You're invited to have some fun with riddles, puzzles, and storytelling this April.

From teasing and taunting to wet willies and wedgies, your big brother has always been a lot to deal with... and things only become more problematic when he invades your bedroom and starts fiddling with your secret invention.

Listen to all the previous chapters of April's mystery in the related content below. You can hear the first chapter of a brand-new story on Monday, May 6th at 8am on Northland Morning. Monday Mysteries is supported by Duluth Coffee Company Kitchen and Café.

And a bonus size-changing riddle...

You’ve got a shrinking machine. And you’ve made a mistake by pointing it at yourself. You are now only six inches tall. What’s more problematic is that the shrink ray is still on – every minute it blasts you again with a size-altering dose. Since the moment it shrunk you, the invention is now switching back and forth between tripling your height and then reducing it by half.
You need to find a way to turn off the machine - you look up at the controls to the shrink ray and figure you’ll need to be at least five feet tall to reach the off switch.
One minute after being shrunk to 6 inches tall, you are hit with your first blast from the shrink ray that triples your height.
How many minutes after your initial shrinking will it be before you can reach the controls?
