7 reviews for Max Booth Future Sleuth Book 2

  1. Max Booth Future Sleuth is a marvellous junior fiction series about orphan boy Max Booth and his robot dog Oscar.

  2. Terrific Blog with Romi Sharp @Boomerang Books on Cameron Macintoshs new sci-fi series for kids. Illustrated by the very clever @Dave Atze
    Set in 2424, it is a comically suspenseful story that sees Max and Oscar in all sorts of strife…
    Dave Atze’s illustrations are humorous, energetic and befittingly shrewd.

  3. “This is a fun and fast-moving series packed with action.” – KBR

  4. “A fun and futuristic junior fiction series kids will love.”

  5. Offers something fresh and fun. Besides the interesting world-building, there is plenty of humour and action throughout the novel to keep readers engaged and giggling, plus a resident “baddie” who Max and his robo-pal have to thwart and evade. The book also deals with themes of family, friendship, resourcefulness, resilience, perseverance, and doing the right thing.

  6. “I think that [Selfie Search] is a good book with a lot of imagination. It’s funny and exotic and a book that I would read again! It also encourages me to use my imagination and think outside the box.

  7. I think these novels would be great to use with a class when discussing historical artefacts. This is an easy to read book that has lots of adventure and action. I enjoyed the descriptions of Max’s modern world and the fun the author had with the statue’s character, the major, Nicole Squidman – a famous actor who won lots of awards. Author Cameron MacIntosh’s background is in educational texts and he has written over 80 books.
    The larger text and cartoon style illustrations will appeal to young, independent readers in years 3 to 6.
