Reviewed by Vernita Naylor for Readers' Favorite Striker Jones and the Midnight Archer (Volume 2) by Maggie M Larche is a fun filled educational children’s book about Striker Jones, the Boy Detective. Striker Jones is not your average young man because he is on a quest to solve mysteries wherever he goes. In each chapter like Pop Secret, Relay Race Riddles, Talented or Terrible? or Sabotage at the Starlight Dance, Maggie not only tells a great story but after each story she includes a mystery to be solved. While everyone is perplexed as to what happened, Striker Jones comes to the rescue and solves the mystery at hand. As children read through each story, they will not only be intrigued by the stories, but they will have the ability to help solve the mysteries. How does this happen? In each story, Maggie leads readers into the mystery, then she asks a question, and then begins the thinking process, and then Maggie provides the solution. I found Striker Jones and the Midnight Archer (Volume 2) by Maggie M Larche to be a lot of fun. It reminded me of when I was a child and I would read various types of stories, especially mysteries, which lead me to want to read more. I was intrigued by mystery stories because of the challenges and the suspense, just like Striker Jones. Any child that picks up a copy of Striker Jones and the Midnight Archer (Volume 2) by Maggie M Larche will come away not only being entertained by each and every story, but will learn how to solve challenges that they encounter.
