Robin Newman

Raised in New York and Paris, Robin Newman’s been a practicing attorney and legal editor, but she prefers to write about witches, mice, pigs, and peacocks. She lives in New York with her husband, son, goldfish, and English cocker spaniel, who happens to have been born on the Fourth of July. 

The Case of the Missing Carrot Cake, illustrated by Deborah Zemke (Creston Books 2015), is an early chapter book about two hardboiled mouse detectives named Wilcox and Griswold. They are MFIs, Missing Food Investigators, and in their seminal case they’re on the hunt for Miss Rabbit’s missing carrot cake. (Please note the names of the animals have been changed to protect the good guys.)
