“A fun and futuristic junior fiction series kids will love.” Just Write for Kids
There’s a new sleuth in town – he’s fun, funny, and very 2424!
About The Series: Max Booth is an 11-year-old ‘shadie’ urchin living in the year 2424, struggling to survive.
Book 1: Max, and Oscar have been asked to identify an object that’s baffling everyone – a 1980s cassette tape. But there’s more to this tape than meets the eye. The tape contains long lost songs from a popular ”mega-star” David Snowie, and now there’s a strange musicological expert who clearly wants to stop them in their tracks.
Book 2: Max has been handed an ancient mobile phone. It’s from the year 2017, which makes it more than 400 years old! What’s more, it’s full of photos – all of the same person.
Book 3: A tiny piece of paper from the year 2019 might not sound very interesting to most people. But Max and Oscar – Bluggsville’s sharpest sleuths – aren’t most people! Max has a hunch that this ancient patch of paper might be valuable, and extremely rare.

Cameron Macintosh’s debut children’s fantasy sci-fi series for middle graders, Max Booth Future Sleuth, is a mind-bending, time-warping fun adventure about a boy and his robo-dog sidekick on a mission to uncover the truths about ‘ancient’ artefacts (Are the ‘80s really that ancient?!). The first book to send us looping back and forth between time zones is Tape Escape. Set in 2424, it is a comically suspenseful story that sees Max and Oscar in all sorts of strife, following the theft of the valuable, all-encompassing, legendary David Snowie-archived cassette tape from the hands of a maniacal musicology nutter. Certainly one to goggle over (or google if you’re under 20), for its fascinating reflections into technological history and advancements – Boomerang Books
