Every once in a while I can find some chapter books for free on the Kindle that seem like they may be interesting. I usually have an aversion to vampires and werewolves and other science fiction, so that limits me a bit. Lately I have come across some freebies, though, that seem a little promising.
Please note that they are free as of the time that I am posting this. Prices are subject to change at any time. (I had one that was listed as free this morning, but by this afternoon was already back up to $1.99!) So always confirm the "Buy" price and ignore the "Prime" price when making your purchase.
The Sinister Submarine (Brant Twins Mysteries)
The Brant twins are Jimmy and Sally, who are as different as they could be. They travel around the world with their mother, a marine biologist, and their father, an ecological specialist, and often find themselves in the middle of a mystery.
In this book, they come across a WWII submarine in the middle of the Bahamas. There is no logical explanation as to why it is there. They save a dolphin while working with the US Coast Guard to collect clues as to this mystery submarine.
As of this posting, the book has 10 five-star reviews, some of which even liken the book to the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys series.

But when the class bully cuts the nastiest fart on record, he blames it all on Lance. Lance wishes that farts had colors, so that it could be truly tracked back to their source. And his wish comes true...
