Steve Brixton always wanted to be a detective . . . until he found out he already was one. It all starts here: the thrilling story of Steve Brixton’s first case. Our hero has a national treasure to recover, a criminal mastermind to unmask, and a social studies report due Monday—all while on the run from cops, thugs, and secret-agent librarians. Just another day for a kid detective. "The boy detective novel is back with Mac Barnett's tongue-in-cheek homage to the Hardy Boys mysteries. Arte Johnson is spot-on as narrator. His serious, straightforward delivery adds just the right leavening to this funny and entertaining story.”—AudioFile "Arte Johnson gives Steve’s predicament a matter-of-fact, almost sardonic tone, with methodical pacing and understatement that provides listeners with laugh-out-loud enjoyment of this wholly improbable story. Fans will also enjoy the other titles in this series.”—School Library Journal

Mac Barnett is the author of two picture books: Guess Again! and Billy Twitters and His Blue Whale Problem

Mac Barnett is the author of two picture books: Guess Again! and Billy Twitters and His Blue Whale Problem. This is his first novel for young readers. He is on the board of directors of 826LA, a nonprofit writing center, and he founded the Echo Park Time Travel Mart, a convenience store for time travelers (seriously). The advice he finds there turns out to be invaluable when he is unwittingly thrust into his first case, clearing himself of a treason charge and identifying the elusive Mister E, seller of America's secrets. Arte Johnson is spot-on as narrator. His serious, straightforward delivery adds just the right leavening to this funny and entertaining story.

The Ghostwriter Secret (Brixton Brothers by Mac Barnett · Adam Rex. 2010·. Steve Brixton is fast becoming America's top detective. After saving the United States of America in The Case of the Case of Mistaken Identity, he has opened his own agency. Steve gets a call to solve the case of the Fairview diamond but it turns into an. Chloe and the Lion. Alex has been given a saccharine, sappy, silly-sweet picture book about Birthday Bunny that his grandma found at a garage sale. Alex isn. President Taft Is Stuck in the Bath.

The book has the most obvious similarities to The Hardy Boys, of course. My fellow school librarians should read this first book in the series if for no other reason than to savor the notion of librarians as part of an elite force of secret agents. Steve’s beloved Bailey Brothers are essentially Frank and Joe renamed Shawn and Kevin. But as for this book itself, I saw hints of other boy detective novels lurking in the corners. For example, early in the story Steve listens as his mother’s new boyfriend, a cop, recounts a crime happening in town that has the police stumped. For students looking for humor with their mystery, this series should fit the bill.

My 7-year-old daughter enjoyed this adventure and I enjoyed reading it to her. We laughed every time our hero Steve tried a sleuthing technique from his revered Bailey Brothers' Detective Handbook. Steve was always surprised when it did not work out the way it did in his favorite book. As always, Mac Barnett's writing is fun and full of fabulous vocabulary. He is the king of alliteration. I love this sentence, "Sometimes situations get seriously sticky, and sleuths need to get out of sight."

Dry wit, an appealing hero, silly but not dumb - this book has it all. It's sort of a Hardy Boys parody, but it doesn't have any of that "look how clever we are" smarminess that you find in most parodies of middle school and ya stalwarts. The pace is fast, but not the overly frantic breathlessness designed to cover up poor writing. It's just fun, and I would expect it to appeal to a wide range of readers.

I have seen a number of reviews and comments designed to market this book to "boys and reluctant readers". Lots of times that's a category filled with fart/booger/underpants books, which is unfair to boys, farts, and reluctant readers, (whatever, exactly, that group might be). While I understand, sort of, why some books are marketed that way, it really does an injustice to this book. This book will appeal to boys, girls, reluctant readers, and avid readers, because it is a good book.

Actually, it seems that this book might be considered the modern version of the Hardy Boys. Probably everyone who was a young reader read a few Hardy Boys books, and most people remember them with a certain fondness. But, if you have tried one lately you might have been surprised by how slow and simple they are, and how dead the prose and characterization is. The Brixton books are hipper, leaner, funnier, better plotted and, of course, more current. The mysteries themselves are also better. So, if you think your young reader might like the Hardy Boys, you might want to consider putting this in his hands instead.

I was reading a chapter or so of this book with my son every night until today. He got up early to read ahead, took the book in the car and read, continued reading it after he got home from school...and left me behind. I really appreciate the Amazon reviewers who recommended this book. It's entertaining enough for adults to read with their kids, and obviously entertaining enough to motivate my boy to read ahead! I couldn't be happier as a parent (and I will finish reading it when my son is done with it).

This is one of the most awesome books I have read! The second one just came out, and my boys couldn't wait to read it. They were tickled with it and had to show me parts of it. This first book is so dumb that it's GOOD!! That's weird but true! However, I also did not like the ending, but--since I'm a librarian--plotting a mystery around the library idea was fantastic!! Bring on more in this series!!

Another in the series of Brixton Brothers detective books. Written on a level just below The Hardy Boys series, these books will provide excitement for your 6 to 9 year old.

For my 5th grade class. Loved it!

The book was bought for our eleven year old grandson and he thoroughly enjoyed the book. It was entertaining and a tale of adventure, which appeals to a boy of that age. If you like stories of suspense and mystery, you should enjoy this book, as well.
