Ten year old detective Saxby Smart is… smart. What he loves best is using his smarts to solve mysteries, and he’s developing quite a reputation as a detective among the grade-school set! In this collection of cases, he is hired to find out how a friend’s father is being spied on at work, who is sabotaging homework with purple goo, and what happened to a valuable brooch. Pay close attention, because every now and then, the author will ask, "Have you solved the case yet?" and will question you about the clues. See if you can out-smart Saxby, and solve the cases on your own!  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face nominee, 2011)
