Milo & Jazz Mysteries • Praise for The Case of the Superstar Scam

“Students would love to follow Milo and Jazz, detectives in training, as they organize facts to solve mysteries in this fun and interesting book for young readers. This book is great for demonstrating real-life uses of Venn diagrams, and it encourages the reader to draw conclusions and use logic. Six- and seven-year-olds thought it was very exciting and could hardly wait to discover the truth. This would be a wonderful addition to the library of a teacher who is looking to connect math and literacy objectives.”

“This series continues to have so much going for it. Not only are the mysteries solvable and the line drawings a plus, but both the detective duo and readers benefit from the presence of Dash Marlowe, a private eye who corresponds with Milo and Jazz and offers brain teasers at the end of the book. Clever and fun.”
