Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Swanson's witty text is enhanced exponentially by Behr's bold, original artwork to create a uniquely told whodunit with wide appeal to middle-grade readers. Moxie McCoy commands her name fittingly: she's an independent, self-assured fourth-grader who is as obsessed with solving mysteries as she is with finding the perfect replacement for her best friend, who has recently moved away. With guidance from her literary hero amateur sleuth Annabelle Adams Moxie is determined to solve the critical question of who took school mascot Eddie the owl out of his display case, and in time for the awards ceremony at day's end. Whimsical cartoon illustrations and evocative hand lettering work in tandem with the text to tell a refreshing school story that genuinely captures the paramount importance of everyday elementary school experiences. Laugh-out-loud one-liners (guacamole is basically just an avocado that fulfilled its destiny) and short comic strips juxtapose refreshing moments of sincerity that normalize different types of diversity. What starts as Moxie's solo mission ends up a family endeavor as her timid little brother, Milton, becomes a vital player and ultimately Moxie's new sleuthing partner. Equally hilarious and informative back matter (a glossary and mission debrief) is the perfect conclusion to an exceptional book that respects its young readers.--Kling, Caitlin Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Swanson and Behr-the husband-wife creators of Everywhere, Wonder and Babies Ruin Everything-track a delightfully topsy-turvy day at Tiddlywhump Elementary in this heavily illustrated and impressively designed story. Their heroine is the hugely self-confident and aptly named Moxie McCoy, a 10-year-old aspiring sleuth inspired by an intrepid fictional detective. As the novel unfolds, Moxie interviews candidates to replace a best friend who moved away, attempts to identify the person who stole school mascot Eddie the Owl, and expects to clinch the award given to the student "who has best lived up to Eddie's ideals of courage, patience, and wisdom." Quick to judge and jump to conclusions, she doesn't mince words: a pair of twins vying for the award "are about as lovable as the bumps on the end of an alligator's nose." Snappy analogies, similes, and double entendres play out in Behr's energetic illustrations, a rambunctious jumble of cartoons, fonts, and dialogue balloons. At the heart of the story is Moxie's deepening rapport with her bookish younger brother, Max, and readers will hope to see more of both siblings soon. Ages 8-12.
