Review: Real McCoys by Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr

29752140Real McCoys by Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr

Her name's Moxie. Moxie McCoy.

Bold, opinionated, and haplessly self-confident, the world's greatest fourth-grade detective faces her biggest challenge! When someone kidnaps beloved school mascot Eddie the Owl, Moxie is on the case--but she's forced to fly solo now that her best friend (and crime-solving partner) has moved away.

Moxie must interview her classmates--both as potential new best friends and as possible suspects. She finds clues and points fingers but can't save the owl on her own. Enter Moxie's little brother, Milton. Quiet, cautious, and boring as a butter knife, he's a good listener.

Can the Real McCoys form an unlikely alliance and solve the crime of the century?

Cover Review:
I think this is a really cute cover, the illustrations are amazing, and I like the color choices.


Real McCoys was an entertaining, cute Middle Grade story. Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr made the story come alive with interesting characters Moxie and Milton were both very smart children with big imaginations that I believe many children, who read this story, would relate to and love, and even want to be like. I loved the distinct personalities of all of the characters.

Robbi Behr's illustrations were absolutely amazing, and I believe would hold younger children's attention, and they added to the story by helping bring it alive. Another thing that I absolutely loved about the book was the way in which the story was written around the illustrations.

I think this is a great book for parents to read to their children. I also think this is a great book for others who enjoy reading Middle Grade books. It's very enjoyable, and I found myself flying through the story - although it is written in a way that I felt like didn't take long to get through the story.
