In their first book, Max Finder and Alison Santos invited readers to don their deerstalkers and join them in their crime-solving adventures. This all-new collection serves up ten more mystifying whodunits requiring the reader's powers of deduction. In -The Case of the Trail Trap, The Case of the Angry Anchorman, - -The Case of the Gander River Grudge- and seven other baffling cases, youngsters must decode Morse messages, take a forensics quiz, and test their sleuthing smarts in order to solve the crimes. False clues and a full lineup of likely suspects keep readers guessing until the last panel. Detailed solutions at the back of the book allow young sleuths to determine if his or her solution is the correct one. With its likable protagonists, fantastic full-color artwork, and funny, action-packed stories, the Max Finder series keeps preteens engaged and entertained even as it improves their problem-solving skills.
