New in paperback! In the second West Meadows mystery, Myron and Hajrah track down a robot thief

Myron, the third-grade detective who loves logic, facts, and solving mysteries, gets the chance to crack another case when he finds out his classmate Jordan’s robot has been stolen. Jordan and tech-savvy Danielle, known as “Glitch,” had been working on it for weeks for the upcoming Maker Faire Robot Maze Challenge.

Together with his detective partner, the hyper-energetic Hajrah, Myron pins down two suspects: Sarah “Smasher” McGintley, the school bully, and Lionel Amar, another robot builder who was caught with Jordan and Glitch’s plans. But after investigating the case further, they find out the thief is someone entirely unexpected.

Myron’s unique perspective from the autism spectrum and his eye for detail make him a top-notch sleuth. Similarly, the other neurodiverse kids in his resource room demonstrate creative problem solving and unique talents that come in handy for the case.

Black-and-white spot illustrations accompany the text in this fun and accessible page-turner for independent readers. With a connection to STEAM and the maker movement, this book is an exciting next installment in the West Meadows Detectives series.

LIAM O’DONNELL is an award-winning author and educator who has created over 40 graphic novels and books for reluctant readers. He lives in London, Ontario.

AURE´LIE GRAND graduated from Capilano University in British Columbia and now works as an illustrator in Montreal, Quebec.

"Readers will enjoy following Myron's developing, appealing voice as much as they do following clues." - Kirkus Reviews

"The cast of characters is diverse and realistic, depicted with nuance and individuality." - Booklist

"Suspenseful...intriguing...a superb tool to teach students to make predictions as they read. ...This gripping chapter book with a surprise ending is one that children will not want to put down. Recommended." - Canadian Review of Materials
