Best Friends. Detectives. They don't go looking for trouble; it has them on speed dial!
I loved the themes of this book. Family and sibling relationships were highlighted. They all have their ups and downs and I loved the two boys banter.
Friendships.. they make new friends and encounter many personalities along the way.
Right and wrong. These boys have a drive to help when things go wrong. I love their aspiration to solve the mysteries.
No, it's not the hardest whodunit to uncover, but I still think it will keep young readers entertained and thinking.
Well done, this series and these characters are definitely worth the read of future mysteries.
