Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“…short but interesting mysteries…Clues are laid out for the sharp eye and clever reader in everything from dialogue to art details in the background, which the clean, inviting art by Perez makes a pleasure to search for.”
-- Publishers Weekly
Children's Literature - Michael Jung PhD
Taken from the pages of OWL Magazine, this collection of Max Finder mysteries follows the junior sleuth and his friends as they crack cases ranging from stolen gifts to Halloween pranks to kidnapped dogs. Told through a mix of comic book-style stories interspaced with prose stories, each mystery invites readers to re-examine the circumstances of each crime and solve the mystery themselves before turning the page and reading the final solution. While the writers and artist slip in several false leads and red herrings to throw kids off track, careful readers who take the time to examine each comic panel and backtrack through each tale should be able to find the culprit for each crime—although they may not discover all the surprising clues the creators left for them. It is an entertaining collection of cases, done in the spirit of Donald Sobol's "Encyclopedia Brown" detective book series, yet definitely aimed at a younger crowd. Reviewer: Michael Jung, PhD
