The Case of the Haunted Babysitter and Other Mysteries by Liam O'Donnell, Craig Battle, Ramon Perez


The Case of the Haunted Babysitter and Other Mysteries by Liam O'Donnell, Craig Battle, Ramon Perez

Whispering Meadows has plenty of secrets. Meet the duo that uncovers them. Amateur detective Max Finder and his aspiring journalist sidekick, Alison Santos, are on the case in this award-winning series of graphic novel solve-it-yourself mysteries. Can you avoid the dead ends and red herrings to sort the victims from the villians? Test your detective skills to the max!


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
