John’s parents. Then they embark on an adventure chasing down enemies and cleaning up one mess after another as they solve the earthshaking mystery: who stole all the pineapple cheesecakes from the only factory in the world that makes them! 

Night Buddies, Impostors, and One Far-Out Flying Machine, the second book in the Night Buddies Adventures series, has a ton of mischief going on all over the Borough, done by a red crocodile and causing confusion and hard feelings everywhere. It’s up to John to help prove Crosley isn’t the red crocodile behind this madness.
