Saxby Smart, Private Detective
Author: Simon Cheshire
Illustrator: R. W. Alley
Age Group: 7 to 9
Lexile Range: 730L
About the series: Saxby Smart is no ordinary 10-year-old. He's the best detective in the world, or at least the best one who also happens to be in elementary school.
Each book in this series includes three solve-it-yourself cases. The reader is encouraged to solve the mystery alongside Saxby, be his sidekick as it were, getting peeks at pages of his casebook as the crimes unfold, and searching for clues rather than letting the main character do all the work and have all the fun.
