When he came to my school he told us about this book and it sounded really good. Another great mystery by Chris Grabenstein is on it's way!!!!!!
One of the best books ever, it reminds me of my childhood
I haven't read a middle grade book in years and I probably wouldn't have until I was asked to review Riley Mack and the Other Known Troublemakers . The title alone got my attention and I'm sure will be even more appealing to the age group it's meant for. I also like the cover, actually that goes for most middle grade books they have no problems keeping book covers original. Now on to the actual book, I found myself laughing within the first few pages. Tons of smart come backs, funny phrases and innocent fun. Riley Mack and his crew are a great set of characters all with their own individual personalities that Grabenstein really made shine through. Riley and his friends are a group of kids I would have loved to grow up with. They are all about doing what is right, standing up to the bullies and the younger kids really looked up to them. As far as the bad guys you had your bully, bank robbers, a grandma who ran a puppy mill, a banker with a gambling problem and Police Chief Brown who was one crooked cop. Hopefully there is a book two to this series in which Chief Brown gets what he deserves also. Overall I had a blast reading this with tons of laugh out loud moments. If you have kids who are between ages 8-12 or if you are still a kid at heart and enjoy a good fast paced middle grade book with mystery and it's share of comedy I highly recommend Riley Mack and the Other Known Troublemakers.
Riley Mack was labeled a troublemaker after an ill-advised attempt to steal an ice cream cake. Now he tries to help his friends out of problems with school bullies. But when one friend has his dog stolen, Riley and the gang may be in over their heads. There's lots going on here that will keep kids engaged. Personally, I thought the characters were a little weak, but I don't think kids will notice or care.
