  Welcome to the Monroe Detective Agency...

When 10-year-old Max Monroe moves into his Grandpa Harry’s country house, he discovers a zany ghost living in the back yard. The ghost turns out to be his Uncle Larry, a bumbling detective who never solved one measly case in his entire career!

Things start to look up when Max joins Larry to solve mysteries in this new and exciting chapter book series.

The offbeat idea of a boy detective with a ghost as a sidekick provides this story with lots of opportunities for inside jokes and misunderstandings.

This is a terrific chapter book series for newly independent readers who are ready for something more challenging than a first reader, with simple sentences, humorous dialogue and very short chapters, designed to make the reading experience less daunting. The limited black-and-white illustrations (around one per chapter) by Kim Smith provide details that enrich the story. The series provides a great introduction to the mystery genre, perfect for honing critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
