Praise For Eddie Red Undercover: Mystery on Museum Mile…
—School Library Journal
"This is a strong start to a promising new series, and as Eddie would say, it's uber-cool."
"In Wells's lighthearted, voice-driven debut novel, first in a planned series, Eddie never truly seems in danger, but his audacity and persistance, a clever mystery that unfolds atmospherically, and Calo's sly pencil portraits result in a fun sleuthing story."
