★ “The first book in the Milo & Jazz Mysteries series gets it just right: a fun, easy-to-solve mystery, readily identifiable young detectives, and some extras readers will enjoy…. Even kids who aren’t sports-oriented will enjoy flexing their detective skills here and in the second installment in the series, The Case of the Poisoned Pig. The story cleverly ends with new materials … offering additional opportunities for armchair sleuthing.” —Booklist, starred review
“This book hits all the right notes.” —Booklist, The 100 Best Children’s and YA Mysteries of the Past 10 Years
“The stories are quick and satisfying, and challenges at the back of the books contribute to the enjoyment. Wummer’s pencil and ink illustrations add a humorous touch and are perfect for the stories. Each volume ends with additional ‘brain stretchers’ and mini-cases.” —School Library Journal
