Solve It With Saxby, a new series aimed at unraveling the mystery of getting boys excited about reading.

Saxby Smart is no ordinary ten-year-old. He's the best detective in the world, or at least the best one who also happens to be in elementary school. In this brand new series--with three cases in each book--the reader solves the mystery alongside Saxby, getting peeks at pages of his casebook as the crimes unfold, and searching for clues rather than letting the main character do all the work and have all the fun.

Great fun for my third grade son to read. He is loving all three of the Saxby Smart books.

There are three stories in this book, and they are all awesome and interesting. If you like kid detective books, this book is for you!

Every detective should have a Thinking Chair. I'm sure Philip Marlowe would have had things tied up in the space of a short story if only he'd had a Thinking Chair.
