Product Details


Fleischman and Roberts work in perfect synch to deliver a noirish mystery that’s as delightfully eccentric as the kids themselves.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

The wry, economical text works in seamless partnership with the stylized, one-of-a-kind watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations to move the zippy story line forward…The Dunderheads might be “half-pint hooligans” or underestimated budding geniuses, but either way young readers will surely line up in droves for this winning gang’s latest adventure.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

The Dunderheads are back in another amusing caper that’s sure to please fans of their earlier exploits (THE DUNDERHEADS, 2009)… Readers of all ages will enjoy poring over the pages to find the hidden humor. Delightfully smart and deliciously funny—don’t miss it.
—Kirkus Reviews

As diverse as the kids themselves. Roberts re-creates the self-reliant, multi-talented crew from THE DUNDERHEADS with the same wit and panache, the perfect complement to Fleischman’s snappy, kid-friendly narration; a highly entertaining triumph by kids over adults’ summary injustice.
—The Horn Book
