Book Review by Albus

Max Finder Mystery: Collected Casebook, volume 5, by Craig Battle and Ramon Perez, published by Owlkids.

It’s a bunch of different comics, and they’re mysteries. Some of the clues are hidden inside pictures–they’re not always words. I like how the artist draws the characters. I found out about Max Finder in Owl magazine. I like mysteries because they’re fun to try and figure out who did it. I like comics because it tells a story with pictures.

I also liked how you could find clues on the way while you were reading it, as if you were the detective. Then you could find out if you were right or wrong at the very end of the mystery.

I think it’s made for 7-13 year olds. It’s made for multi-gender (boys and girls). This book is cool.

    This sounds like a good book – I like that some of the clues are in the pictures. I’m curious whether you found that you usually guessed the answer to the mystery or not.

    Albus replies that he figured out most of the mysteries. He says he looked really closely to find all the clues.
