About the Book
Title: Josh and the Gumshoe News Crew: The Super Secret | Author: Melissa Perry Moraja | Publication Date: May 5, 2014 | Publisher: Melissa Productions | Pages: 154 | Recommended Ages: 6+ (read-aloud)
Summary: Up until a few days ago, nothing extraordinary had ever happened in ten year old Josh Wunderkind’s life – except eating a whole pot of pasta by himself. But that all changed after a mammoth-sized bird hit him smack on the face with a glob of neon green bird poop, triggering his superhuman Wunderkind ability and leaving him with the responsibility of caring for a baby bird he named Max. Now Josh was just like his older brother and twin sister Madison-super extraordinary! But what Josh didn’t realize was that being superhuman wasn’t all fun and games.
And things only got more complex in Josh’s life when his two siblings and a couple neighborhood friends persuade him to lead a super crime-solving, neighborhood news team—the Gumshoe News Crew. But not before they agree on the Super Secret and complete Gumshoe Boot Camp.
Find out what the Super Secret is. Will the Gumshoe News Crew complete boot camp? Or will Josh let his team down?
Storytime Books Review: I thought this book was really humorous, and it does fit the age group for 6-12, but also I think older children as well. The story seemed to flow really well together, and I think that this is a book that children will be able to relate to because of the characters. This is definitely a page turner that will leave you wanting more at the end! This is a great book that parents can read with children, or a great book for that early reader that is wanting to read a book of their own. So if you are wanting to check out a great series for that early reader of yours, I would recommend this one! For more about the author and the series, keep reading below!
