Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4-6

Like Encyclopedia Brown, Max Finder is a kid detective. His adventures can be found online at OWL magazine's Web site and now in three collected volumes. Each one contains 10 mysteries as well as extra puzzles and character descriptions. Unfortunately, the latter are in the back of the book instead of the front. The graphic format allows readers to search for visual as well as contextual clues. While the pages can get cluttered with text and word balloons, the artwork fits in nicely. Max and his friend Alison will take on any case, from a missing basketball card to a lobster on the lam. The cases are all solvable but not so easy that younger readers won't enjoy a challenge. Good additions to graphic-novel collections.-Sadie Mattox, DeKalb County Public Library, Decatur, GA

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
What better age for budding detectives than to be in seventh grade. Two boys engage in solving ten mysteries providing clues for the reader. Of course the mysteries don't end by letting the reader know "Who Dun It;" however, the answers to each are provided at the back of the book. At the end of each mystery is another puzzle that is also to be completed by the reader. Puzzles provide advice, suggestions, mad-libs and much more. At the end of the book, the mysteries are solved, but are handled by providing the solution and details describing how it was figured out. This is a terrific way to get young adults to think more deeply and logically. There are colorful illustrations, humorous text, and enough red herrings in each case to confuse the reader enough that they will need to do some deductive thinking. Both boys and girls will enjoy reading this book. There are page-by-page instructions addressing how to write your own comic which include the ideas, setting, character development, plot, and dialogue. The author also provides information about the illustrator and himself. What a great book! Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs
