about

“Give this to fans of Encyclopedia Brown who are looking for longer (and funnier!) well-plotted mysteries.” —Booklist on Howard Wallace, P.I.

“My partner scanned the message and a slow grin took over her face as she said our four favorite words: We have a case.’”
HOWARD WALLACE IS BACK!
Middle-school detectives Howard Wallace and Ivy Mason are itching for a juicy case. But when their friend and cohort Marvin hires them to prove his nephew— über-bully Carl Dean—didn’t pugnap the school mascot, they’re less than thrilled. To succeed, not only must Howard and Ivy play nice with Carl, they’ll have to dodge a scrappy, snoopy reporter and come face-to-face with Howard’s worst enemy, his ex-best friend Miles Fletcher. Can Howard deal with all these complications and still be there for Ivy when her life is turned upside down? Or will he once again find himself a friendless P.I.?

Another sequel is in the offing, and young mystery fans should be glad.” —Kirkus Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Howard Wallace, P.I.   “Strong writing, relatable themes, and a solid mystery combine for a read that both boys and girls will have trouble putting down.” —School Library Journal “ . . . offers a few laughs, believable characters, and enough realistic kid detecting to keep young PIs turning pages. . . . Likely to see sequels; Howard and Ivy deserve them.” –Kirkus Reviews “On occasion this is over the top, but that usually adds to the entertainment value. Give this to fans of Encyclopedia Brown who are looking for longer (and funnier!) well-plotted mysteries.” —Booklist “A middle-school gumshoe takes on a new case—and a new partner—in this promising first installment of a series that cleverly introduces the world of classic private eyes to young readers. . . . Engagingly blending the fictional world of dames and private eyes with keen insights about adolescent friendship, Lyall’s debut is a winner.” —Publishers Weekly *“Lyall’s crack at the trending genre of middle-grade noir is an absolute delight . . . Banter between Howard and Ivy is snappy with a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it pace, and the humor ranges from subtle wit to LOL comedy. The case brings up some emotional turmoil for Howard, but it’s seamlessly woven into the larger mystery plot, adding depth to the story but never overwhelming it. . . . a solidly entertaining introduction to hard-boiled detectives.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review) “Another sequel is in the offing, and young mystery fans should be glad.” —Kirkus Reviews
