Special Order


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
