Summary
Having solved the case of the missing mascot, sister-brother duo Moxie and Milton form their own detective agency. They get their first case when Moxie's best friend Emily receives a nice letter signed with nothing but a mysterious purple squiggle. Who sent it and why? Tenacious Moxie investigates; thoughtful Milton puts together the clues. They're the perfect team. If only they knew that. Convinced their detective styles are too different, the siblings split up to form their own agencies. But as more students receive letters, Moxie and Milton realize they must work together to find out who is behind this purple squiggle. The answer will warm your heart. Told in Moxie's singular voice, Two's a Crowd delivers clever storytelling in an irresistible, richly illustrated package.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "It's McCoy versus McCoy in this sequel to Swanson and Behr's standout previous book, The Real McCoys (2017). After joining forces to catch the school-mascot-napper in book one, Moxie and little brother Milton have yet to hash out the specifics of their new detective agency partnership. When Moxie's best friend, Emily, receives a kindhearted but mysterious letter, the McCoy siblings can't seem to get on the same page. Milton certainly shares the spotlight with his sister in this book, and he becomes a perfect foil to Moxie. Moxie channels her spiritual mentor, fictional Annabelle Adams, as she earnestly gathers evidence. That evidence means nothing, however, without Milton's ability to process the data and draw conclusions. Moxie makes the difficult decision to put her ego aside and reform the partnership with Milton, culminating in an ingenious reveal. Informative and signature witty back matter reinforces the book's appeal to precocious and curious young readers. Once again, Swanson's text and Behr's artwork are inextricable, making the siblings' story an outstanding, truly enjoyable reading experience.--Caitlin Kling Copyright 2018 Booklist"
