Description
The author of the Tillerman series, including the Newbery Medal winner Dicey's Song and the Newbery Honor Book A Solitary Blue, Cynthia Voigt here introduces us to an intriguing young hero in a rollicking mystery series for readers 10 to 13. At the turn of the 20th century, young Maximilian Starling finds himself apparently abandoned. His parents are actors, and thus unpredictable, but sailing away, leaving Max with only a cryptic note, is unusual even for them. Did they intend to leave him behind? Have they been kidnapped? Until he can figure it out, Max thinks it safer to keep a low profile. Hiding out is no problem for a child of the theateróMax has played many roles, he can be whoever he needs to be to blend inóbut finding gainful employment is tricky. As it turns out, however, Max has a talent for finding things, including a runaway child, a stray dog, a missing heirloom, and a lost love. So is he a detective, or something more?

"Whether it's finding a good home for a lost dog, facilitating the reunion of disappointed lovers, or recovering a long-lost heirloom, Max displays good sense, a sensitive nature, and winning ingenuity. He resists being labeled a detective and since he merely guides people toward the resolution of their troubles, it's fitting that he calls himself a 'solutioneer.' By book's end, however, he has not answered his own questions. Readers still don't know what has happened to his parents, for example. This will likely leave them strangely contented, knowing that Voigt has so much more to reveal in the sequels to this comedic page-turner."óSchool Library Journal
