Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
Wow! What a great book for young detectives! Max Finder and his sidekick Alison will take on any case and solve it. Here, they solve ten mysteries, which are accompanied by ten puzzles. The reader is given clues throughout each mystery. Each page also has boxes in which the narrator provides extra information. The first box for in each one contains a fact that has nothing to do with the mystery, but rather provides information about the topic. For example, the first fact given in "The Bicycle Bandit" is that there are more than a billion bikes in the world. Each case offers up lots of clues in both the text and the illustrations. Detailed case solutions are found at the back of the book, including who, how and the conclusion. The puzzle answers are very thorough, too. However, I didn't understand why the characters' information is at the end of the book. It seems as if it would have been better provided at the beginning. Written in graphic format, this book is especially well-suited to those who are reluctant readers and never seem to finish a book on their own. It is also a wonderful way to introduce a less well-known genre to young people. Young readers who want to read anything they can get their hands on will enjoy the graphics and fast-paced text. The full-color graphics make an enormous impact on the story. Kids will want to read all of the "Max Finder Mystery" volumes after reading this one. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs
