Harborville's Beach Snack Shop had been open only an hour when Ben stopped in and noticed a new poster announcing a price increase. "I put the sign up this morning," Mr. Levine told him. "Had to raise my prices ten percent because I have so many new expenses. Like now I need a new window for my back room. Somebody broke it, trying to get into my store last night."

"Have you called the police?" Ben asked.

"No. Nothing was stolen." He led Ben to a small storeroom in the back. "I use this space as an office. Sat here and made my price change poster last night. As soon as I was done, I left it on that old desk. When I went out, I locked the door to the main part of my store. So whoever got in was stuck in this little storeroom. Nothing here to steal."

When Ben left he wandered down to the break wall, where Nathan and Trevor were fishing. "Did you hear that somebody broke a window at the Shack?" he asked.

"Nope," Nathan said. "We've been here since dawn. Haven't talked to anybody." Trevor gestured to the bucket. "We've caught some big ones." Nathan stood. "But now I'm starving. I've got a dollar left from my allowance. If Mr. Levine is there now, I'm going up to the Shack to get a Big Beach Bun."

"Better get another dime from somewhere," Trevor told him. "A dollar's not enough any more. As for me, I'm going home to get a couple sandwiches for myself."

"You both stay right here," Ben said. "I know which one of you broke that window. You'd better think of a way to pay for it, because I'm telling Mr. Levine."

I liked the teaser, but I wonder why the sign was made prior to the window being broken. Where there other costs?

Nevermind... I guess if I had read the 1st paragraph again, I would have answered my own question.

ok it was fun and easy, but if the guy put the prices up because his window was broke last night and he needed to pay for extra expenses- then why was he making the poster before the window was broken?? just a thought!
but thanks for the great mysery!!

princetongirlf, thank you for the comment.When he said that he needed to raise the price cuz he had too many expenses, he wasn't neccessarily talking about the window. After that, he said, "Like now, I have to fix the window...." I know I'm being confuzing, but, hey, I tried.

Very nice story, but not much of a mystery, too easy.

At the beginning I read that he had to raise prices because of expenses, and that expenses = broken window. However, he made the poster before the window was broken. I got stuck on this fact and was sure that it was important to the answer so I totally missed the real answer! Good job confusing me.

he had to raise the prices of the items because of some expenses he had, then he adds that he has a NEW expense; a broken window he had already made the new price changes before the window broke because he already had new expenses the window was just a newer one anyway i loved it! easy but still fun

YOU GOT THIS STRAIGHT OFF OF A KIDS' MYSTERY WEBSITE!!!!!!!!!!
HERE'S THE LINK!!!!!!!!!!
http://kids.mysterynet.com/quicksolve/
THAT'S NOT RIGHT, BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE ON THIS SITE THINK OF THEIR OWN TEASERS, AND SOMETIMES GET NEGATIVE FEEDBACK.....
WHILE YOU TAKE SOMEONE ELSE'S MYSTERY AND USE IT AS YOUR OWN AND TAKE ALL THE POSITIVE CREDIT FOR IT!!!!!!!!!
