The second volume in this award-winning graphic novel series contains ten comics and lots of puzzles to help readers hone their sleuthing skills. Storylines are intriguing, age-appropriate, and relevant; illustrations are detailed and compelling; and dialogue is snappy. Each solve-it-yourself comic stars amateur detective Max Finder and his best friend, budding journalist Alison Santos. Seventh graders at Central Meadows Junior High, these two intrepid investigators must call upon their skills to crack each case before them. Cases in this volume include "The Case of the Trail Trap," "The Case of the Lucky Skates," and "The Case of the Elvis Prankster." Clues appear in words and images, so readers must develop their eye for detail in order to solve the mysteries. Solutions appear at the end of each comic, explaining whodunit and why, and the clues that cracked the case. Bonus content unique to this volume includes a peek inside illustrator Michael Cho's sketchbook and quizzes, match-ups, and jumbles. Crammed with clues and stuffed with enough suspects and red herrings to keep readers guessing until the very last panel, Max Finder Mystery Collected Casebook Volume 2 promises to engage pre-teens with hours of whodunit fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Draws you in! Max Finder's adventures are compelling reads that don't just play on the general detective tropes. Each comic is different and introduces characters with some developed backgrounds, depending on whether they're recurrent in the Max Finder Mystery universe. They're quick to read, but amazing and often have some major twists that surprise you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the whole series! Both my kids (ages 5 &8) love listening and figuring out the mysteries. Each story takes less than 15 min to read. I keep them in the car and read them to my youngest while waiting for school to get out/violin lessons to be over ect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Son's Favorite Books My son loves to read but is picky on what he likes. He reads these books over and over again. He loves the activities at the end of each story. For his birthday instead of treat bags he wanted to give each of his guests copies of these books as he thought all his friends would love them too.
