Review quote

Great for readers who enjoy mysteries in the vein of Encyclopedia Brown. Booklist In order to crack the cases, readers need to be observant and thoughtful and to have an eye for detail. In the absence of such qualities, however, I think that Max Finder Mystery may be an excellent tool to help young readers develop such traits. Gregory Bryan, children's literature professor at University of Manitoba, for CM Magazine
