Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Saxby will appeal to mystery fanatics and fans of Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, and Encyclopedia Brown.” School Library Journal

Outstanding fare for young armchair Sherlocks.” –Starred, Booklist
"The cases are timely and twisting enough to keep the light bulb bright in the young sleuth’s mind." -Kirkus Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—With three new cases, Saxby proves to be the go-to kid for solving mysteries. The boy relies heavily on the power of observation and drawing logical conclusions to find a missing comic worth $100,000 and a treasure in an old house that's about to be demolished and discover who has broken into six children's houses, all in the same teacher's classroom. His faithful friends Izzy and Muddy are wonderful sidekicks who go beyond Saxby's observations with outside investigation and research. The cases can be solved by readers, and the questions posed throughout the text make sure that they are following the clues. Expressive black-and-white cartoons are scattered throughout. Saxby will appeal to mystery fanatics and fans of Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, and Encyclopedia Brown.—Delia Carruthers, Roxbury Public Library, Succasunna, NJ
Kirkus Reviews
Middle-grader Saxby Smart is back in his Thinking Chair for three more stories in this second volume of his mystery series (The Curse of the Ancient Mask and Other Case Files, 2009). Speaking congenially to readers, Saxby invites them to help deduce the clues. In the first case, Saxby must find a rare comic book that's gone missing from a locked safe, and he uncovers lots of interesting comic-book trivia in the process of discovering the motive-old-fashioned greed-and the perp. The middle is the most engrossing of the three stories, involving an historic mansion with a dark past where Saxby's friend finds a scroll hidden in the wall that leads them on a brain-teasing hunt to the real "Treasure of Dead Man's Lane." Last, Saxby must unravel the enigma of six students who all have two things in common: home intruders and an anti-stress class. Troublemaker Harry Lovecraft makes a reappearance, and his uncle plays a key role in the mystery. Generously dappled with Alley's breezy line drawings, the cases are timely and twisting enough to keep the light bulb bright in the young sleuth's mind. (Mystery. 8-12)

Meet the Author

SIMON CHESHIRE, of Warwick, England, published his first book in the U.K. in 1997. Since then, his books have been published in many languages worldwide.

Best known for illustrating the Paddingto n Bear series, R. W. ALLEY has illustrated more than seventy books, including THERE'S A WOLF AT THE DOOR, written by his wife, Zoë. He lives in Barrington, Rhode Island.


Simon Cheshire is the author of numerous books for children, including the second Saxby Smart book The Treasure of Dead Man's Lane and Other Case Files. He lives in Warwick, England.
My parents saved everything, so I know that I began drawing sometime around age two. I haven't paused since. In fact, my drawings now and my drawings then bear a rather strong resemblance. I have gotten slightly better at hands, but horses remain a problem. For an only child, growing up in New York, Texas, South Carolina and finally for most of the time in Annapolis, Maryland, drawing was fine self-entertainment. Then, as now, I have always enjoyed most making pictures that illustrate a story rather than hang on a wall. Today I live in Barrington, Rhode Island with the lovely Zoë B. Alley, author, wife and mother of our two clever children, Cassandra and Max.
I make my pictures in a studio that has a rolling ladder, more books than I can count and many tubes of half-used, rock-hard paint. For the last ten years one of my big projects has been to illustrate new and old stories of Paddington Bear. I have also made pictures for over one hundred other books since I started doing all this right out of college in 1979. I didn't go to art school, but received a BA in Art History from Haverford College and then spent four years as a staff artist at several greeting card companies. Since then, I have spent my working time in my slippers trying to avoid illustrating stories with horses.
