Keep an eye out for the March 1st issue of Kirkus Reviews. The Maltese Mummy, by Trina Robbins and Tyler Page, received an encouraging review.
The Maltese Mummy is the second volume of the Chicagoland Detective Agency, a series of graphic novels starring kid sleuths Megan and Raf (and dog sleuth Bradley). These funny, hip, and energetic mysteries are sure to entertain the young readers in your life.
Here is a snippet of Kirkus’ review:
“Robbins’ sophomore preteen detective effort (The Drained Brains Caper, 2010) is a tale that’s light on mystery but makes up for it with age-appropriate edgy, sarcastic humor and pop-culture jibes. Page’s black-and-white cartoon panels are full of pulpy action and visually exciting cinematography and include several “screen shots” from MyBlogFace. Readers of book one will spot the villain long before the heroes do, making them feel extra smart. Good graphic fun.”
