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.

With the chance to make some money by uncovering the secrets of mysterious ”gadgets” from the 20th century for the Bluggsville City Museum, Max and his faithful, but slightly neurotic, robo-dog Oscar start investigating.

But the path to success is never easy, and there are sinister tricks, strange characters and lots of challenges along the way.

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.

  1. Max Booth Future Sleuth: Tape Escape is highly recommended for boys aged 7+. Young readers will love reading about such a strong and resilient character like Max. They will laugh at his hi-jinks and imagine the high-tech futuristic world he lives in. Readers will want a robot dog just like Oscar. Max Booth is a quick moving story where good wins over evil. The vocabulary is descriptive and easy to read and will encourage reluctant readers. It is a great first chapter story.

  4. Terrific Blog with Romi Sharp @Boomerang Books on Cameron Macintoshs new sci-fi series for kids. Illustrated by the very clever @Dave Atze
    Certainly one to goggle over (or google if you’re under 20), for its fascinating reflections into technological history and advancements.

  5. Cameron Macintosh includes many puns and funny references to old technology as he brings a realistic future world to life. David Atze’s cartoons add fun to the easy to read text for younger readers as they begin engaging with chapter books. Max Booth Future Sleuth is suited to high-interest lower reading age students as well.
